    Paige revealed one of her most well kept secrets recently with this family picture. She wrote, “I don't think I've ever posted a pic of my brother Asa (middle). Only because I've always wanted to keep his life private. But I haven't been able to see my brother in 6 years.. or hear his voice in a long time. Asa although he may not look sick. He is. He's been in and out of mental institutions for most of his life. Now he's a permanent resident of one for the past 7 years. Doctors have diagnosed him with many things.. He has schizophrenia, psychosis, dual personality disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, extreme paranoia, mania and autism. I wake up every morning thinking of my dear brother. I just wanna say I love you Asa Aaron Bevis and I'll always protect you with all my heart. Whatever I go through is nothing compared to the battles you have to face everyday of your life. I feel very lucky to be your sister and I can't wait to hug you again. You make me stronger. #HesASurvivor#MentalHealthAwareness #MyBrotherAsa”

    Paige recently shared her thoughts on her weight gain and what people’s opinion on that were. She wrote, “When the internet society keeps saying "she got fat" "Paige got big" "Paige is a big girl now" I post another full body selfie. I'm just shoving a middle finger up in the air to body shamers. Being in the public eye can be hard when people out there are jealous and just want to make you feel bad about yourself to make them feel better about themselves. I was too skinny, now I'm considered too big. It's ridiculous. But I'm happy. People of all shapes and sizes are beautiful. Be confident. You don't have to be in the public eye to be cyber bullied. Just being on social media in general can generate the worst hate sometimes. But you know when you have haters.. that means you're doing something right. Tag me in your selfie today to show me how beautiful you all are. Plus the trolls will hate it and they'll see that you're confident in yourself and know you're beautiful, this isn't a Pity party post. This is just to show the world we don't care what they think! #EveryHumanDeservesRespect”

    Hope all is well and you're having an amazing day. I just wanna say. Thank you for always being there for me. For loving me without judgement and for always remaining by my side when I've messed up or when I'm fighting against the world. You're always there to hold my hand and hold my chin up when I need it and even when I don't need it you're there. Thanks for always supporting my life choices whatever they maybe. You're a wonderful man with a fantastic heart and always put other people first before yourself. Not one day goes past where I don't think about you and all the wonderful things you've done for me and the family. You're a true inspiration to my life, you've taught me so much and I'm extremely fortunate and thankful to have a dad like you.. thank you for being my angel on earth. I'll love you forever and always and whenever you need me I'll always be there. Enjoy your day and you deserve all the greatness coming your way. Love you”

    Paige recently opened up about her sex-tape scandal with Xavier Woods, she said, ““That scarred me, just people invading my privacy, to the point where sometimes I don't want to go out. People are just looking at me bad. 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 really hard to be close to anybody. And that's the reason why. When they came out I barricaded myself in the house for a couple of 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 I ended up collapsing with exhaustion in hospital in England. They told me at the time it was like stress-induced anorexia. I wasn't eating, I wasn't sleeping, I lost all my hair. I have clippings right now but I literally have no hair because my hair fell out, because I was so stressed. It just broke my heart. I was like 'why would someone want to do that to someone? Stay away from recording things, I have never done anything like that since. I definitely would say ‘do not record things. You do not have to record things to make people happy, I was trying to make someone happy. I was definitely degrading myself. Woods is a really nice guy, he is my friend, a great guy, so I also feel bad for him. I degraded myself as a woman and I would never want anyone to do what I did.”

Everything hasn't turned out perfectly but I wouldn't have it any other way. Obstacles have made me the strongest and healthiest I've been in a long time. A year can make a hell of a difference. Surrounding myself with positive and encouraging people have been extremely beneficial for my life. I didn't think I would make it this far and now I can't wait to see what my future holds! ☺ï¸ÂðŸÂÂÂ’• (still with the same roots though. Siisssss fix that shhh)”
