“I was lost and I felt invisible. I gave someone control over me to basically make me do whatever it was that they wanted me to do and act how they wanted me to act," the 22-year-old said during a sit down interview with Gayle King and CBS Mornings.

When asked about the infamous 2019 interview that she took part in along with another young woman Joycelyn Savage, Clary revealed, “Before that interview he had us practicing every single day."

"He told us to be angry and upset. And if he didn’t like our answers, he would tell us exactly what to say and how to say it," Clary detailed. "I was scared because I was like, ‘I don’t want the world to see me this way. I’m loving, I’m caring, I’m compassionate. And no one got to see that side of me,” she said of her drastically different demeanor.
