Marshall posted a short soundless video of himself and wrote a caption that spoke about how he is portrayed and feeling broken.
'Message to my people: Ladarius Marshall is floating away, going away, fading away. I have hurt people, I have loved people, and I have given all I am to few people. Some people are strong enough to make it in the end but my fight stops here. I have loved so much that when something falls away it takes a piece of me with it. What’s left of me is nothing, I’m empty. I hope that when you think of me that you think of positive things that I have brought into your life. Painting a picture to seem happy isn’t the way to go for me anymore. I am not what my media shows. I’m a broken kid who has lost his fight, his battle, and his war. Carry on with life, but keep me in your memories. I love each and every single one of you guys. I hope that God shows you the way. Hurt people hurt people, and I’m tired of hurting people. It’s ok I’ll be smiling wherever I’m going. I have Given up this time.'
Immediately, followers offered beautiful words of how much he meant to them. Many commented the national suicide prevention hotline.
His co-stars, along with multiple celebrities, took to his comment section to uplift him with kind words.

Thursday night, the cheerleader appeared in a photo with a woman who reassured fans he's safe and will get the help that he needs.
Hopefully, La'Darius is able to take care of himself and put his mental health first.
