Reality starlet Tila Tequila has publicly announced on her Twitter site that she is seeking help for her recent suicidal feelings.

The 27-year-old has experienced some personal turmoil lately, following an alleged assault - by her former San Diego Chargers defender boyfriend Shawne Merriman - at his San Diego home.

Merriman has claimed his innocence, saying that he was only trying to stop Tequila from driving while intoxicated.
