She received soo many calls and messages from journalists that she had to change her number.
To make the matter worse, her every move was tracked by the paparazzi after she gave birth to her first child. Once, she was soo distracted by the black Audi that she had an accident colliding with the car in front of her. She had known that the car was following her on multiple occasions. Additionally, she was unable to take care of her daughter or take her outside as there would be journalists waiting with cameras in every step she would go.
It reached the point where she became soo frightened that she had to cancel many appointments including the appointment for her daughter at the time because the distraction would make everything unsafe.
