Management for boxer Adrien Broner said the former four-division champion is OK, after he posted a series of messages on his various social media accounts that indicated he was contemplating suicide.
"I spoke to [boxing manager] Al Haymon; he said there's nothing to be concerned with here," "Premier Boxing Champions" spokesman Tim Smith told USA Today. "Premier Boxing Champions" is a TV series organized by Haymon's management company.
On Instagram on Wednesday, Broner posted a photo of a handgun with the caption, "I'm going home I love y'all." Later, he posted to Instagram a photo that read: "3PM I'm doing it I'm sorry to my family and friends but I don't want to be here no more this s--- too much."
Responding to worries about the Ohio native's well-being, Cincinnati Police tweeted that Broner is safe.
Last month, felony assault and aggravated robbery charges against Broner were dropped when the accuser and star witness failed to show up at the Hamilton County courthouse in Ohio.
Earlier in the year, the accuser dropped a civil lawsuit against Broner.
The charges stemmed from an incident during the early-morning hours of Jan. 21, when Broner allegedly assaulted a man and robbed him of $12,000 at gunpoint outside of a Cincinnati bowling alley. Broner allegedly lost the money to the accuser during a night of high-stakes betting on bowling games, knocked him unconscious outside the bowling alley after a confrontation and took the money.
After the bowling alley incident, Broner had two outstanding felony warrants issued for his arrest, but he still boxed in Washington, D.C., in a nationally televised fight on April 1 and knocked out Ashley Theophane in the ninth round -- one day after being stripped of his junior welterweight world title for failing to make the 140-pound weight limit.
Though the charges were dropped, Broner did still serve 30 days in jail for being found in contempt of court after showing up three hours late to a scheduled courthouse appearance.
Broner (32-2, 24 KOs), who has won world titles at junior lightweight, lightweight, junior welterweight and welterweight, returned to Cincinnati and turned himself in on April 4, as had been arranged between his attorney and Hamilton County officials a few days before the fight with Theophane. Broner was released later that day on $100,000 bond. He plead not guilty at his arraignment on April 5.
