Bella shared a photo of an Italian city and captioned her post: “I look back on better times.”

She added: “I’ve been feeling so emotionally lost lately and I want to share that with you because I promised you that I will be my most authentic self on this platform. Life is a little crazy right now; nothing feels normal.’

She said she recently stopped posting on social media because she felt “criticized.”

“It’s so hard to be positive right now, but I try really hard to remember that focusing on feeling good means that the good will come to fruition,” she said.

“I’ll be honest, I stopped posting there for a while because I got tired of being criticized.”

She apologized to fans for “letting them down” before saying she was “emotionally eating” during the lockdown.

“PSA I’ve put on 6kg and haven’t been able to fit any of my jeans on so I haven’t been feeling very confident in my own skin lately,” she said.

‘But you know what? S**t happens and I can’t help being an emotional eater.’

Bella’s post comes after her friendship with Bec Cvilikas ended.

The two women had become best buddies after finishing second on Locky Gilbert’s season of The Bachelor last year, even moving into a flat in Bondi together.

During an Instagram Q&A last week, Bella said the couple wasn’t arguing, but instead realized their friendship had changed.

“There was no big fight, we just realized that our friendship has changed, which is normal in relationships and friendships,” she explained.
