G.R.L. singer Simone Battle had been struggling with financial problems before committing suicide … TMZ has learned.
We know friends and family members told law enforcement … Battle was depressed over money issues recently — the family wasn’t specific but they were clear … money was bringing her down.
The family didn’t quite understand, because Battle was part of a successful singing group that had just completed an overseas tour.
People close to Battle told cops … she was frustrated that she hadn’t hit in the U.S. and worried she never would. Apparently Battle wasn’t cutting it financially overseas.
last year when i had no job and was broke as hell,
i tried to take my own life.
it is definitely no secret.
i documented it all on here during those dark times.
even some days recently,
feeling like i’m stuck in this dead end job,
the thought crossed my mind.
even though i am blessed to have a job,
i feel completely stagnant and going nowhere.
i felt so depressed yesterday going to work.
with my google adsense fail,
and working around people who don’t respect me,
i was ready to give up.
i worked a great fashion week last week,
but the issue is i had a taste of what i wanted to do with my life.
i love spending time on my site and connecting with people who “get me”.
sadly i’m a slave to a desk job.
i feel her tho.
it has little to do with money,
but more with where is life is taking you.
you imagine in your head where your success should take you,
but life has a way of throwing curve balls towards your head.
not doing what you love is crippling.
people don’t get that so i feel her.
she didn’t know what was right around the corner.
blessings never sets up like rain.
it happens and can change your life for the better.
plus she stood out more than those vixens in that group.
too bad she couldn’t see that.
you never can when you are distracted fighting your demons.
i hope she is at peace now.
lowkey: i have a feeling many people on instagram,
including the top entertainers right now,
are feeling like this.
you never know whats happening in someone’s “happy” life.
you only really know when they decide to check out early.
