Ashley first retweeted the message, “She gone leave mentally before she leave physically.” She then added she was “exhausted” of “fighting the same battle” and would “gracefully bow out.”
“Sometimes I think people won’t be happy until I leave bar and disappear,” she wrote. “And sometimes I wonder if people wish to humiliate me and talk down on me so bad that I just say f**k it and end my whole life.”
Ashley seemingly backtracked and wrote, “This won’t be the story of the girl who folded under pressure. This will be the story of a women, who held her head high through all the obstacles facing her, and has came out stronger.” She also said she had “exciting stuff coming up.”
However, just hours later, Ashley continued with the threats, writing, “But when I blow my f*****g brains out, everyones gonna cry . Everyone’s gonna have wished me the best . Everyone’s gonna wanna put me on their shirt come to my funeral . Nah, just keep that same energy. The energy that drew me to suicide in the first place.”
Ashley recently got back with her baby daddy, Bariki Smith, but has a volatile relationship with his mother Shen. Upon seeing Ashley’s tweets, Shen took to her Facebook page and accused Ashley of “crying wolf” and being “pure evil.”
Ashley responded to the tweets and wrote, “So I’m out. All the way. Good luck in life.”
