Although she has since deleted the posts, a third party grabbed the videos and posted them on YouTube.
‘I just feel so dirty and stupid right now, you know? We were just hanging out and one thing led to another. I just feel really dumb, because it was partially my fault… I’m just like sitting here like feeling f****** low and s***… I just want to f****** disappear right now.
‘I just feel really bad. I don’t think I’m going to be putting out more music…Like I just want to take some time…and figure out what just happened’.
‘You don’t really realize it like this rape s***. Men can just prey on you and f****** like badger you, force you to say yes… to the point where you feel like you gave consent but you didn’t give s***. You never wanted to do s*** and you’re just there feeling f****** powerless. Someone really just got the f****** best of me,’ she said.
Shocked with the assault she said she wanted to take down her social media and quit music.
‘I’m gonna take down all of my accounts because I’m just like embarrassed. I just feel like really broken down and feel like rebuilding myself as an artist. I don’t know how to face y’all,’ she said.
She then pleaded for her followers to call her friends or manager to pick her up and be with her.
She later returned to Instagram with the message: ‘I’m awake and walking y’all!! I’m good!! Like I said..It takes a lot to take this elephant down!! Show is still on for tomorrow..see y’all then!!!’
‘What is even in a roofie? I’ve never felt that type of intoxication in my life. I woke up my throat was in pins and needles,’ she added.
She has a performance scheduled for Sunday evening.
She updated her followers saying the show is still on for Sunday night. She then revealed that she was roofied and was shocked by its effects

The artist has often landed in hot water for getting into spats, pictured above in 2016 speaking on an altercation with Russell Crowe where he spat at her
The New York rapper rose to fame in 2011 with her hit 212.
However she has often landed in hot water for getting into Twitter fights with other artists.
In 2016 she used racial slurs against former One Direction band member Zayn Malik on Twitter.
She raised eyebrows when she publicly supported Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election. She also mocked Hillary Clinton fans Katy Perry and Lady Gaga after Clinton lost the election.
In October 2015 she got into a violent spat with a club bouncer in Los Angeles but the charges were later dropped.
Earlier this month she appeared in Manhattan Criminal court for another case in which she bit the breast of a New York nightclub bouncer in December 2015 for which she got a plea deal where she has agreed to complete 12 hours of anger management.
In 2015 she got into a spat with actor Russell Crowe at a party he was hosting at the Beverly Hills Hotel where she said Crowe choked her, spit on her and made a racial slur as he threw her out of his hotel suite.
Despite the drama, the singer has locked down a million-dollar record deal with E1 Entertainment in February.
After landing her deal she addressed her 506,000 followers with a touching message saying: ‘When I was a little girl all I wanted was to be loved. I’ve been all around the world but swear I’ve never felt more understood, cared for and welcome than I have with you all. You are the loves of my life. I don’t need anyone else…’
