ZIMBABWEAN filmmaker and journalist, Violet Avoid, who was reported to have committed suicide due to depression is recovering in hospital.
The influencer, who was in the Philippines shooting documentaries, was alleged to have taken her own life after experiencing a stressful period.
The family however, disputed the death rumours and confirmed that she is recovering in hospital.
A source said Violet had ingested rat poison.
“She was in the process of filing for divorce and was facing some cyber bullying.
“She was now based in China before relocated to Philippines.,” said the source.
Fagio Marowa, said Violet was a member of the Young Zimbabwe Influencers.
He said Violet had once told him about her social life which was not going well.
Violet appeared in Malowe video by Andy Muridzo & Jeetaz Band.
She celebrating her 33rd birthday a day before the alleged incident.
Just seven hours before taking her own life, Violet had posted a request for proofreading on her Facebook page:
LITERATURE GURUS, MAY YOU PLEASE HELP ME PROOF READ THIS PASSAGE
“We care for our friends, we feel the need to protect them and sometimes they don’t see it. Instead they take things for granted not seeing the danger at play that not only affects them but also the one who is fighting to protect them.
“If they say they do not care about dying yet they claim that if they die they will not rest then they contradict themselves. Wouldn’t it be logical to sign out before sinking in the inevitable danger? Maybe then they would realize that not everything is worth taking for granted.”
