Rapper CupcakKe was hospitalized after posting an alarming tweet on Monday, January 7, the Chicago Police Department confirms to Us Weekly.

“Officers responded to calls from several of Elizabeth Harris’ close friends and [she] was taken to the hospital for a mental evaluation, not for injuries,” a police spokesperson tells Us, using the 21-year-old’s real name.

CupcakKe tweeted just before 8 p.m. on Monday that she was “about to commit suicide.” She then shared a screenshot of her tweet on her Instagram page alongside the caption, “Thank you for everything y’all have done for me I really appreciate it.”

Comedian Elijah Daniel was among the first to reach out to the Chicago native, who is known for her hyper-sexualized lyrics. “Anyone who knows elizabeth please please please check on her my texts to her sent green idk if her phone is off but if you have her address please check on her ???????” he tweeted.

Daniel, 24, then wrote that he “tried every number” that he has for CupcakKe, including her management team, agents, mother and mutual friends. He later confirmed that police conducted a “wellness check” and transported the MC to the hospital.

“I’ve never felt so relieved and sad at the same time, @CupcakKe_rapper i love you more than you’ll ever know,” he added. “You’re one of the sweetest souls ive ever had the pleasure of knowing, and you’re not leaving us. we won’t let it happen.”
