I have use-case where I need some additional information before deleting actual entity.
So I need to be able to pass data with DELETE requests

// Execute request
        $response = Requests::delete($url, $this->headers, json_encode($data));

illegal string offset type

Enhancement may be ?
delete - improvements
may be

You can directly call Requests::request instead. DELETE has undefined semantics for body data (RFC 7231, §4.3.5), so it's not supported in the short convenience method.

$response = Requests::request( $url, $headers, $data, Requests::DELETE, $options );`

Hi, it don't like json_encode($data), it works with other requests such as PATCH but not with $response = Requests::request($url, $this->headers, json_encode($data), Requests::DELETE);
Error : http_build_query(): Parameter 1 expected to be Array or Object. Incorrect value given

Patch working ex : $response = Requests::patch($url, $this->headers, json_encode($data));
