In his Instagram article, Duffy wrote that it took a long time to recover and that she opened up to a reporter last summer. The interview about what happened to her will be released in the coming weeks, she said.
“You’re wondering why I didn’t choose to use my voice to express my pain? I didn’t want to show the world the sadness in my eyes,” she said in the post. “I wondered how can I sing from the heart when it’s broken? And slowly it’s not broken.”
