After a recent interview with local news outlet Astro Gempak, reports that Malaysian singer/actress Elizabeth Tan allegedly went into serious depression became widely discussed online.
It was reported on multiple sites that a recent break-up from a serious relationship caused her to become extremely devastated to the point of being suicidal.
However, in the actual interview, which coincided with the launch of her new single “Darling” on Tuesday, the 23-year-old discussed various personal problems which had put a lot of pressure on her, including family, religious and relationship issues.
According to Elle, the talented celebrity took to Facebook to address the issue, explaining that her short-lived relationship was not the only reason she broke down.
“I want to correct something because I’ve just found out that there were a few headlines published today that said I had been depressed to the point of suicide after a failed relationship […] The headlines are not true so I hope nobody misunderstands,” Tan wrote, as translated by Elle from Malaysian.
“It’s true I’ve been a bit depressed and under pressure before this, which is why I took a short break early this year but it’s not because I broke up. I have been going through some things over the past three years that I’ve kept to myself and the relationship issue triggered the rest of it,” she added.
“But don’t worry, I’m a lot better now. Time really does heal. More importantly, is that I seriously learned a lot from all the bad and even good experiences. Thank you all so much for all the support.”
