Scary, deeply concerning times for Adrien Broner.
According to TMZ Sports, the boxer's fiancée/baby mama, Arie Nicole, aka Miss Louiebags, took to her Snapchat on Wednesday afternoon to let fans know that "Adrien is okay" after he posted concerning suicidal thoughts on his Instagram account earlier in the day.
Just before noon Wednesday, Broner took to his IG and intimated that he was ready to take his own life at 3 p.m.
About an hour later, that escalated into another post — this one showing a gun resting on the center console of his car with a caption reading, "I'm going home I love y'all."
He even counted down the time as 3 o'clock grew closer.
Some of the boxer's fans begged Broner to reconsider his vow and reach out for help, while others disgustingly dared him to commit suicide.
But the suicide attempt was eventually quelled, as Nicole claimed, as reported by TMZ.
The celebrity website additionally reported that his friends called the police out of deep concern for the boxer's mental state.
Just last month, felony assault and aggravated robbery charges against Broner stemming from an Ohio bowling alley incident were dropped.
There's no immediate word as to what has been bothering Broner, 27, to the point that he would consider taking his own life.
His suicidal thoughts come on the heels of Kid Cudi checking into rehab last week for "depression and suicidal urges."
Like Cudi, we hope Broner can get himself the proper mental health help to get in a better state of mind.
