Millie Bobby Brown finally addressed her relationship with tiktok star Hunter Ecimovic. In a recent cover interview with Allure magazine, the Stranger Things actress opens up about recovering from the trauma of a connection that left her ‘publicly humiliated.’ Millie revealed that earlier in her current relationship with Jake Bongiovi, she was an ‘unhealthy situation’ with the TikToker. The actress also shared that she felt very vulnerable adding that she walked away from Hunter in January 2021.
The Enola Holmes actress, who was filming season 4 of the hit Netflix series at the same time, shared, “No one on the set knew I was going through this. So it was kind of nice to be able to just deal with that myself and no one else knew.” Brown added, “Then it was harder when the whole world knew.” Millie Bobby Brown further shared in the interview, “It was a year of healing. When you get publicly humiliated this way, I felt so out of control and powerless.”
She continues, “Walking away and knowing that I’m worth everything and this person didn’t take anything from me, felt very empowering. It felt like my life had finally turned a page and that I actually had ended a chapter that felt so f***ing long.” For the unversed, after the actress parted ways from the Tiktoker, Ecimovic went live on social media in July 2021 and shared shocking, vulgar and harmful claims about the star.
Millie Bobby Brown’s ex-boyfriend also alleges that the two were engaged in an intimate relationship when Brown was a minor. He also claimed to have ‘groomed’ and manipulated Brown. However, the actress denied all the claims. The actress went on to say, “Ultimately, all I wanted to do within my career is help young girls and young people out there know that I, too, go through things. I’m not this perfect person that is selling skin-care products and [who is] in Stranger Things. I absolutely have made wrong decisions.”
Brown also shared in the cover story that she is taking steps to take care of her mental health, combatting the bullying she has faced online since becoming a household name in 2016. In addition to therapy, she has deleted her TikTok and Twitter accounts while a member of her team manages her official Instagram and Facebook pages. She keeps no social media apps on her phone.
