CHICAGO — Alarming messages sent from Chicago rapper Cupcakke's social media accounts Monday night have sparked a flurry of tweets from worried musicians, friends and fans.

Less than an hour later, the 21-year-old's Instagram account shared a screenshot of the tweet with the caption, "Thank you for everything y'all have done for me. I really appreciate it."
According to one friend, comedian Elijah Daniel, Chicago police conducted a wellness check on Cupcakke, whose legal name is Elizabeth Harris.
"Police not able to give me anymore details other than Elizabeth is OKAY and at the hospital," he tweeted about 2 a.m. EST Tuesday.
