UPDATE: CupcakKe tweeted a new message, saying “sorry that I did it public last night but I’m ok.”

CupcakKe is reportedly in the hospital and safe after posting a suicidal tweet and Instagram. She first tweeted “im about to commit suicide” and added on Instagram, “Thank you for everything y’all have done for me I really appreciate it.”

As The FADER points out, her friend Elijah Daniel tweeted that Chicago police confirmed her whereabouts and that she is okay, writing “Chicago Police got to Elizabeth’s place and she has been taken to a hospital. I don’t have any further information beyond that, but will update when i do.” He soon added, “Police not able to give me anymore details other than Elizabeth is OKAY and at the hospital.” Update: the BBC also confirmed with Chicago police that CupcakKe is safe.

This story is still developing and we’ll let you know if we hear more, but we’re glad to hear CupcakKe is okay.
