While her character on Glee was named Sunshine Corazon, it seems like real life was far less bright for our beloved Charice Pempengco. In a tragic turn of events, the 21-year-old has reportedly attempted to commit suicide.

According to Teresita Relucio, the singer’s grandmother, Charice slit her wrists, though providing no timeline for the incident in question, due to financial issues. She tells local Filipino program Showbiz Police that the young woman’s “bank account had been cleared out.”

This hasn’t been an easy few years for Charice. Even discounting her finances, her father was murdered late 2011. She addressed the tragedy on Twitter, saying “I am very sorry to all my fans from Singapore. I am not going to be there to be part of David Foster and Friends concert. I have to go back to the Philippines as soon as possible to be with my family. I hope you all understand. I love you all and I will see you next year.”

Earlier this year, after facing her share of fears on the subject, she publicly came out as a lesbian, “Now I feel free. I can go out of the house without fear and be certain that I’m not stepping on anybody’s toes. I don’t know what’s the problem with that. Because for me, there isn’t a problem with that.” She added, “Now, I’d like to ask for forgiveness to those who aren’t able to understand.”
