She continued, “is the disappointment of seeing something as precious and as special as I thought was the relationship I had with the father of my children, and seeing that turned into something vulgarised and cheapened by the media. “And all of this while my dad was in the intensive care unit and I was battling on all fronts.”
“This is perhaps the darkest time of my life,” she continued.
