WWE Superstar Paige has finally broken her silence on social media after her private photos and videos were leaked. She took to Twitter, on March 28th, to explain the leak from her perspective, the invasion of privacy, and how people have been discussing it.
The first message talks about her fears of being abandoned by her fiancé and her family. However, Paige added in her statement that they stuck by her side, as she was ridiculed and mocked for what she did in her private life.
“I made a big mistake. I put trust in the hands of someone that took advantage of a young girl, years ago. It was my mistake and I’ll always take responsibility.

But the hardest thing was thinking “my husband is gonna leave me” “my family will disown me” but I’m blessed beyond words to have a family and a husband that stuck by me because they know who I am. They know I’m not a bad person and they held my hands through hell. Because as my husband says “you may feel like the devil is throwing you into a storm, but just remember, you are the storm.” And he’s right. Unfortunately people don’t see it that way when they are behind a keyboard.
They don’t think that we have feelings or that we don’t suffer. Not only was I a victim of viral humiliation but a victim of cyber bullying.”She would go on to comment on her struggles to get through all the negativity and embarrassment she suffered. She also stated that she even considered harming herself.
“I had days where I wanted to physically harm myself. Not only for what millions were telling me but because my family and my husband were suffering the same fate from the internet because of my mistake. It made me and Alberto wonder how people who aren’t as mentally strong as us can handle this? How many people have to suffer because of the internet and the cowards behind the keyboard. Or how many men and women have fallen into the same trap as me and made those mistakes? That’s why we are taking this massive negative and making [it] some kind of positive. We wanna bring those people to justice and also take down the ones who are trolls, for the lack of a better term.”Her final message indicates that she intends to bring awareness to people who are in similar situations. Furthermore, Paige also cautioned people to think before they act to avoid something that may affect their career later on in life.“Bring awareness.
Bring help to those who don’t have the tools or the mental strength to do this themselves. To show men and women alike to always think about their future before they do something that may cause a butterfly effect later on in life. Now I know through all of this…No one will make me feel bad about my mistakes, I already know what they are and I already feel bad. But Alberto and I together can also make a change. My mistake could help people’s future. Think Before you act. Paige finally concluded on a positive note, stating:“Anyways.
Onward and upwards. Only happiness. No longer talking about anything. Just looking into the future and being happy! I mean come on, I’m getting married? How can I not be happy!!!!”
Her fiancé, Alberto Del Rio, took to twitter and announced that they will be getting married this Wednesday. Hopefully, Paige and Del Rio can stick to their claim of moving past this and be happy as they enter the next phase of their lives together.
