"That [sex tape leak] scarred me. People invaded my privacy to the point where sometimes I didn't want to go out. I barricaded myself in the house for months. I was so sad to the point I was contemplating suicide. I was on the floor, I was so low -- I got so skinny, collapsed with exhaustion in hospital. They said it was stress-induced anorexia. I wasn't eating, wasn't sleeping, I lost all my hair," the British fighter said in a recent podcast.

"I was out yesterday with my friend. We were just sitting there having a Bloody Mary. This guy comes up to my friend and says, 'That's the porn star.' I cried in the toilet. I find it hard to be close to anybody," added Paige, whose real name is Saraya-Jade Bevis.
