‘I think it’s important for us as women to be united and to talk about our experiences, and to talk about past trauma that we’ve gone through, and how we’ve dealt with it. 

‘There are women out there who are going through the same thing and they can’t because they don’t know what to do,’ she said as she became emotional.

‘My heart breaks for them… its not fair for anyone to ever feel unsafe or anyone to feel like they can’t talk to somebody about it,’ she added. 

Wiping away her tears, Jessika continued: ‘You should never feel worried about anything like that, you should never feel threatened by a man or woman.

‘It’s not okay. Even if it’s not physical, it’s mental, it’s psychological, it damages people.’

Last week, she told her social media followers: ‘My problem for a long time has been, I’ve been scared to leave the house. It’s like a phobia of leaving the house, the anxiety I get is just insane.’

Agoraphobia is a type of anxiety disorder in which a person is afraid to leave environments they consider to be safe, for fear of suffering a panic attack. 

Jessika added that the problem flared up after spending long periods in the house while her then boyfriend, rapper Filip Poznanovic while he was recovering from a broken leg.

The star added that she didn’t want to ‘bash’ her ex online, and that she did have the problem before they met.

‘He didn’t do this to me, this is all in my own head, it wasn’t his fault… I was a little like this before him as well, but it’s gotten worse. To even get myself out of my room sometimes I am too scared,’ she admitted.

Jessika said that she has been pushing herself to face going out more, and was meeting her father for lunch and going to get her nails done to try and overcome the anxiety.
