Azealia Banks Miscarriage: Rapper Asks For Advice After Losing Baby
Azealia Banks announced on Tuesday that she suffered a miscarriage. In her candid Facebook post, she asks for advice for dealing with the tragedy.
Prior to her unexpected admission this morning, Banks never discussed being pregnant, though she did briefly mention that she “went to the ER last night” and would be “fine.” But she went on to reveal, “So I’ve just had a really major life event happen and I want to talk about it because this wouldn’t be an Azealia Banks page without loads of oversharing right? Anywho, I’ve just had a miscarriage and am pretty taken aback by it all and really confused and in shock and guilty and a bit depressed and like a failure and and [sic] very ashamed.”
The rapper continued, “Has anyone else had this same experience who cares to share some words of wisdom or words of anything regarding this topic. The self-loathing bit is a real struggle for me at the moment so share any words here. They will be greatly appreciated.”
Banks did not indicate how far long she was in the pregnancy, or share who was the baby’s father. The confession actually came a few hours after she posted, and then deleted, messages slamming nemesis Nicki Minaj. The timing led one commenter to now write, “From a Nicki Minaj callout to a miscarriage… Suspicious.” Banks replied, “Do you want to see a picture of the mess?”
Following that, the performer went on to write additional posts on the subject. “I feel really stupid because I think I’m so big and bad an in control and In this situation I’m so powerless and when I first saw the embryo I felt this full spirit around me and was looking down at this little bean in horror/amazement and now I just can’t NOT have an awareness of this person and wont stop feeling like any and everything I’ve ever done in my life or want to do is pointless,” she said.
Banks also expressed, “HOPEFULLY the tabloids don’t get tacky about this Azealia Banks headline. I’ve had a real rough 2016. I honestly need a break from the public crucifixions.” The music star has been accused in the past of lying about a number of things, but one would hope she would not lie about a miscarriage.
