Ray J's recent Instagram posts left fans concerned that he was contemplating suicide, but a TMZ source says the artist was just "messing around."

On Thursday (October 6), Ray J posted a series of alarming messages on social media along with a picture where he appeared to be dangling his feet off of a ledge, all of which have now been deleted, per TMZ.

One caption read, "If it wasn't 4 my Kidz I would jump off and die tonight."

"SHOULD I JUST JUMP off and end it rit. Now!!! ????" Ray J questioned in another post.

The artist also took to this Instagram story, writing "trying to figure it out — maybe this life was a illusion — maybe the next life was my real reality."
