Saweetie Opens Up About Her PTSD Diagnosis


Diamonte Quiava Valentine Harper came on the scene as a rapper by the name of ‘Saweetie’ in 2018 with her first single “Icy Girl” and was signed to Warner Records.

Earlier this month, fans had speculated something fishy between her and ex boo Quavo, after it appeared the couple had un-followed each other on social media.

“I’m single. I’ve endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes for a false narrative to be circulating that degrades my character” the ‘Pretty and Rich’ rapper tweeted Friday.


Shortly after we heard from Saweetie on a new york radio station where she got embarrased after spitin some bars that didn’t meet up to certain peoples standards.

The ‘Baby Mama Coochie’ rapper shared with Cosmo magazine that after a bad review on a freestyle she performed on New York’s Hot 97 radio station in 2018; she suffered PTSD. The rapper was dealing with a plethora of things at that time.

The incident happened when hosts Ebro Darden, Laura Stylez, and Peter Rosenberg prompted her to freestyle and she gave what was described as a “subpar” performance.

“It was a really dark point in my life. Going from being so loved so quickly because of ‘Icy Girl’ to, on my first promo run, well, you saw the interview. The script flipped really quick, like night and day. I was like, Wait…” she recalled. “I had PTSD from that.”

She said was tired of feeling left out and not having the things she wanted. “I got caught ’cause my friend got caught. Never encouraging this, but we was good at what we did. And I got caught.”
