G.R.L. Singer Simone Battle's Money Troubles Were About To Be Solved

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadG.R.L.

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

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadG.R.L.

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.

EXCLUSIVE! G.R.L.'s Performance & Interview For Us Shows A Happy Simone — We Had No Idea She Was Struggling

We are still so shocked and saddened by the loss of so gifted a performer as Simone Battle.

The G.R.L. member tragically took her own life last week, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner's Department.

Before she committed suicide, she and the rest of G.R.L. performed an EXCLUSIVE rendition of Show Me What You Got for us.

In both the song and the game of "Most Likely To" that we played with this girl group, we got a glimpse of her personality, which seemed upbeat and happy.

Her father also revealed that he never sensed that anything was wrong with Simone.

While you remember this late singer, ch-ch-check out these five talented ladies sing (above) and play the game (below)!!!
