The model that was seen leaving Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday party on a stretcher has spoken up about her preceding exhaustion and hospital stint.
Tammy Hembrow was in the list of famous guests invited to Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday party at Delilah in West Hollywood. She attended the event alongside The Weeknd, Bella Hadid, Dave Chapelle, Cara Delevingne, French Montana, Chris Brown, Ashley Benson, Winnie Harlow, and Jordyn Woods.
Hembrow befriended the Kardashian-Jenner family after starring in one of Khloe Kardashian’s Good American campaigns.
Hembrow was seen leaving the event on a stretcher and had a short stay at the hospital. She recently posted a video to YouTube explaining to fans what exactly happened and how she is feeling now.
She said, “So, firstly I just want to let everyone know that I’m OK. I’ve had a lot of concerned followers messaging me and asking if I’m just all right. So, I just want to clear that up and say, ‘Yes, I’m OK.’”
She explained, “So, basically what happened was I was in L.A. I was running off pretty much 30 hours no sleep. I was struggling to stay awake even when I was getting my hair and makeup done. I was literally sitting there, like, falling asleep. Like, I could barely keep my eyes open.”
“I’ve been throwing myself into work way more than ever, and also, I have my kids the majority of the time. [It’s] literally been like a non-stop, on-the-go kind of thing,” she added.
Hembrow broke up with her fiance Reece Hawkins in June, and said that added to her exhaustion, because of which she eventually collapsed in the middle of celebrations.
She explained, “I think because of the breakup I’ve been trying to keep myself busy and not really taking time to think about how I’m actually feeling or focusing on myself kind of thing. I probably, definitely shouldn’t have been drinking because of how jet-lagged I was, because of how exhausted I was, and I already wasn’t feeling well at all.”
“I was honestly fine at that point, and I was talking to a bunch of my friends; I was catching up with some people. So, yeah, I pretty much collapsed,” she explained.
She also said that the experience has taught her the value of rest, saying, “Honestly, I’m like already super, super embarrassed about it. I read a quote yesterday and it said, ‘Make time for rest or your body will force you to slow down in ways you probably won’t like.’ And I feel like that couldn’t be more true.”
She also apologized to her fans, saying that she had wanted to hide away when embarrassed but that she was now ready to face them and explain what happened.
“Anyway, so the next day, I was obviously super embarrassed. I was with my friends, so we decided to, like, relax, do a little bit of shopping, not, like, just…I just kind of wanted to brush everything aside and just like…but obviously that’s just not the best thing to do, not just for myself, but for my fans who have always been there for me and supported me.”
Kylie Jenner has not commented on Hembrow’s exit from her party or even let on that she knows about the incident.
