"I've always said there's a difference between being lonely and alone. I'm not lonely. I love being alone," Burke revealed to fellow dancer Louis van Amstel. "Like that is something new."

"So I would fill the void with being physical with someone else, with dating, with drinking, with partying," the 38-year-old continued, adding that she was so "exhausted" from the process of constantly having to be in "fight, flight or freeze" mode.

As OK! previously reported, Burke has been struggling with the fallout of their breakup since their shocking split earlier this year, with the dancer hinting their marriage ended due to infidelity.

"When he said he would never talk to her again yet I found text messages, viagra, and a necklace hidden in a pair of his shoes," she wrote in a video set to Adele's "When We Were Young" that she posted back in August.

"The last time is absolutely right!" she captioned the clip. "Goodbye forever…#exessuck #goodbyeforever #hopeitwasworthit."

Burke and Lawrence met in 2006 and tied the knot in 2019. They were married for nearly three years before making the decision to go their separate ways.
