“La’Darius Marshall is safe at home here in Texas with me, @dlbonn. Thank you all for [caring] for our boy, he will receive the help he needs I’ll make sure of it. We will take good care of him,” the cheer mom wrote in a post uploaded to La’Darius’ Instagram page.
Debbie’s update came hours after the 22-year-old Navarro College cheerleader took to Instagram in a since-deleted post — which was screenshotted and reposted to social media — and wrote, “I have given up this time.”
“La’Darius 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,” he said in the alarming message. “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.”
The Netflix star continued, “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 just want to tell you how much of an impact YOU have made on my life. You made me strong when I was weak. You lifted me when I was down. You have made me a better me. I need you to know that you are my EVERYTHING,” Gabi wrote. “I cannot stress enough how important you are to not only me, but so many other people. I love you with all my heart, body and soul and I would literally take a bullet for you. Please, please, please just know that you are very loved and cared about.”
Jerry added, “You mean so much to me and others and have made a huge impact on so many people! I want you to know you have so many people that love you so much for YOU! You have made a huge impact on America and they love you so much just like everyone who’s close to you! NEVER lose sight of that. It’s definitely something that keeps me going when times get tough and trust me THEY DO!! But I know I have family, close friends, and die hard loving fans that support me and build me up and you do as well!”
As fans know, in the Netflix docuseries, La’Darius opened up about the bullying he suffered at the hands of his brothers and sexual abuse he endured as a young boy.
