“I’m very disappointed that someone somewhere will try to tarnish my image and destroy my career of over 45 years. This morning, I received messages from someone threatening to expose very old pictures of me and in the process, blackmailing me for money.
“These could’ve been pictures of me in the hospital or even with my partner. But is this what has become of us? I plead with everybody out there to be very careful as our current situation has made people to be very desperate.
“I’m almost 60 years old. I have worked very hard and made a name for myself. And for somebody to believe that they can threaten or trample on my feelings is very sad. So, I’ve decided to share the messages and pictures sent by themis person with everyone for you all to see.
“Thank you and God bless you! For you the blackmailer, I refuse to be bullied by you as I’m sure that I’m old enough to be your MOTHER!”
