Hill is best known as one of the UCLA players detained in China in 2017 on suspicion of shoplifting a pair of Louis Vuitton sunglasses.

Jalen, LiAngelo Ball, and another player were released after then-President Donald Trump intervened on their behalf.

In a video in April 2017, Jalen said he suffered from anxiety and depression after being detained in China.

He said his mental issues led him to quit the team in 2021.

"The head space I was in, it was damaging the team," he said. Jalen reported he felt happier than he ever did in his life after he quit the team.

Jalen's father, George Hill, played basketball at Kansas State University.

NBA YoungBoy is devastated after he was left off DJ Khaled's star-studded upcoming album GOD DID.

YoungBoy Never Broke Again said he is "suffering" in a recent Instagram post.

"I'm suffering with the minutes, s**t sad," he wrote.

"I'm good what I truly want is coming to me," said YoungBoy, who recently signed to Birdman's Cash Money label for a record $60 million.

He continued: "it might be a little minute but it's coming, I always got what I wanted no matter if I had to pray for it, or steal it, I got it."

Months ago, YoungBoy complained that he is being blacklisted in the industry.

"Why black ball me I'm the good guy," he wrote in early 2022. "I was going #1 two weeks straight with a mixtape so they took it down off the charts I don't give a f**k you still can't stop me [sic]."

YoungBoy's troubles stem from his long-running feud with Chicago gangster-turned-rapper Lil Durk (pictured).

Lil Durk is among the few drill rappers invited to collaborate with Khaled on GOD DID.

It seems the music industry is siding with Lil Durk against NBA YoungBoy.

YoungBoy's affiliates Quando Rondo and Lul Timm were involved in the murder of Durk's friend King Von in Atlanta in 2020.

On Tuesday, YoungBoy's crew threw shade at DJ Khaled on Instagram under one of his comments promoting the artists on his album.

"Damn he don't got the goat on there 'lil top' He must not like us too," the comment read, referring to NBA YoungBoy.

The 18 tracks on GOD DID features Drake, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Kodak Black, Future, Gunna, Latto, Lil Baby, Lil Durk, and more.

Phaedra Parks hopes her new book will help others cope with depression and PTSD.

The mom-of-two suffered debilitating depression after she was axed from 'Real Housewives of Atlanta.' Now she hopes to help others with her new book, according to Page Six.

"When I left 'Housewives,' it was a very dark time," she says. "And I went through … depression and a lot of emotions because 'Housewives' can give you PTSD. I think anyone that's been on it for over four to five years will experience some PTSD because it can be very traumatic."

Parks was asked to leave the cast of RHOA after she fell out with cast member and longtime friend Kandi Burruss.

The 48-year-old businesswoman and attorney said she was grateful to have the support of loved ones.

She shared her dark journey in her new self-help book. "So I wanted to write a book for women — men can read it, too — that really gave a part of my testimony of just being an overcomer," she says.

After surviving her bout with depression, Parks recently made her reality TV return on "The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club," alongside Tamra Judge, Taylor Armstrong, Jill Zarin, and other 'Housewives' veterans.

Nick Cannon says he fell victim to "a little vagina" because he was depressed after losing his 5-month-old son Zen to a brain tumor in December 2021.

On Tuesday's episode of the Angela Yee's "Lip Service" podcast, Nick said he was depressed after the loss of his son.

He said his harem of baby mamas felt sorry for him and offered him "a little vagina" to lift his spirits.

"I got depressed with the loss of my son," he said. "The thing is, everybody saw I was so down. So everybody was like, 'Let's just give him a little vagina, and that's gonna cure it all.' I fell victim to it because I was in a weak state."

Nick, 41, said he "started f-king like crazy ... right before Christmas" which defeated his whole purpose of being celibate.

"I was probably celibate for a month and a half strong... I was trying to do it... I was dealing with a lot."

Nick admitted he is expecting multiple babies this year, including his 8th child with Bre Tiesi (right) and his 9th baby with Abby De La Rosa, with whom he already has twin sons.

According to reports, Nick is also expecting babies with ex-girlfriends Lanisha Cole, Jessica White and Alyssa Scott, the mother of his late son Zen.

"If you thought the numbers I put up in 2021 was big, wait until 2022," Nick told Yee. "If you thought it was a lot of kids last year..." he said before trailing off.

Sean Combs reportedly beefed up his security after Freddy P from "Making the Band" said he has thoughts of killing Combs and himself.

In a video posted online, Freddy P, who competed with other aspiring artists to earn a spot in Combs' Da Band in 2002, said Combs ruined his life after breaking up Da Band.

Combs' Making the Band series spawned musical acts O-Town, Da Band, Danity Kane, Day26, and Donnie Klang.

Day26 member Willie Taylor was first to complain about Combs, saying his contracts were "set up for the failure of hungry artists."

Freddy P, who was in Da Band with Sara Stokes, Dylan Dilinjah, Chopper AKA "Young City," Babs, and Ness, shared his experience in a tearful video on Wednesday.

Freddy said Combs broke up Da Band and left him penniless and on the streets. He said he hasn't been able to get a regular job due to his notoriety after Combs forced Da Band to walk across Brooklyn Bridge to get him cheesecake.

"I'm fascinated with death... Shoot me in my face. Do not resuscitate, n****a... Send me to my God," Freddy said after apparently threatening Combs.

Combs has not responded to Freddy P's post.

Rapper Ye, formerly Kanye West, has been officially announced as headliner to replace Travis Scott in the Coachella lineup.

Travis was removed as headliner following the tragedy when 10 people died at his Astroworld Festival in Houston in November.

Variety reports that pop singer Billie Eilish and Swedish House Mafia will headline on Saturday, while Ye headlines Sunday night.

Meanwhile, Ye has been jet-setting around the world before going out on a romantic date with actress Julia Fox. The couple was seen on a date in New York City on Tuesday, before he jetted to Miami solo.

The Coachella music festival has already sold out 125,000 per-day tickets, despite pesky Omicron "cases" surging in America.

The 2020 Coachella was postponed due to Covid-19. It was originally slated to have Travis Scott, Frank Ocean and Rage Against the Machine as headliners.

Meanwhile, friends are concerned that Ye has been wearing the same clothes for days at a time.

Friends say Ye is having difficulty getting over estranged wife Kim Kardashian who is spending most of her time with comedian Pete Davidson -- away from her 4 children.

People who are depressed tend to neglect their hygiene and wear the same clothes for days on end.

Bella Hadid shared a series of tearful Instagram photos on Tuesday, as she urged her followers to seek help for their mental health.

The supermodel explained that she cries nearly "everyday" and "every night" to relieve her stress.

Bella has been candid in the past about her struggles with depression and anxiety. She reminded her followers that social media shouldn't be their obsession.

"For anyone struggling, please remember that. Sometimes all you've gotta hear is that you're not alone. So from me to you, you're not alone. I love you, I see you, and I hear you."

The 25-year-old model and influencer compared chemical imbalances in the brain to a roller coaster ride with "ups and downs" that eventually come to a complete stop.

"There is always light at the end of the tunnel, and the rollercoaster always comes to a complete stop at some point... [but] it does get better."

She wrote that she's had "enough breakdowns and burnouts"

"[I]f you work hard enough on yourself, spending time alone to understand your traumas, triggers, joys, and routine, you will always be able to understand or learn more about your own pain and how to handle it. Which is all that you can ask of yourself."

Bella is among millions of people who cry daily to relieve stress. Experts say shedding tears cleanses us mentally and is good for our bodies.

A club in Japan is dedicated to daily crying, called "Rui Katsu," which translates to "tear activity."

Researchers say crying releases a neurochemical in the brain that relieves stress and helps the body get rid of cortisol, aka the stress hormone. Crying also helps the body to rest and digest food better.

A growing number of schools and companies in Japan encourage their students and employees to cry daily as a way of relieving stress and improving mental health.

Facebook has deleted thousands of comments and banned trolls who taunted Lizzo's wight and made racist comments about her.

The "Truth Hurts" singer broke down and wept in a YouTube video after trolls hurled "fatphobic and racist" remarks about her new single "Rumors" featuring Cardi B.

YouTube users rated the single a flop and called Lizzo "mammy" because she portrayed a goddess in the music video.

Wearing a stocking cap on her head and wiping tears from her eyes, Lizzo said:

"On the days that I should be the happiest, I just feel so down... I work so hard. I've been working triple time... doing 12 hours a day of promos and interviews... going to the studio with a f**king root canal...

"I'm putting so much love and energy into the world, and sometimes I feel like the world don't love me back."

The 33-year-old songbird returned to the Internet on Tuesday, after Facebook took action against her tormenters.

She thanked supporters for their positive energy and said it was "important" for her to express her anxiety and depression that day.

"We really need to check ourselves and how we treat people," she said.

"I'm not crying for me. Yeah, I'm successful, I'm happy, I strive for joy every single day. I'm balanced, I'm blessed. But I just be feeling for the world. This sh-t ain't right. We shouldn't talk to people like that. We shouldn't normalize treating people this way."

Following her mental breakdown, social media bosses removed thousands of nasty comments on Lizzo's Facebook and Instagram pages.

According to TMZ, Facebook officials banned the accounts of trolls from both social media sites.

They will continue to monitor Lizzo's timelines and remove toxic comments, so the fragile singer doesn't end up in a mental hospital.

Tennis superstar Naomi Osaka withdrew from the French Open after she was fined $15,000 and threatened with disqualification for refusing to take part in a press conferences.

The 23-year-old tennis champ, who plays for Japan, was a no-show during her post-match press conference on Sunday, May 30, after defeating Romania's Patricia Maria Tig.

Tournament officials at Roland Garros threatened Naomi and warned her that higher fines and a possible suspension could be issued if she refused to speak to the press.

Osaka made headlines last week when she issued a statement saying she would skip post-match press conferences at the French Open, citing mental health concerns.

"I've often felt that people have no regard for athletes mental health and this rings very true whenever I see a press conference or partake in one.

"We're often sat there and asked questions that we've been asked multiple times before or asked questions that bring doubt into our minds and I'm just not going to subject myself to people that doubt me."

And in an email to French Open officials Naomi insisted her actions are "100 percent nothing against the French Open or even the press members themselves."

In a statement posted on social media on Sunday, the world's No. 2 women's tennis player wrote:

"Hey everyone, this isn't a situation I ever imagined or intended when I posted a few days ago. I think now the best thing for the tournament, the other players and my well-being is that I withdraw so that everyone can get back to focusing on the tennis going on in Paris.

"I never wanted to be a distraction and I accept that my timing was not ideal and my message could have been clearer. More importantly I would never trivialize mental health or use the term lightly. The truth is that I have suffered long bouts of depression since the US Open in 2018 and I have had a really hard time coping with that."

Tournament bosses released a statement that read: "We have advised Naomi Osaka that should she continue to ignore her media obligations, she would be exposing herself to possible further code of conduct infringement consequences."

Officials said "repeat violations" could result in "tougher sanctions including default from the tournament and the trigger of a major offense investigation that could lead to more substantial fines and future Grand Slam suspensions."

Naomi was scheduled to play against Romania's Ana Bogdan during the French Open on Wednesday.

Snoop Dogg's daughter, Cori Broadus, opened up about having suicidal thoughts in a post on Instagram over the weekend.

Cori, 21, shared a series of photos that show her having a romantic seaside picnic with a friend.

In the post caption, Cori explained that she nearly took her own life in the last few weeks. She said her family and social media followers gave her "a purpose to live & helped me realize Iife is much more than materialistic things..."

"The last few weeks my mental has not been so great at one point I tried to end my life but you & my family really give me a purpose to live & helped me realize Iife is much more than materialistic things & you gotta just keep pushing through the bullshit. THANK YOU... #mentalhealthawareness."

Although Cori changed her mind about ending her life, she is not out of the woods yet.

Mental health experts say most people who have suicidal thoughts do not go on to attempt suicide. But suicidal ideations are a risk factor for suicide.

Expressing suicidal thoughts publicly means they may already be in the planning stage, and intervention is necessary.

Cori followed in her father's footsteps by recording a single titled "Do My Thang" in 2011. Snoop was featured on her single "Daddy's Girl" and she and rapper Drake were both featured on Snoop's No Guns Allowed album.

The tragic suicides of two Black teenagers prompted calls for more mental health services in one of the most neglected communities.

16-year-old Mikayla Miller (right) was found hanged from a tree just steps away from her apartment in Hopkinton, Massachusetts.

Mikayla's death touched off rumors that she was "jumped" by 4 white teens -- two boys and two girls -- who then carried her body into a wooded area and lynched her.

Just hours before she died on April 18, Mikayla fought with a group of white teens, including her ex-girlfriend, in the clubhouse of her apartment complex.

She suffered a bloodied lip, police said. The clubhouse showed signs of damage. Hours later, Mikayla walked into the woods and hanged herself with her belt.

Her family said Mikayla was a member of the LGBT community.

State law enforcement officials initially ruled her death a suicide. But pressure from her mother, Calvina Strothers, and community activists prompted police to take a closer look at the evidence.

Tracking her steps on her iPhone's Health app, investigators discovered she walked about 1,316 steps -- roughly the distance from the complex into the woods where her body was found the next morning.

Additionally police traced the GPS signals of the teens she fought with. None were in the woods that night.

"As to who else may have been in the woods or that area on Sunday, we do not have any information as to that," said Middlesex district attorney Marian Ryan.

Ryan doesn't believe Mikayla's death was the result of foul play.

A week later, Saniyya Dennis, a 19-year-old Buffalo State sophomore (pictured), went missing from her dorm room.

Saniyya's father, former Dipset rapper 40 Cal (Calvin Byrd), offered $10,000 for information on his missing daughter.

At an afternoon press conference on Thursday, police said Saniyya apparently jumped to her death from Niagara Falls after calling an ex-boyfriend 66 times.

A text she sent to her ex read: "I'm not feeling good - I think I'm going to kill myself."

Family handout

Surveillance video from Saniyya's dorm in her final hours on April 24 showed Saniyya throwing personal items into a garbage can.

Police retrieved the discarded items and concluded that she didn't plan to return to her dorm room.

Hours later, she took a bus to Goat Island where she made a 45 minute phone call to a male friend. The male friend later told police he thought he'd convinced her not to take her own life.

Saniyya sent a text message to her mom telling her she loved her. Her cell phone pinged a tower close to the edge of Niagara Falls.

At 1:22 a.m. she sent her friend a final text message, assuring him she was back on the bus.

A minute later her phone left the cell phone network -- an indication that she either turned the phone off or it was destroyed.

"It appears that this poor girl took her own life," said Erie County DA John Flynn at a press conference on Thursday.

Flynn said her body may never be found because it is likely wedged in jagged rocks below.

If you are having suicidal thoughts, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741-741.

A body recovered from the Mississippi River has been identified as 18-year-old Louisiana State University student Kori Gauthier.

Police say they don't suspect foul play in the disappearance of the LSU freshman.

She was last seen alive on April 6 by her boyfriend after the two had an argument.

Gauthier's car was found abandoned on the eastbound side of I-10 on the Mississippi River Bridge in Baton Rouge on Wednesday, April 7.

Police towed the car to a junkyard after another driver rear ended the vehicle on the bridge about 1 a.m.

Gauthier's family had offered $10,000 for information on her whereabouts.

Surveillance video footage and cellphone tracking were among the evidence that police presented to Gauthier's parents to support their theory that she jumped.

There is also "other evidence we shared with Kori's parents that we are not liberty to disclose publicly out of respect for their privacy," LSU chief of police Bart Thompson said at a press conference on Wednesday.

Kori's father, Levar Gauthier, told NOLA.com he had no idea his daughter was missing until she failed to show up to an orthodontist's appointment.

He said her former roommate used an app to track her cell phone to the junkyard where police had towed her car on Wednesday.

Her cell phone, keys, and wallet were found inside the car.

Gauthier's uncle Spencer said finding her body means the family can have closure. He asked her friends and supporters to continue to pray and uplift the family during their time of grieving.

He also urged his Facebook followers to honor his niece by listening to Stevie Wonder's song, "These Three Words."

The search for missing LSU student Kori Gauther has ended after human remains were found in the Mississippi River.

The 18-year-old Louisiana State University student was last seen alive on Tuesday, April 6. Her car was found abandoned around 1 a.m. on April 7, after another car crashed into it on the Mississippi River Bridge.

The abandoned car - with her cell phone and wallet inside - led investigators to speculate that she jumped off the bridge.

The body was found in the Mississippi River in Reserve, Louisiana, about 50 miles southeast of where the searchers were looking for Gauthier.

LSU police said the search focused on the area of the river after a cadaver dog targeted a dangerous stretch of water twice, Fox News reported.

The remains have not yet been identified by the coroner.

Police said late Saturday they do not suspect foul play in Gauthier's disappearance.

Gauthier's family and friends want answers.

The family said she went missing after arguing with her boyfriend, Tyler Toussant. He was the last person to see her alive.

Gauthier's sister defended Toussant in a social media post.

"STOP attacking her boyfriend. He has been in her life for a long time now. The way y’all are attacking him is sick. He is hurting just as much as us. He’s her family too. repost the posts and pass out a flyer and let the police do their job."

Women everywhere sympathize with Iyanna "Yaya" Mayweather (right) who is depressed and longing for her baby's father, NBA YoungBoy -- even though he's moved on with someone else.

Yaya, who recently gave birth to the 21-year-old rapper's 8th child, Kentrell Jr., took to social media to share a throwback photo of herself and YoungBoy when they were smitten with each other.

The 20-year-old's hopes and dreams were shattered when YoungBoy impregnated another woman -- while Yaya was still pregnant with his seed.

Yaya's followers begged her to let him go. They told her he's no good and he doesn't care about anyone but himself, but she doesn't care.

"I post what I want," she told her concerned fans on Instagram.

Yaya is content to be a loving single mom who waits by her phone for that one call that will never come.

Like most rappers, NBA YoungBoy has a plethora of children and baby mamas. When he's not making time for them, he's shacking up with his latest concubine, Instagram model Jazlyn Mychelle.

The couple was seen grocery shopping together in Houston, Texas last month.
