of having Pneumothorax, a condition that causes the lungs to collapse.
also currently suffering from a condition that affects many women across the
world called Endometriosis. She took to social media to share her pain with her
fans and friends and to raise awareness for the condition.
She wrote “Good morning...what a terrible
one for me. So leo (today) my cramps decided to attack me early morning. I've
cried, wailed, moaned, scream, writhed in pain. This is not pain I'd wish on
anyone ever. I can't eat anything cos I'm on a vomit and running stomach spree.
I can feel the endometriosis lesions in my shoulder and praying and hoping they
don't move to my lungs, this is excruciating pain.”
She goes on to write “Feels like a saw is
cutting up my shoulder. My legs are numb and I can only sleep on my right side.
My hot water bottle is my best friend. Hot flashes, serious heat wave. Now this
pain needs a cure. Today has been terrible. I can't do much and mum always feel
sad seeing me in this state. Any mother would. I'm in pain.”
