(AllHipHop News) It was a wild weekend for CupcakKe. The Chicago-bred Hip Hop artist was trending on Twitter after she began sub-tweeting about Popstar couple Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes.
"Your 'fav' that use to be in that lil pop group is racist but WBK," posted CupcakKe on Saturday, referring to former Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello. "The one that’s dating the fine gay guy."
CupcakKe later added, "Yes sis …. I f*cked your man … & I did it on purpose since your racist ???? & that’s the TEA‼️ let’s tell the world become I grab the receipts."
The tweets quickly spread with fans wondering if the 22-year-old was exposing the truth or trolling for attention. CupcakKe took to Instagram Live to address her questionable behavior on Twitter.
"Recently, the past night and today, I just been sporadic and it's because I wanted to get as much attention as possible to let y'all know that I will no longer be doing music. And all of my music will be coming off of every platform," said CupcakKe.
She continued, "I decided to give up, or wouldn't say give up, I would say let go of music because I feel as though I'm corrupting the youth." The Ephorize album creator built a following from sexually-explicit songs such as "Best D*ck Sucker," "Cumshot," and "Old Town Hoe." She also presented records promoting LGBT rights and female empowerment.
In her IG Live broadcast, CupcakKe stated that she has a gambling addiction and lost $700,000 in a casino in 2018. Earlier this year, the artist born Elizabeth Eden Harris was hospitalized for suicidal thoughts and depression. Her Twitter and Instagram accounts have been deleted.
