Below are five key things she said:

1. "I didn't plan for a broken home, I didn't plan for a broken marriage.

After my marriage, there was so many negativity and I was emotionally carried away."

2. "I didn't heal before jumping into another relationship but I thought I was going to be healed by another relationship.

I realised I didn't love myself and I wanted people around to love me.

I didn't focus on things that really mattered. I was focusing on things that don't matter and I always choose people before me."

3. "I did not love myself enough. I was losing touch with things that used to work for me because I was involved with negative habits like drugs, smoking, codeine.

All these things were empowering my negative energy. So I had to stop."

I stopped doing a lot of things. A lot of bad things that brings out the negative energy in me."

5."I sought for help. I changed some people and friends around me and I stopped my negative habits.

The battle is 100% over. I have lived my past behind I'm looking forward to the future.

I'll let everything that happened in the past be in the past. That's why I agreed to change my name. I'm in the future. I thank God for giving me another chance."
