“I don’t think I understood the real depth of my feelings for my father until we spoke,” she said.

“I don’t think I’ve ever been fully in any of my relationships.

“From a young age I always had this fear that you would leave me anyway, so I’m leaving or I won’t invest in anything.”

Regarding her father’s death, she added, “It was like crying and leaving something. I’ve felt so calm ever since. It really did not set me free. “

She told Rolling Stone that since she died, she had reconnected with US sports agent Rich Paul for the “most incredible, open-hearted, and easiest” relationship she had ever been in.
