According to Ian Alexander Jr.’s Twitter, the aspiring DJ claimed he was “losing his s--t” and felt like his brain was on fire just prior to allegedly taking his own life Wednesday.

“You know that episode of SpongeBob where they go inside his brain and it’s a bunch of mini spongebobs just losing their s--t…..yea that one really hits home,” Alexander Jr. tweeted just five days before his suicide.

“I don’t think Instagram is healthy for me,” the 51-year-old actress’ son also posted just prior to claiming he felt like he was losing it.
