Controversy

During her recent stream on Twitch, she revealed some serious and filthy actions in the entertainment industry which she had experienced in one of her recent projects. She said, 

The fact of the matter is the last few projects I’ve worked on, I didn’t have the best experiences with some of the people I had to work for. One of the last movies I did, one of the producers hired a girl that he was sleeping with and then he had her ask me to have a threesome with them.

I get to stay inside my house and play video games and I don’t have my boss asking me to have sex with them. I’m happy here, and I’m developing my own projects. I’m hoping that someone decides to fund them because then I can be in control of my own set, and I’m not gonna ask my actors to sleep with me.
