G.R.L. singer Simone Battle had been struggling with financial problems before committing suicide … TMZ has learned.

We know friends and family members told law enforcement  … Battle was depressed over money issues recently — the family wasn’t specific but they were clear … money was bringing her down.

The family didn’t quite understand, because Battle was part of a successful singing group that had just completed an overseas tour.

People close to Battle told cops … she was frustrated that she hadn’t hit in the U.S. and worried she never would.  Apparently Battle wasn’t cutting it financially overseas.

We broke the story … the 25-year-old singer was found hanging from a clothing rod in a bedroom closet of her West Hollywood home. Her boyfriend found the body about 8:30 A.M.  We’re told he had last seen her alive about 5 hours earlier.
