I pretended that I had not understood him and looked away. I knew that if I acknowledged him or tried to decode his signal, he would do something dangerous.

That is the day I learnt the importance of having tight security,” said Pierra in her interview with Parents Magazine.

Pierra said that everything was going south for her and she had no money in her account. She narrated that she had also quit her job and her company was not making any money.

I got depressed after giving birth to Ricca. My current bank account was at zero. My company was young and wasn’t bringing in any money. I couldn’t deejay as much plus I had resigned from a well-paying job. I started surviving on my savings,” she said in part of her post.
