Dear fans and followers, I wanted to make a wee community announcement. I couldn’t help but notice that there has been some social animosity of late. It is becoming increasingly prevalent on my feed. There have been lots of, let us call it speculation for now, about my private life and professional partnerships. Even your most conservative of negative assumptions about both my personal and professional life just aren’t true. I am very happy in love, and in life. If you can’t bring yourself to be happy with me, then at the very least try to do yourself proud and be the best version of ourself.
After all the trolling on social media, the couple decided it was best to start keeping all details of their relationship private.
