She shared a photo of herself and wrote: "Bit late to the party but 'Happy New Year', wishing everyone a year full of love, strength, positivity, happiness and blessings.
YOU got this.

"2023 didn’t start the way I expected, but I’m determined for it to end as the most remarkable year yet.

"Truth be told it’s been the hardest time of my life, my heart was broken which was extremely difficult for me to deal with without having something that is so pure and real to me publicly devalued and disrespected on so many levels, which inevitably broke me."
