Lady Leshurr came out as pansexual after being betrayed by someone close to her.
The Dancing on Ice star, real name Melesha O’Garro, was outed publicly in a malicious manner when her ex posted a number of tweets back in 2018.
“The way she outed me was quiet malice and she tried to out someone else out in the tweet as well and I don’t think it was respectful at all, it was really mean,” the rapper told Gay Times .
“The thing is, people actually knew we were going out, it was just never confirmed.
“Initially, I thought I could ignore what she’s tweeted about me and just pretend like nothing’s happened and simply carry on doing my music, but then I thought no, I’m gonna actually turn this negative into a positive.
“I’ve grown so much since then and I learned from that whole situation.”
Having lost her sister to breast cancer, Lady Leshurr has vowed to push herself while competing on the show.
“I recently lost my sister to breast cancer and that’s really made me think I need to push myself, I need to challenge myself, to get my confidence back,” she said.
“Doing TV work feels like a breath of fresh air. I did MasterChef and I couldn’t cook but I went on it because I wanted to push myself and learn. I think everything is all about learning.
“I’ve always wanted to skate. Even though I’ve been petrified and could never do it with my mates.
“Now, I’m not even telling my mates I’m doing it. I’m just going to be like ‘turn the TV on’ and they’ll be like what the hell?!
“I love the thought of the benefits from this too. Afterwards I’ll be able to skate, one day I’m going to be teaching my kids and my little nieces and nephews to skate.
“That’s what I see in this show – learning and taking something from it.”
