"I've been wanting to kill myself for the past 3 days"... a text from my son to his girlfriend.

There is a fine line between manipulation and truth. My son is 16, his girlfriend (of 5 months) is also 16. He's been grounded for the past week because of lying, sneaking out of the house, breaking his iPhone, and screaming at me because he was in trouble. She is manipulating him as well and trying to drive a wedge between us (his father, myself and him) and her. However, after reading this text this morning, I am concerned, but almost feel that it was sent to her in an effort to get her to talk with him (manipulation). At the same time, I'm not taking it lightly and we plan on talking with him this evening. I don't want to cause another argument, so what is the best way to approach this?
