“Yea, I think I’m done here. This pandemic, extreme lack of social interaction, no intimacy, combined with constant public ridicule is making life harder than it’s worth.
“I think I will end my tenure here on earth soon. I’m not begging for attention or asking for sympathy/empathy. I’m just ready to go. Peacefully of course.
“I will document my last times and release a film for you all to finally understand me, from my perspective… My soul is tired. I’m ready to go.”

“I am fine, better than I was before,” she wrote in a post accompanied by a picture of herself smiling.
She also called out those she said never cared she existed before but are now showing concerns amid her situation.
“Don’t express concern for me when I’m down. You can do that when I’m up there. Support me when I’m feeling good and got smile on my face.
“Don’t support me when I’m crying or down. Do that when I’m showing my creativity and releasing new music…” she said.
Sending positive thoughts to Azealia Banks. The industry and the internet has treated her extremely unfairly. Yes she’s said & done some nasty things but so have many other celebrities with bipolar disorder, yet they are met with empathy and “free passes” while she is demonised. pic.twitter.com/U2By5E0eqJ— Mojo Jojo (@readyplayerjoe) August 9, 2020
