Nick Cannon Suggests He Contemplated Taking His Own Life As He Mourns Friend Who Committed Suicide

Continued prayers are going up for entertainer Nick Cannon! 

The rapper turned TV personality and mogul hinted that he thought about taking his own life as he mourned one friend who tragically succeeded.

He shared a photo of him and rapper Ryan Bowers, who reportedly committed suicide.

Nick Cannon wrote Saturday (July 18th),

“Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse… 2020 is definitely the most f*cked up year I’ve ever witnessed! After waking up & barely rising from my own dark contemplation of continuing my physical existence on this planet, this powerful warrior actually had the balls to do it.”

He added that last year, Ryan Bowers nearly lost his life by the hands of police officers.

“Just over a year ago a San Diego Police Officer rushed in his home and unjustifiably shot him placing him in a coma for months. I stood by his bedside and promised him that if he made it out & fought the good fight that I would make his dream come true and put his album out and share his story with the world. He fought and fought, he woke up, they stitched him up, he learned to walk and talk again and within months we were back in the studio recording. Even through his strength he would whisper to me that “Everything Still Hurts”.”

He ended his message with,

“Proved to so many that you could do it and that you were Super Human! The greatest comeback I ever saw!! We almost made it little bro! But I guess even flying Super Heros have to land eventually. But I am certain that your energy will never die and your Spirit is eternal, so I ask you still to forgive me for letting you down Warrior. I can’t help but think if I wasnt so engulfed in my own bullsh*t I could’ve been there for you when you finally took your life after several attempts… F*ck this place!! #CantWin#ForLosing?

Nick Cannon’s concerning message comes after a similar tweet he shared amid the backlash he’s received following his controversial comments, which were said to be antisemitic.

While he issued an apology to the Jewish community, he said his apology caused his own community to call him a “sellout.” He tweeted,

“I hurt an entire community and it pained me to my core, I thought it couldn’t get any worse. Then I watched my own community turn on me and call me a sell-out for apologizing. Goodnight. Enjoy Earth… Y’all can have this planet. I’m out!”

Continued prayers for Nick Cannon!
