Thanks to everybody that was concerned and the calls and texts as I understand I made a bold statement but don’t worry I’m not suicidal and have no plans on harming.”

Fans are worried about Kodak Black’s mental health after the rapper posted some troubling messages on Twitter on Thursday night.

“So Lonely Depressed Sad & Fucked Up … Nobody Cares … I’m Everywhere @ Once … Friends Playin In My Head … Girls Playin Wit My Heart, Wish I Can Go Back To The Start I’ll Never Be Famous,” he wrote.

In a second tweet, he said, “Sitting In My Room Crying Feel Like Killing Myself.”

He then deactivated both his Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Last month, Kodak made headlines after he violated his probation by failing a drug test, and was reportedly ordered to enter a 90-day treatment program. Sources told TMZ that he had entered the program.

Earlier in September, he revealed that his on and off-again girlfriend, real estate agent Maranda Johnson is pregnant with his second child, a baby girl, who is due in late 2021 or early 2022. The couple has been involved for the last four years or so, and Kodak is “ecstatic” about his new daughter, per TMZ. He also has a six-year-old son named King from a previous relationship.

Kodak was recently engaged to rapper Mellow Rackz, with the pair announcing their pending nuptials by getting each other’s names tattooed on them. It’s unclear what Kodak’s relationship status is at the moment.
