Hembrow, who boasts over 8 million followers on Instagram, broke her silence about the situation on Monday.
“I want everyone to know that I’m OK. I’ve had a lot of concerned followers messaging me and asking if I’m alright so I just want to clear that up and say yes, I’m OK,” she said in a YouTube video.
“Basically what happened is I was in LA, I was running on pretty much 30 hours, no sleep. I was struggling to stay awake even when I was getting my hair and makeup done. I could barely keep my eyes open,” she continued, adding, “I probably definitely shouldn’t have been drinking because of how jet-lagged I was, how exhausted I was. I already wasn’t feeling well. But I was honestly fine at that point, and I was talking to a bunch of my friends, I was catching up with some people.”
Hembrow added she was “super embarrassed” about the incident, adding, “I’m not going to let something like this define me. I’m not going to let it bring me down.”
Hembrow, 24, recently broke up with her fiancé and the father of her two children, Reece Hawkins.
“I decided to end things with Reece,” she told her over 1 million YouTube followers earlier this summer. “He didn’t cheat on me. I didn’t cheat on him. It wasn’t like that at all.”
