Nigerian actress and content creator, Monalisa Stephen has broken her silence following the post she made online which caused her fans to worry.
The body positivity advocate disclosed that she has been battling diabetes since she was 10 years old.
The plus-size movie star took to Instagram on Monday to recount her s3xual abuse and bullying which was also part of the reason she became su*cidal.
She 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 about what you may be going thru.
“I was su*cidal 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.”
Monalisa fans worried on June 5 after her message on Instagram.
The message raised concerns among Instagram users who speculated that the actress was about to commit suicide, others called for help and asked her family and friends to reach out to her.
