The media would love to paint a picture of me a sad lovely woman crying on a plane by myself but it’s NOT TRUE,” Julia wrote in an Instagram Story after the split. “Why not see me for what I am, which is a #1 hustler.

So, please continue to root for both of us, because you never know what life will bring.”
