When asked if she and Ella managed to fix things and become friends again, Kelsey replied: "We were close for a long time, but a lot of things happened and I think we just grew out of our friendship," she followed up.

"I don't hate her & I wouldn't ever throw shade on her and she shouldn't with me either… I wish her all the best but I think it's better off us not being friends."

Kelsey recently told how she was left terrified when younger sister Kennedy stopped breathing and was rushed to hospital.

She explained that Kennedy had possibly suffered a collapsed lung and was left ‘struggling’ for her life during the horrifying experience.

Sharing a picture of her in hospital, Kelsey wrote: “4am ambulance, possible collapsed lung, love you Kennedy.

She continued: “Praying for my little Kennedy so much today. Last night was the most horrible thing I have had to see in such a long time. She stopped breathing and was struggling for a long time yesterday. So, so unfair and gutted for her.”

Kennedy, who is thought to be nine, has life-limiting disease Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
