She said; "for me, nothing from the fact that I do own a foundation, and I do get to take care of a lot of domestic violence cases also children of domestic violence, and also being a victim myself, I wouldn't dictate for anybody to say this is the right way or wrong way to do it.

"Every time I look at my son, every time I even want to cry because everything I do he does. The way I get irritated, that is the way he gets irritated. I'm like this guy is a mirror to me, so he is mirroring me. So if I had stayed in an abusive relationship, he will say it's okay mummy stay. So if I'm beating my girlfriend, she should stay because mummy stayed so why are you leaving?. This is my ideology, another woman will say I want to stay so my child can have a father.
