Former Playboy playmate Ashley Mattingly shared a shocking video to Instagram of herself in a hospital bed two days before her suicide last week. The troubled 33-year-old, who had battled alcohol abuse, is barely recognizable in the clip due to an animal filter that distorted her face and voice to the point where her words are inaudible. However, in the caption, Mattingly explained that she had been admitted to the hospital with alcohol poisoning.

"I’m not quarantined I took bad advice and drank too much which I vometed a lot of blood. please slow down on the drinking! U won’t be able to get into a hospital! I’m lucky!" she wrote.

Mattingly was found unresponsive in her home in Austin, Texas, on April 15 after a friend contacted police with concerns about her well-being after not hearing from the model for an extended period of time. The model had left a suicide note however its contents have not yet been disclosed, according to People.

Mattingly's siblings explained that she had moved closer to home several years ago to be near her family.

"It’s maybe no secret that Ashley struggled with alcohol and substance abuse, but she wanted to and was working toward getting better," they said.

Fans shaken by the news took to Instagram to mourn her death.

"It saddens me to learn you were struggling so much. You will be missed," wrote one follower in reply to Mattingly's video.

"RIP Ashley. You were one of my favorites. Too bad you didn't realize how valuable life is," another commented.

"Omg I feel so sorry you went through all this. you are now in a better place, but deserve to still be on earth and not dealing with such struggles. Rest In Paradise," another Instagram user wrote.
