Mumbai: Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra attempted suicide three times during her struggling days including in 2002 after the death of her alleged former boyfriend Aseem Merchant's mother, her ex-manager Prakash Jaju claimed.

In a series of tweets, Jaju said the 33-year-old Quantico star was extremely close to Merchant's mother and did not take her demise well.

The celebrity manager added he wanted to make a point "that suicidal tendency is in most of the girls of film industry."

Jaju said Priyanka and Aseem used to fight on daily basis and on one such night, the actress attempted suicide.

Priyanka, who is shooting in Los Angeles for her maiden Hollywood film Baywatch, did not immediately respond to messages for her comments on Jaju's claims. Jaju also spoke about TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee, who was found dead at her home on April 1 in a suspected case of suicide. PTI
