As per MailOnline, the singer tells the host that she was, "So unhappy last year."

"I was so unhappy and I was so like, joyless."

"I don't want to be too dark, but I genuinely didn't think I'd make it to 17."

Gayle asks, "Did you think that you would do something to yourself?" Billie replies, "Yeah."

She goes on to recall a very dark moment where she contemplated suicide.

"Yeah. I think about this one time I was in Berlin, and I was alone in my hotel..."

Billie continues, "And I remember there was a window right there, and I, like… God, I remember crying..."

"Because I was thinking about how... The way that I was gonna die was that I was gonna do it."

She says it was the thought of her mother Maggie that stopped her.

Billie's mother helped her

Maggie helped Billie by getting her into therapy and declining requests on behalf of the singer.

Her mother reveals it was her daughter's fans and passion for music that saved her.

Maggie tells Billie, "You made it to seventeen." The singer replies, "I did."

"Don't take that extra step and hurt yourself further, and you can't take it back."
