Dalton Harris' fans were concerned after The X Factor winner took to Twitter to say he was going through a rough time and contemplating suicide.

On Oct. 14, Harris tweeted that he was on a dark road of despair after breaking up with his lover.

"I had a deep realization last night," tweeted Harris. "The only reason I didn't take my life today is because I spoke with GOD and I decided to make the biggest change [I] will ever make in my life. I want to live my life not running away from pain inflicted on me or the pain I inflict on anyone."

He continued: "I want to be happy and truly smile. I ended a relationship that was the best thing that happened to me and that taught me so many things. Taught me that I am valuable and that I matter and deserve love. Thank you Ayose. I will love you forever."

Fans speculated that Ayose may be a man. The 26-year-old Capricorn grew up in a one-room shack in Jamaica with his single mom, who didn't accept her son's lifestyle.

Harris, who never knew his dad, left home at age 15. He performed dancehall and reggae music in juke joints.

He released many tracks including "I'm Numb", "Watch Over Me" and "That Wonderful Sound" in Jamaica in 2015.

After moving to England, Harris auditioned for season 15 of The X Factor UK. Harris' cover of Elton John's "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word" moved judge Ayda Field to tears.

His winning single was "The Power of Love", performed as a duet with James Arthur, who won The X Factor in 2012.
