Wynonna Judd has a message for fans about her mental health.

On Tuesday, the country singer posted a video on Instagram addressing her mental health following the suicide death of her mother Naomi in April 2022. She addressed a comment in which a fan accused her of not having the looked “good” and claimed his manager pushed Judd too hard and became “hungry” for opportunities for the “Love Is a Bridge” artist.

“I heard some of the comments, and the first thought I had was ‘Opinions and assholes,'” Judd shared in the video, where she also shared the on-screen comment. “And then I realized people were really worried, so I want to respond to this article. I work so hard on my mental, physical and spiritual well-being. I have a great team and I’m really lucky. And I’m broken, and I’m working very hard to take care of myself – which isn’t selfish, it’s sacred.

She joked that she compares her life to “Wynonna Incorporated,” because she incorporates “a lot” into her life, including family time.

“I have a very busy schedule, but I also have free time to go to the farm and walk in the woods and take the dogs, and tonight is Mexican night, we are playing games and it’s family,” she concluded. “So I’m fine. The last thing I’ll say is you can’t hold a good woman down for too long.

Earlier this week, Judd shared on social media that she won’t be joining Kelsea Ballerini on stage for a New Year’s Eve performance in Nashville, due to an “extreme fit of vertigo.”

“Nashville, I am heartbroken and so sorry for letting you down tonight,” Judd said in an Instagram post. “Kelsea, I can’t wait to take the stage with you in February, better than ever!!!!”

Last year, Judd opened up about the passing of her mother and how it made her reflect on her own mental health. In an Instagram post in May, she wrote that she didn’t want Naomi’s death to be the end of the Judd family story and vowed to do the work to help the next generation.

“I know to be a healthier grandparent to my first grandchild Kaliyah, {born 4/13, 2 weeks and 2 days before mom left}, to break the cycle of addiction and dysfunction family, I must continue to show up {first} and do the personal healing work,” she wrote at the time. “I know this is a program of simple steps, and these Steps aren’t always easy to follow, so I’m committed to keep doing the “next right thing” and schedule weekly appointments to keep the work going, even when I have good days. . »
