“Cheer” star La’Darius Marshall is “safe” after he left fans concerned over an alarming, cryptic message he posted to social media on Thursday.
According to a new post on his Instagram account written by a Debbie Bonner, “Ladarius Marshall is safe are home here in Texas with me @dlbonn Thank you all for carrying for our Boy, he will receive the help he needs I’ll make sure of it. We will take good care of him.”
The Netflix star sparked concern after posting a since-deleted message saying (via E! News): “Ladarius 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. 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 22-year-old Navajo cheerleader added, “I am not what my media shows. 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,” and concluded, “I’m tired of hurting people. I have Given up this time.”
Some of his “Cheer” co-stars voiced their concerns by commenting over social media to send their support.
“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,” Gabbi Butler wrote.

She added, “I can not 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 Harris also added that he is there to help him through “whatever is going on” and that he has “been the best thing to happen to me.”
Marshall opened up about his past traumas in the Netflix series, including being a survivor of sexual abuse, which he has since said “left him in a dark place.”
“I never wanted to be perceived as a victim. I don’t like the word… I know what I’ve been through, but look how far I made it,” he told The Cut in April. “I don’t have to have shields on — I just should live… You’re gonna miss out on your blessings if you don’t allow people to come in.”
