Her emotional post read: ''So I've just had a really major life event happen and I want to talk about it because this wouldn't be an Azealia Banks page without loads of oversharing right?
''Anywho, I've just had a miscarriage and am pretty taken aback by it all and really confused and in shock and guilty and a bit depressed and like a failure and very ashamed.
''Has anyone else had this same experience who cares to share some words of wisdom or words of anything regarding this topic
The self-loathing bit is a real struggle for me at the moment so share any words here, They will be greatly appreciated. Thanks (sic)''

You never get over it but its easier to live with. You grieve how you need to and remember it wasn't your fault and your not a failure. (sic)''
While another follower responded by saying: ''Omg I hope you recover soon and get some rest and relaxation. Take time to process what just happened. Try not to stress it. (sic)''
