Sharing the apology on his Instagram Story, Vorce, who's Billie Eilish's boyfriend, apologized for the "offensive" words he used on social media in the past. "I want to apologize for the things that I wrote on social media in the past. The language I used was hurtful and irresponsible and I understand how offensive those words are," the 29-year-old wrote. "Whether it was a lyric, a quote o rjust me being dumb, it does not matter." "I am ashamed and deeply sorry that I used them in any context. It is not how I was raised and it is not what I stand for," he continued. "I shouldn't have used this language in the first place and I won't use it again. I am so sorry for the hurt I have caused."

"I was thriving," she said of that time. "I felt exactly like who I was. Everything around me was exactly how it was supposed to be. I felt like I was getting better. I felt happier than ever. And I tried to continue that." She also described herself as "clingy," but that she's learning to live on her own. "I didn't know how [to] before, which is ironic because I had never been in a relationship that allowed me to really exist with that person anyway," she told the magazine. "My emotion always is because of somebody else's, and that had been such a big pain in the ass."
