“I understand how hopeless and overwhelmed with negativity we can sometimes feel,” Iggy, who’s recently gotten candid about her own emotional turmoil and mental health struggles told her. “I hope you’ll take some time with those that really know YOU best; then when you’re ready come back stronger than ever!” she wrote.

“You are one of the most unique, genuine and loving people I have ever met in this industry,” Charli wrote in part. “You are such a HUGE inspiration so many kids, to so many artists, to me. Whenever you walk into a room or onto a stage you exude so much LOVE and the energy in the room turns electric.”
