One article implies suicide, she tried once before. She had some demons, worse than others, we all do, another reason to go talk to someone before you do something drastic to yourself.

She has a phenomenal song with Jam & Spoon called "Mirror Lover"... I don't think it was ever released in the States, but you should be able to find it on places like Pandora or Youtube.
