This comes shortly after she took to social media to advise women on keeping positive energy at home for the sake of their children.
The celebrity stylist advised women to never try to block fathers from their children just to punish the men for hurting them. She said, in the end, it is the child that would get hurt and would be affected by such behaviour.
