Rapper Chipmunk contemplates suicide


British rapper Chipmunk has made a very public cry for help via Twitter.

The 18-year-old, who topped the singles chart last month with Oopsie Daisy, posted a series of disturbing messages on the social media website claiming he wanted to end his life.

Tweeting from his account – @ChipmunkArtist, he wrote: “I wanna die, he later asked, “Is suicide easy?”

The young star has since cancelled all upcoming promotional apperances “too get some much needed time off.” His spokesman added: “He has been working incredibly hard, which has taken its toll.”

Chipmunk, real name Jamal Noel Fyffe is thought to be taking time out at his family home in North London. The latest post from his account says: “This has been the most difficult time for me…But I will get through it! Believe none of what you hear…And half of what you see!”

Get well soon.
