“I would like to clarify a rumour spreading around social media about me attempting suicide. Alhamdulillah, there is no truth to any of this, I had simply been admitted to the hospital due to a bad case of food poisoning and I am fine now,” she wrote.
She further expressed her gratitude for everyone’s concern and love. “I would like to thank everyone who has been calling or messaging me for their love, concern and wishes – I am humbled by the love,” she added.
In the end, she also brought the attention towards mental health, and requested everyone to refrain from spreading rumours about such a grave issue.
“I would also like to request everyone to not spread news about anyone as mental health and death are not topics of jokes and no one needs to be put through this kind of trauma simply because you are misinformed. Just think about the other person before you post such news and status updates,” she wrote.
Aly’s post was met with love and well wishes from all her fans, and encouraged many to spread awareness about mental health in a thoughtful and considerate manner.
