It's so sad what money can make people do.

G.R.L. singer Simone Battle tragically committed suicide a few months ago, and some speculated it was because of money.

At the time, Simone only had a few thousand dollars in her bank account, but she had a lot more on the way.

Due to contracts with Sony, Coca-Cola, and other companies, Simone's family could stand to inherit a large sum of her money, but there's a catch.

Simone's mother Donna Morgan has to be officially named the administrator of Simone's estate first. Her application is currently pending.

But it just goes to show that problems are only temporary, and sometimes a solution is right around the corner. So sad.

G.R.L.'s Simone Battle Was Reportedly Struggling With Financial Issues, Causing Her To Fall Into Depression

simone battle depression over financial struggles

This just gets more and more heartbreaking.

After G.R.L. singer Simone Battle took her life that fateful Friday, her friends and family revealed to law enforcement she had been dealing with financial struggles before she committed suicide.

While her family wasn't exactly specific with the details, it appears as if they believed she was depressed over money issues.

She must've hid her feelings pretty well since her dad admitted he didn't realize something was wrong with his daughter.

Simone's family didn't quite understand how she had issues since she was part of a successful group, but others close to the singer said she was also frustrated with the fact that she hadn't quite made it in the U.S. just yet.

Whatever the situation may be, this whole ordeal is just disheartening.

simone battle father didnt sense anything wrong

This makes everything even sadder!

G.R.L. singer Simone Battle allegedly killed herself on Friday morning, leaving her friends and family stunned.

Including her father, Anthony Battle, who texted with the 25-year-old singer the night before her death, along with several other friends. None of them could tell that anything was wrong.

In fact, Anthony said that Simone was excited about where things were going after her group released a song with Pitbull this year!

He also added that, "It's possible she may have had an invisible disability,” but that his daughter never seemed depressed.

Another fact that has come out is that Simone’s boyfriend is the person who found her, and no foul play is suspected; the autopsy is being conducted today.

This is all such a sad situation, and just goes to show you never know what someone is dealing with.
