Oh my goodness! Boxer Adrien Broner put his family and friends through the scare of a lifetime Oct. 12 when he started posting to his suicidal threats to his social media. Click through for an update on how he’s doing after going to such dark place.
This is just so sad. Professional boxer Adrien Broner, 27, put out a terrifying warning on his social media that he was planning to take his own life at 3pm on Oct. 12. In his first Instagram post he said “Change starts today,” which could have meant anything, until he and followed it up with an absolutely terrifying message that said, “3pm I’m doing it. I’m sorry to my family and friends but I don’t want to be here no more this s**t too much” (sic). How heartbreaking!
He then backed up his threat by posting a photo of a pistol on the console of his car with the caption, “I’m going home. Love y’all” and added to the fears that he really was counting down to the end of his life with another message that read “25 minutes.” By this point he was trending high on Twitter and all of his fans were completely freaked out that he was really going to kill himself!
Fortunately according to TMZ, his finacee Arie Nicole went on Snapchat and said “Adrien is okay” before the deadly deadline came. They also said that he’s been taking phone calls from close friends who are now convinced he’s in a better place and not going to kill himself. Police in his hometown of Cincinnati also said that they made contract with Adrien and he’s okay, thank goodness!
Ever since the terrifying scare, Adrien’s Instagram account has been deleted, erasing all of his missives even though they were captured by several sites. We really hope Adrien is getting help with whatever it is he is going through to have made him go to such a dark place.
