This poor woman can't catch a break. She's dealt with mental health issues and grief in recent years, what seems more than any other time (publicly) in her life. Now this? My first reaction was a fear that she will do something horrible to herself.

It's a hell of thing to go through. I've never been a fan of her music, but I do feel for her after all she's been through with her own terrible childhood and mental health problems. I hope she has a good support system.

He didn't go missing under her care. He was admitted to a hospital under suicide watch. I suppose he escaped? She's angry right now.

She has now been hospitalized after saying she was going to kill herself. She also claims treatment will only put off temporarily her plans.

She's got self hatred and demons brought on by abuse in her past for sure. I only hope she finds the strength and courage to get through this. She might not have any fight left in her. She's strong but only human. Nobody should outlive their own children.
