FANS are worried about rapper Rico Nasty after she posted troubling tweets Saturday.
In the now-deleted messages, the 24-year-old, whose real name is Maria-Cecilia Simone Kelly, spoke about how she was crying herself to sleep “every night” on her tour bus.
“I dead ass need at least two hours out of each day. To just cry,” Rico wrote to her nearly 800,000 followers.
Then Rico’s tweets became extremely concerning when she wrote: “I wish I was dead just as much as y’all do trust me,” she continued. “Y’all win.”
The artist has reportedly been struggling as the opener for Playboi Carti’s King Vamp Tour. Videos online show Carti’s fans booing Kelly during her set.
Rico’s fans posted messages supporting her while also calling out Playboi Carti, real name Jordon Terrell Carter, for not making a statement on his fans’ treatment of Rico.
One fan wrote: “your fans love you mama. but I know that other peoples [sic] negative words drown the positive out. I hope you get the love you deserve and feel better.”
Another wrote: “Rico Nasty deserves better and Playboi Carti needs to speak up, pretty embarrassing this is all happening on HIS tour”
Rico previously called out Carti’s fans after she was booed during a show at the Forum in Los Angeles. Videos show Rico speaking to the crowd as the audience began chanting for Carti instead.
“This is what the f*** we gon’ do for you disrespectful motherf****** out there,” she said. “B****, we gon’ sit in the motherf*****’ silence!”
She took to Twitter, calling the crowd “anti-Black”.
“Weak ass little boys,” she wrote. “Ugh. Get me out of here.”
The King Vamp Tour is scheduled to continue through December 23 in Atlanta.
Rico also released a music video for her new single, Money featuring Flo Milli.
