A shockwave surged through timelines when rapper Freddy E allegedly took his own life before posting a series of chilling tweets leading up to it.
Female MC Honey Cocaine, a friend of Freddy's, not only mourned his death but had to fend off accusations on Twitter that she was the cause. "What they don't understand is that we were just friends. Blogs are saying that I was his ex-girlfriend and he did what he did because of a failed relationship. That has nothing to do with anything. I need people to understand that it was just a friendship," Honey Cocaine told MTV News exclusively.
Freddy E, a poet and comedian who showcased his work on his JERKTV YouTube channel, sent out dark messages before the suicide. "If there's a God then He's calling me back home. This barrel never felt so good next to my dome. It's cold & I'd rather die than live alone," he wrote. "It's... all... bad... y'all. *puts finger around trigger*"
Honey, who is signed to Tyga, says she wasn't aware of the news till she checked her timeline. "He was going through things and sometimes, you know, people can't handle it. If I could've done something, I would've done something but I had no idea," she said.
"Everyone is fighting their own battles. We're all soldiers. Some of our soldiers turn to angels, and some of us turn to veterans," she said of her lost friend. "And he was one who turned into an angel... There's more to what's under the surface."
