The actress was specifically called out for choosing a random man as her sperm donor in an attempt to bear a child.

In response to this claim, the actress disputed it in a now-deleted Insta Story post; stating that her sperm donor isn’t a random male. She further urged those invading her private life to focus on important issues in the country.

”My daughter’s donor isn’t just a random person. Doesn’t make him any more than a donor. Now y’all can start to focus on what is really important in this country and leave us the hell alone,” she wrote.
