As some know, Ecimovic slammed Brown on an Instagram live, per Glamour. The TikToker told viewers that he and Brown "engaged in sexual acts," and he claimed to have "groomed" the star. Brown's reps denied the claims, but the actor still told Allure that the ordeal affected her and caused her to embark on a "year of healing."

She also shared how glad she was to close that chapter of her life, but noted that she made some "wrong decisions."

Brown is currently dating Jon Bon Jovi's son, Jake Bongiovi, and she seems as happy as can be in her Instagram posts with him.
