R&B crooner, Chris Brown, 26, slammed singing newcomer, Kehlani, 22, over a suicide attempt she publicized on the website Instagram. Kehlani made posts on Instagram showing an IV in her arm, with a caption that revealed she tried to kill herself over online claims she cheated on her boyfriend, basketball player, Kyrie Irving, with ex-boyfriend, musician Party Next Door. She was placed on a psychiatric hold. A photo was posted online by Party Next Door revealing him holding Kehlani's tattooed hand in bed, "After all her shenanigans, still got the R&B singer back in my bed."

Brown, skeptical of Kehlani's suicide attempt, posted a scathing series of tweets slamming the incident as a cry for attention and likes on Instagram, "There is no attempting suicide. Stop flexing for the gram. Doing s**t for sympathy so them comments under your pics don't look so bad." Brown further slammed her for cheating on his friend Irving.

Brown's comments and that of others may have gotten to Kehlani, as she has deleted all the posts on her Instagram page, including the item about attempted suicide. Some on social networking showed her sympathy, others did not. After she was released from the psychiatric hold, she returned home and released a statement thanking her supporters.

Ironically, Brown previously posted items on Instagram about being suicidal and wanting to shoot himself in the head, due to the problems in his life that are plaguing him. There have been many people who have attempted suicide and failed. It is an inadvisable thing to do. People who take drug overdoses or poison themselves in other ways, die slow, painful deaths.

Those who commit suicide via a gunshot wound to the head, which is gruesome, leave their families devastated by their deaths and having to bury them with their face looking completely damaged and distorted at the funeral, as they say goodbye. Suicide is not a good idea on so many levels. Don't do it. Suicide is serious and not the answer to anyone's problems.

People contemplating or attempting to commit suicide is an issue that needs to be confronted and treated via medical professionals, with the hope of saving lives. No matter what you are facing in life, just know that with time things can get better. Do not take your life over people or situations you are not looking at in the right context or perspective. Life is precious. Enjoy it.
