According to GlobalGrind, rapper Freddy E, who made a name for himself on his YouTube Channel “Jerk TV,” took his life after an online exchange with his girlfriend, rapper Honey Cocaine. He was 22 years old.
“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,” he wrote last night. He followed that cryptic message with a series of apologies to his parents before writing, “God please forgive me. I’m sorry.”

There has been no official confirmation of his death but his girlfriend Honey Cocaine has wished him condolences on Twitter.
She has also come under attack by fans for things she said to him before he died. She admits to having said some things in jest, but nothing she thinks would make him kill himself.
“I said some foolish things cause I thought he was joking, he does sh*t like that to me all the time. This is crazy,” she wrote. “Say it’s my fault, threaten me, whatever.. I knew him well enough to know he had other things happening.. I was there for him all the time.”
To say I caused what happened is ignorance.. You know nothing about our friendship or the story, hate me if you feel.. We loved eachother..—
