“I’ve always been open about the fact that I suffer with my mental health. When all of this happened, the first thing that I needed to do was make sure that I wake up every morning. I felt extremely triggered by everything. So the only thing that I can do right now, is share my truth. And that I feel I have not been able to do out of fear,” she said.

“My brother and I do not have a relationship. I can’t even remember the last time I saw him in person. My mother knows exactly how I feel about him. It’s been a theme of my life to try and prove that I am not like my brother. I genuinely was trying to figure everything out along with everybody. I did not know the intimate details. I still don’t know where everyone is.”

She said she had been deprived of having a relationship with her nieces and nephews because of Tariq’s alleged actions and no longer wanted anything to do with him.

“I have my own personal experiences with him. I don’t know what receipts or what dirt you have of me over the past ten years that you speak of, but I’m not scared of you any more, and whatever you say … this has been the theme of my life with just feeling fear of what you can say or this or that … I don’t care about what you can say because I know in my hurt … how you made me feel, and the trauma that you caused me. I stand on the side that gives justice, whether you are my family or not,

“As I’m sitting here I honestly feel numb. I’m going to do what I can to fill my cup. I’ve cried. And I’ve had dark thoughts. I’m grateful that I have a support system around me. And I’m just taking it day by day. And I’m sorry if you feel like I disappointed you … but I am trying my best.”
