Rumors are circulating on social media that a One Direction fan has tragically taken her own life after leaving a note thanking Harry Styles for making her life better. Unreality TV reports that One Direction fan accounts are circulating a copy of a suicide note written by a Harry Styles fan known as “Debbie.”
Apparently, Debbie met Harry Styles recently, and in her note, she left a message saying, “Please thank Harry Styles from One Direction for making life a little bit better during the past few weeks.”
The Hot Hits reports that the young girl, Debrina, was a big fan of One Direction and Harry Styles, and in what makes for very tough viewing, if you scroll down her Twitter timeline, she also suffered from depression and self-harm. Also according to that timeline, Debrina, or Debbie, committed suicide this month, leaving a note that specified it be posted to her Twitter and Tumblr account, which was done by one of her friends.
In her suicide note, Debbie wrote, “To whoever finds this… I want you to go on my Tumblr blog and post this note, along with the date you found this. If you find this, it means I am dead.”
In a heart-wrenching paragraph that will undoubtedly cause unbearable pain to her family, Debbie wrote, “I am not sorry Mom or Dad,” before adding the names of four of her friends to whom she stated she was “sorry”, adding, “The only four people on this planet who managed to make my life a little bit better.”
This is not the first time that Harry Styles or One Direction have been linked with fan suicides. The Huffington Post reported back in 2013 that rumors suggested up to 42 fans had committed suicide after being upset about how a television documentary Crazy About One Direction portrayed One Directions fans. The program prompted outrage among the One Direction fan community, who claimed they’d been depicted as “insane” and made to look like “psychos.” Soon after the show aired, #RIPLarryShippers began trending. Metro reported that these rumors were believed to be false. As yet, there has been no official confirmation that this latest rumor is true. Harry Styles has made no comment, and it is unclear whether or not he is aware of this rumor.
In other One Direction news, the Mirror reports that Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan have joined Harry Styles in Los Angeles for final rehearsals before the band head out on their latest world tour, which kicks off in Australia on February 7. The band have reportedly traveled separately for security reasons. It is not clear whether or not Zayn Malik has joined Harry Styles and Co. yet.
