The singer Two Feet made a public cry for help — and he’s now getting it.

The New York City-based performer, whose real name is Zachary William “Bill” Dess, posted what he called a “suicide note” on Twitter Tuesday. The post, which has since been deleted, was captioned “goodbye.”

“Most of my fans live here on twitter and Spotify,” the 25-year-old wrote. “I want to tell all 12k of you that I love you so much. I hope I’ve helped you in some manner.” He noted that he would be uploading some unfinished music to his Soundcloud account.

He concluded: “I know it may be odd posting a suicide note on twitter. But thats the world we live in. I’ve been completely honest with you forever. Anyway I love you.”

There was immediate concern from fans and other artists — and it’s unclear what happened after. However, his father later took to Twitter to say that he’s safe, getting help in the hospital, and will “survive.”



The family issued a statement to Billboard, saying, “He is alive and receiving medical treatment. The family appreciates all the love and concern and request privacy at this time.”

In early July, Two Feet’s song “I Feel Like Drowning” hit No. 1 on Billboard’s alternative songs chart. “Drowning” also became Two Feet’s first No. 1 song on any Billboard chart.
