Plus-size actress and model, Monalisa Stephen has broken her silence weeks after sharing a disturbing note on social media.
It would be recalled that the actress got her followers worried on Tuesday, June 7, after she shared a cryptic post which seemed like a suicide note on her Instastory.
The thespian has now granted a tell-it-all interview where she opened up on being bullied from a young age, her struggles with health-complications and poverty.
According to her, she was called degrading names because of her size and her ex-boyfriend once told her that he was dating her out of pity.
Monalisa who advocates for body positivity, said all these negative life experiences got to her and made her suicidal.
She shared a video snippet of the interview and wrote,
“Over the week, there have been wrong misconceptions/Talks and I would have ignored but I owe it to my family and friends and women who actually look up to me to tell “MY TRUTH.
What happened to me have got nothing to do with “ BODY POSITIVITY “ it’s Farrr from it .
Have had my own share of the struggle/suffering( I came from Nothing) so I work really hard to get here and I will work harder .
Over the years I have grown a thick Skin. When trolls come for me sometimes I am thinking of my next meal or my next content.
Sometimes I am struggling with how not to go completely blind due to complications from Diabetes which I had since I was 10 years old. Then some other stuff and Tinnitus(you don’t want to have that trust me )But I understand people just wanna troll you without not thinking what you may be going through.
I was suicidal due to this ugly incident but I am not Depressed.
I was just unfortunate to meet Evil and I am glad that I am healing”
