People will always have their opinions and assumptions but no one has ever reached out to me before writing a story. They think that attacking me on blogs and social media will make me rant but I will not.”

Addressing the rumors that she was friends with Anne, she said, “I have met Anne once about seven years ago. I just said hi. I don’t know her personally and we are not friends.”
