One of Adrien Broner's good friends, former middleweight champion Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin, has a heartfelt message he wants to send to the embattled boxer -- God is real and he can help you.
Kid Chocolate -- who like Broner is advised by Al Haymon -- says he was worried about Broner when he saw the disturbing suicidal messages on social media Wednesday.
According to his fiance and several of his friends, Broner is apparently “OK” after posting what appeared to be a series of suicide threats on Instagram Wednesday. The messages have since been erased.
In one Instagram post – which featured an image of white text on a black background -- he wrote, “3PM I’m doing it. I’m sorry to my family and friends but I don’t want to be here no more.” A short time later, he posted a photo of a handgun with the caption, “I’m going home I love y’all.” Then, shortly before 3 p.m., he posted an image similar to the first one, which read, “25 minutes.”
Broner’s girlfriend, Arie Nicole, wrote on Snapchat Wednesday that “Adrien is okay,” while the star’s longtime adviser and close friend, Sam Watson, echoed those words.
“He’s OK, he’s OK,” Watson told The Guardian. “I’m not sure what’s going on but I talked to him yesterday and he was fine. I’m sure he’s OK.”
Quillin says he hasn't reached out to Broner yet because he knows his family comes first -- but wanted to send this message.
"If he do get to see this at any time, God is real and the spiritual battle is real," Kid Chocolate said ... Don’t ever forget that."
"Your kids is important and you got a lot of reasons to live."
"I’m praying for him, and I just want to see the best happen for him."
