Today (Mar. 4), R&B singer Jhene Aiko shared a series of cryptic posts on Instagram, which prompted her fans to send her a myriad of well wishes.
First, the singer shared a photograph of what looks like a Lisa Frank cat with angel wings and a graphic caption that read, “don’t cry for me. I’m already dead.”
The “Sativa” singer then shared a photograph of herself sitting on her knees in bed wearing a matching light pink lace panty and bra set with a caption that read, “bye.”
Following that post, Aiko shared a photograph of what looked like a Lisa Frank tiger with the graphic caption, “My tears would drown the world as my inner fire would reduce it to ashes.”
The singer has also turned off her Instagram comments.
This comes a week after Aiko’s ex-boyfriend Big Sean was spotted at a Los Angeles recording studio with his ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande. Sean and Grande broke up in October 2015, after eight months of dating.
While Sean was dating Aiko in Mar. 2018, rumors surfaced that he had a fling with singer Nicole Scherzinger, but both Aiko and Sean denied the claims.
When The Shade Room posted about Aiko’s posts many fans commented with concern and well wishes.
Instagram user @4ever_favored_ wrote, “Mental health awareness should be taken seriously.” Rapper Joe Budden chimed in and wrote, “1. I hope she’s well. 2. Her next project bout to be so fire.”
Instagram user @iamshanirose wrote, “No diss but this better not be about Sean! She’s beautiful and her talent is unremarkable. Yea it’s ok to be sad but she’s such a bigger force. Hold your head up queen!”
