That I was a disgrace to AsAms and they would be better off without me,” she said in a Twitter statement.

“It’s negatively affected my career, but in many ways it’s personally had a positive impact on me because it made me take a break from my career, it made me go to therapy and understand it and ultimately get better to get out.”
