Shocked! On New Year’s Day, Brandy Revealed A Dark Past & Who Saved Her Life

Posted On : January 3, 2017

Lifestyles of the rich and famous always seem attractive to those who don’t live and exist in the limelight. But, many celebrities will definitely admit it’s not all of what it seems. Apparently, Brandy is one of those people. Despite having a successful music and acting career with more than 20 years in the entertainment industry, Brandy’s faced a daunting problem that many people battle on a daily basis.


Thoughts of Suicide:

For those who don’t know, the “Always Doesn’t Count” singer was suicidal during a troubling, dark period in her life. On Jan 1, Brandy took to Instagram with a detailed post about her little-known past. She explained how the challenging time affected her life.

The love in me is something I can’t control or explain….. I can feel every wave at 100%…. A very sensitive and humble soul that fights to stay liberated. I’ve been lost, deep in bondage, suicidal, and didn’t know how to call on the Most High because I didn’t believe I had the right words to be heard. I’m here now more certain than I have ever been and I have arrived at a true understanding of my purpose, worth, and an unconditional love and compassion for myself. A true God becoming talent that I will only use for my contribution in healing all of myself and all of the world. #2017 until my demise, I will give my all to everyone in all that I do!! I’m a vessel that has gone through fire to gain my wings and once was a caged bird that #Sang – Thank you to all that have understood me and prayed for me in my darkest times and to all that I have ever hurt in my life, I felt the same hurt while hurting you. I’m very remorseful and I’m truly sorry for behavior that didn’t reflect my true nature, which is love. We are all Gods dream, so let’s allow God to take it from here… #ISurrenderAll #ForeverNow #HappyNewYear @syraiiman you saved me angel. I love you more than love💡#Forgiveness

Light At the End of the Tunnel:

But, despite the ups and downs, Brandy managed to prevail. Although she admitted it wasn’t easy to push forward during the hard times, there’s one person she credits, in addition to God, for saving her life. That person is none other than her 14-year-old daughter, Sy’rai Iman Smith.

It looks like the apple definitely didn’t fall far from the tree. Sy’rai is just as talented as her mother. For those who don’t know, Sy’rai has turned quite a few heads with her beautiful voice. There have been a few times when videos of Sy’rai singing have circulated on social media.
