She added, "It's like when you just don't have control over [your] emotions, your thoughts, you feel completely and utterly out of control. I don't even think at that particular time I understood what I was going through."
In a heartfelt tweet to Pete Davidson she encouraged him to "hang in there."

“I have to live up to be this person, and I don’t feel like that. It’s like doing a comedy but you’re miserable. It’s like my life was like this show and I was always supposed to be on, but when the show was over I was completely miserable," he shared.
He added, “I’m just trying to keep it together, because, Kid Cudi, everybody’s hero, this person that you look up to. I didn’t want to let anybody down.”
