Mexican telenovela star Christian Chavez is admitting that he did attempt suicide last week when he posted several graphic and disturbing pictures on Twitter.
The photos of the former RBD band member included shots of his wrists slashed and one of him with his eyes closed with a bottle of alcohol near his head.
Many thought it was a cruel joke that he was playing on his 600,000 followers.
But in a YouTube video that Christian released on Thursday, he said in Spanish he thought it was “important to clarify the images … Yes they were real.”
He went on to say, “I know that I’m not alone, that a lot of young people experience the same thing.’
He added with “the love of my family, my fans and God, I will move forward.” We understand that Christian is now in Mexico with his family and hopefully is getting the help he needs.
RumorFix would encourage anyone who is contemplating suicide to reach out to the Trevor Project for help.
