Coko Gamble of SWV wasn’t herself the first half of the group’s Verzuz battle against Xscape on Saturday night (May 8).

[40 Totally Accurate Tweets About The SWV Verzuz Xscape Battle]

When SWV came out, Coko was the last one on the stage and she didn’t have a microphone in hand. She appeared to discretely wipe away tears and at one point her leg was shaking.

In a post on her Instagram page, the singer revealed prior to the show, a woman was shot outside of her hotel and it caused her to have a bad anxiety attack.

Last night as I’m preparing for Verzuz, a lady was shot outside my hotel window. To see & hear the four shots, see her laying on the ground and all the blood was unbelievable!!

Thennnn…I get to the venue and had a really bad anxiety attack!😱 Literally crying & screaming. Yeah y’all saw me looking uncomfortable & irritated during the first half but, if it wasn’t for my son @jayyemichael @ynottamiya & @mrljb I probably wouldn’t have been out there at all.

Thank you for calming me down & understanding my mental. I love y’all to the fullest!!❤️❤️❤️ I always say most won’t care to understand but when you get those that do cherish them!!🌹🌹🌹 #mentalhealth#mentalhealthawareness #verzuz #swv#coko #myvillage

You never know what someone is pushing through.

Sending my love and prayers to Coko for peace of mind and spirit.
