Boxer Adrien Broner scared his friends and family, when he posted a series of messages on social media alluding to being suicidal.
According to TMZ Sports, one of Broner’s close friends reached out to police after he posted a cryptic message on Instagram at around 12 p.m. that said, “3PM I’m doing it I’m sorry to my family and friends but I don’t want to be here no more this sh*t too much.”
Broner followed an hour later with another Instagram post that featured a photo of a gun and the words, “I’m going home I love y’all.” Then another followed saying “25 minutes”.
Shortly after 3 p.m. on Wednesday (Oct. 12), Broner’s fiancée Arie Nicole posted on Snapchat that the boxer is okay.
The Cincinnati Police Department also took to Twitter to reveal that they were able to touch base with Broner to check on his well-being:
