my friend's in a abusive relationship where he has so much control over her, and he threatened her of commiting suicide if she ever leaves him. He showed her that he will do it by showing the cuts he did on his arm. What is the right thing to do? I know she needs to leave him, but at the same time she feels like she has no choice because if she does, she'll feel like it's her fault that he commited suicide.

Leave, its not your problem if he commits suicide. She shouldn't have gotten into the relationship in the first place if the guy is this crazy. I am telling you right now you can easily tell guys that are crazy in about 80% of cases, I'm assuming your friend saw the signs and refused to believe them because she was so "in love" with this guy when they started dating. If he is causing her to go crazy by his craziness then she should just leave, its better for one guy to hurt himself then for both of them to be hurting themselves. If you really feel he is going to go crazy after she breaks up with him call the cops, or notify someone close to him so they can get him some help. Most of the time though this is just a scare tactic some really desperate guys employ to keep girls under control, I've heard half a dozen guys threaten things like this, chances are he won't kill himself, simple as that.0

He is most likely saying that to keep having control over her. She needs to leave him, let his family know, call the appropriate emergency services and tell them that "I am leaving him because he's threatened suicide."
And lastly his suicidal thoughts are not about your friend. He had his own demons to deal with life which caused him to say such things.
