"It was insane. I didn’t leave my house for like, months," she admitted. "I was so embarrassed. I felt like everyone on the street was laughing at me. I literally could not walk in the street because I felt like every single person had watched it, had seen me naked, and was talking behind my back."
The hotel heiress continued discussing just how low things got for her after the news of her sex tape was released to the public. "It was like being raped. I lost part of my soul and had been talked about in such cruel and mean ways. I literally wanted to die at some points. I was like, I just don’t want to live because I thought everything was taken away from me. Like, I didn’t want to be known as that.”
