Cardi B had some of her more devoted fans worried about her mental health this week after revealing she wanted to end her life — but she’s now put their minds at ease.
In an Instagram Live story dated Thursday (October 19), the “Bodak Yellow” rapper addressed some concerns that some fans had after she tweeted what appeared to be a thought of suicidal ideation.
“When I burst, I’m very outspoken,” she said to her fans. “When I get into one of my bad moments, I will literally curse everybody out, and I’ll be fuckin’ like, ‘I want you to die. Bitch, I wanna die. I don’t give a fuck!’ Because that’s just how I’ll be feeling in the moment.”
She continued: “I was just very overwhelmed yesterday. I was very sad. And, I don’t know — I feel like I was just having such a good week, and then, when I got home, and I started paying attention to so much shit that people were saying about me, and all the funny shit about me … I just started getting upset about it.”

Cardi B clashed with a few Twitter trolls early Wednesday morning (October 18), which resulted in her admitting to having suicidal thoughts.
After one user joked about her being “the only Mexican I know that don’t work hard,” Cardi — whose father is Dominican and mother is a Trinidadian of African and Spanish descent — fired back by writing: “Hope you and ur mom die.”
Another fan chimed in and scolded Cardi for wishing death on others, warning her that karma could “come back on you.”
The Bronx native clapped back with: “IDGAF Fuck y’all … y’all can call me Mexican, bring me down and hurt my feelings talk shit about everything that’s why I don’t release music.”
She then hinted at wanting to end it all by writing: “I just want to put a bullet in my head.”
Despite deleting her posts, the mother of two’s tweets still went viral on social media and prompted her sister, Hennessy Carolina, to come to her defense.
“Anybody that dont like my sister can suck [a dick],” she wrote in The Neighborhood Talk‘s Instagram comment section.
