Kaz Crossley has begged fans to stop trolling her ex-boyfriend Theo Campbell after a leaked video saw her arrested in Dubai.
The former Love Island star was arrested last week in light of a video from 2020 of her sniffing a white substance.
She’s since been released and returned to England.
After reassuring fans that she was "safe", Kaz then took to Instagram to tell her 1.1million followers what had happened in her own words.
In a video shared to her page on Thursday, the 28 year old said she wanted to "speak ‘her own truth."
Kaz went on to say that she's had a lot of messages of concerns from her followers, largely warning her about her friends in her circle, but she explained in the clip that the leaked video of her with a white substance was reportedly recorded by an ex, not one of her pals.
She said the video was leaked by an ex-partner, who she dated for a year, with the intention of maliciously ending her career.
Her fans assumed this was her ex-boyfriend Theo Campbell, 30, who she dated for a year after meeting at a Muay Thai gym in Thailand.
Their split came as a shock to Theo in February 2020, who appeared on Ex On The Beach saying he was "looking for answers."
However, taking to her Instagram stories on Friday, Kaz confirmed that the ex who leaked the video of her wasn’t Theo.
She wrote: “It wasn’t Theo! We are friends now and just filmed a show together please stop sending him abuse,
“It was a relationship that I kept private, thank you for all the love on my recent video love you all x."
Addressing the ordeal in more detail, Kaz said: "Hi everyone. I wanted to do this video to speak my own truth and use my own voice about a situation that's happened to me," she began.
"I feel like I owe it to my followers and I owe it to myself to get closure about this situation because it's been a good few years and I'm ready to move forward now."
She went on: "In 2020, I was in Dubai. I was filmed – it was me in the video, no one forced me to do that – it was a time of my life where I definitely didn't love myself at all, probably. And this is reflected in what I was doing to my body and who I surrounded myself with."
"[The video] later got leaked and then, more recently, I was on my way to Thailand," Kaz further explained.
"I had an amazing job offer. I was so excited for this job offer guys, it was like my dream job and I was staying up all night researching and, yeah, I did not think about the transit in Abu Dhabi and that it would be an issue for me because, obviously, I wasn't thinking and… yeah, everything happens for a reason.
"I was then detained in Abu Dhabi and kept in custody from Monday through to Friday, which is when they released me.
As to why she's addressing it all now, the former Love Islander said she's "done a lot of healing" since the video was leaked and that she now feels confident to speak out on the matter.
"I've made a lot of mistakes but I will not allow my past to define who I am now," Kaz insisted.
She's since been showered with support from the likes of fellow Love Island stars Ovie Soko and Shannon Singh, Saffron Barker, and RuPaul's Drag Race favourite Awhora.
