Actress Princess Shyngle has finally broken her silence following reports she had been hospitalised after an alleged suicide attempt in Lagos.
The Ghana-based Gambian actress, as was earlier reported, had allegedly been rushed to the Vedic Life care Hospital in Lekki by her neighbour after it was discovered that she had taken an overdose of a medication and drank bleach in an attempt to end her life.
But the reports appear to be false as the actress has come out to debunk the said rumours.
Addressing the matter concisely, the 27-year-old stated that “I had a relapse and a nervous breakdown which landed me in the hospital. I never took anything,” shooting down reports suggesting she consumed drugs to end her own life.
Princess Shyngle also revealed she is at a better place now and will in due course speak more about the issue. Portions of a statement she put up on social media read, “I am at a better place now and at the right time I will address and talk more about depression.”
The actress has in the past opened up about being suicidal indicating that whenever she is faced with disappointments, the first thought that comes to mind is to end her own life.
“I cannot take disappointments. When I want something or I am looking for something and things do not work out well, the next thought that comes to mind is to commit suicide,” she stated in an interview with a Ghanaian-based newspaper in August 2017.
She also revealed that she’s been battling with such thoughts for the past 19 years adding that it all started after a near death experience her father lived through.
‘’It started when I was about 18 years or so. I almost lost my dad through a fire outbreak and just the thought alone made me want to kill myself. I couldn’t see myself living my life without him and thought the best thing was to go with him,” she told our Correspondent.
