In her final post to Instagram just a day before her passing, the singer mourned the anniversary of losing her unborn child through an emotional video.

“I’ve been crying all day, so I’m sorry,” she said in the video broadcasted to her 35,000 followers. “But around this time last year, I lost my child and I would like to do something in remembrance of her, preferably spread some flowers at a beach and spend the day just mourning.”

The “not ok but its ok” artist wrote that she was on heavy medication to help her “avoid any psychosis from my CPTSD.”

“Not only have I been mourning my child, I have recently found out my fertility has been affected by growing up with a severe eating disorder,” she continued. “I recommend to really think about what you’re doing to yourself because I may never be able to have a full term pregnancy or have a child of my own due to the way I treated my body.”
