She said, “In 2001, 2002, I stopped acting and moved to London, it was a dark moment in my life because I had issues and fell out with some friends and family. I gave up fame and stardom. I need to leave that space for a while and focus on other things.

“You will not believe it, this is something I have never told people before but while in London, I was trying to make ends meet, I started working in a care home as caregiver to adults with special needs.

“While some view it as a stepdown, I don’t, see taking care of others brought me joy and purpose at a time I needed it most because I took care of my mother and father, when they were ill.”
