On Tuesday, celebrities shared their support for CupcakKe via Twitter, including Charli XCX, Lizzo, and Iggy Azalea.
Charli, a close collaborator, wrote CupcakKe a long note, where she called the Chicago native “one of the most unique, genuine, and loving people I have ever met in this industry.”
Word about CupcakKe’s safety initially got out through her friend, comedian Elijah Daniel who, after seeing CupcakKe’s tweet began texting and calling her, her team, mother, and mutual friends. He eventually got through to the Chicago Police Department, which did a wellness check on the artist. She was subsequently taken to the hospital.
Over the last couple days, CupcakKe's tweets have been somewhat distressing. On Sunday, the 21-year-old tweeted, “I’ll rather just drop you instead of cheat on you.”
She followed the message with a couple more tweets on Monday, writing, “Nothing feels better than this,” and “The first sign you get of someone abusive , you run for good and never turn back,” before tweeting that she wanted to commit suicide.
