Carlee Russell's kidnapping story is slowly melting away and so is her mental health apparently ... 'cause her boyfriend is begging the public to cut out all the cyberbullying.
Thomar Lattrel Simmons was interviewed Saturday by the New York Post and made his desperate plea on behalf of Russell.
Simmons said, "The only thing I can say is, I want everyone to stop bullying her. I know what it seems like what she did. Just stop bullying on social media."
He continued, "Think about her mental health. She doesn’t deserve that. She doesn’t. Nobody deserves to be cyberbullied."
As we reported, Russell has come under intense scrutiny after she claimed she was abducted on the side of a highway while trying to help a child.
She called 911 on June 13 and told the dispatcher she saw the toddler wandering along the interstate as she was driving home from work.
Russell promised to wait with the child until the police arrived, but, when the cops got there, Carlee was nowhere to be found and neither was the kid.
Two days later, Russell returned home without so much as a scratch. Since then, police have investigated the incident and publicly stated they have not been able to verify Carlee's suspicious account.
As a result, Russell was recently fired from her job at a day spa in Birmingham, Alabama.
