It was reported the 25-year-old did not care what people thought of her newfound affair and said her main focus is on her nephew.
The model added that she has been going through a tough time and would appreciate if people were a bit more understanding and less judgmental.
“What matters most I have learnt, is to show compassion, not to judge others, and never take a moment of life for granted. I hope you all do the same,” she said.
