In response, Mobley reassured her: "I'm not planning to do this temporarily. I haven't been in a relationship in a minute so I'm not just doing this s--- for fun. I plan on being here for a long time."

"Dr. Bryant really helped out with that, letting my guard down and trusting [Mobley]," she revealed during her appearance on E! News. "Like, it's okay. He cares about you. He's showing up for you and let him... and I was like, 'Okay.'"
