CONTROVERSY: Freddy E and Honey Cocaine
RISING HIP-HOP star Honey Cocaine has hit back at reports that she was the reason behind internet sensation Freddy E's suicide, after it was speculated that he took his own life following their alleged break-up.
The young rapper said that she was "just friends" with the late 22-year-old, who committed fatally shot himself last week Saturday (Jan 5) following a series of tweets threatening to take his own life, before denying being the reason behind the "heartbreak" he spoke of before his death.
While speaking to MTV US Honey said: "What they don't understand is that we were friends, 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.
"I just want people to know that we were just friends, and we did everything for each other as friends."
"I think he was just going through a lot, and that's his personal business. I'm not going to speak about what he was going through, but as his friend, I did communicate with him often," she explained.
"I just feel like he couldn't handle his problems anymore, and this is someone who had real, deep issues within him, and I didn't know, I guess his friends didn't know. and I guess he made himself seem happy, but he was really just holding everything inside."
Freddy E, real name Frederick Eugene Buhl, left thousands stunned when he "live tweeted" what was later revealed as a suicide note.
In one of the shock tweets he wrote: "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."
"It's...all...bad...ya'll *puts finger around trigger*", he added.
His lasts few posts explained that he loved his parents before ending: "I'm sorry."
