CupcakKe Hospitalized Following Suicidal Tweet
Twenty-one-year-old Chicago rapper CupcakKe (real name Elizabeth Eden Harris) is reportedly in hospital following a suicidal tweet posted last night (January 7).
 
She bluntly wrote, "im about to commit suicide," which prompted a wellness check by Chicago police.
 
According to her friend Elijah Daniel, who was sharing updates on Twitter throughout the night, Harris was taken to hospital and eventually deemed "okay" by police.

UPDATE (1/8, 7 p.m. EST): CupcakKe has now issued a statement following the incident. You can read that directly below. See Daniel's account of the night below.
 
Cupcakke's worrisome tweet also generated a flood of support from friends, fans and other musicians.
 
See some of those responses below.
 
CupcakKe released Ephorize last year, earning a spot on Exclaim!'s Top 10 Hip-Hop Albums of 2018. She then followed that up with Eden, which was released in November.
