The yellowing of the sclera, the whites of the eyes, is typically caused by jaundice and can be the result of kidney failure, hepatitis, gallstones or a tumor.
While the 30-year-old rapper hasn’t addressed the video or speculations about her health, she has, in the past, discussed using alcohol to treat depression. In a 2018 episode of Viceland’s ‘The Therapist’, Marrero talked about using alcohol to cope with depression as a teen, “Drinking a bottle of Absolut and just crying my heart out and just not understanding what the hell is going on. I was just acting out. I ain’t wanted to carry on with life, I didn’t know what to do.”
