After speaking out, Twigs began working with an organization called Sistah Space, which provides resources to abuse survivors, with a particular focus on people of African heritage.

She added: “If I ever have children I want them to know that I stood up for myself and that’s important. And sometimes it’s messy standing up for yourself.

“Sometimes it can cause more trauma, and sometimes it can be divisive. People don’t expect you to stand up for yourself, but I did it and I’m proud of it, and what happened to me wasn’t right.”
