August Alsina Cries On Instagram Then Deletes Video, Fans Show Support

August Alsina posted an Instagram video Saturday night of him staring at the camera and tearing. He also tweeted "speechless" with a link to the video on his Instagram page which was then quickly deleted.

It is unclear of what has August upset, but many of his fans said he may be thinking of his older brother, Melvin LaBranch III, who died Aug. 2010.

Melvin was tragically shot and killed in eastern New Orleans. August has been pretty open in previous interviews on his past and the passing of his brother. After his brother died, August became even more committed to pursuing music.

Melvin's birthday is coming up on April 15th. This is also the day August used last year to release his debut studio album, Testimony.
