On July 22, 2020, Jayashree set an alarm among her fans on Facebook with the message “I quit. Goodbye to this f ***** g world and depression.” As soon as the post was published, her friends and colleagues reached out to her, urging her not to take any extreme steps.
A few hours later, Jayashree removed the post from Facebook and said, “I’m Alright and safe!! Love you all.”
Three days later, on July 25, Jayashree went live on Facebook and said, “I am not doing all this for publicity sakes. I do not expect financial help from Sudeep sir either. I am only expecting my death as I am unable to battle depression. I am financially strong but depressed. I have been going through a lot of personal issues. I have been betrayed since childhood and unable to overcome it (sic).”
