THE TWEETS READ IN FULL:

"Friends & fam, I apologise sincerely to everybody who will be effected but I am not in the right place mentally to continue doing shows or anything that involves leaving my children.

"I am taking time to find my faith before I lose the connection with the people I love the most. Being a 'celebrity' it’s difficult to tell people I ain’t feeling well.

"It’s difficult to take time away because people expect you to be superhuman. I am not superhuman. I’m just another human being who wants to find some sort of peace and happiness in life. I’m sorry. I love you guys. See you later, maybe. (sic)"
