The international singer and former ‘Glee’ star reportedly tried to commit suicide because of her dwindling finances, her grandmother revealed in a shocking new interview.

Charice’s Suicide Attempt — Reportedly Attempted Suicide Over Financial Troubles
The singer reportedly cut her wrists during her alleged suicide attempt, Charice’s grandmother said in an interview with Showbiz Police. So scary!
It’s unclear when this reported attempt happened. There have been multiple reports about the singer’s money struggles in the past, but Charice has denied the claims and even showed off a brand new luxury car that she says she paid for with cash, according to Radar Online.
The most important thing is that Charice is safe and healthy. If this report of a suicide attempt is true, we hope she will be able to work through her issues and come out stronger than ever.
Charice Comes Out As Gay
Charice has definitely been through a lot this year. The singer officially came out as gay on June 2 in her homeland of the Philippines while on “The Buzz,” a Filipino television show hosted by Boy Abunda.
“Opo, tomboy po ako,” Charice told Boy — which means, “Yes, I’m a lesbian” — when he asked if the rumors about her sexuality were true.
“Now I feel free,” Charice said in her native language.
