Gold Coast influencer breaks silence after collapsing at Kylie Jenner’s party

The Gold Coast Instagram star who was photographed being stretchered out of Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday party in the US has broken her silence.

Tammy Hembrow took to YouTube this week to let her fans know that she’s okay, and to inform them of her side of the story.

“Firstly I want everyone to know that I’m okay… So yeah I pretty much collapsed,” the 24-year-old said in the three-minute video.


The mum-of-two admitted she was “super embarrassed” about the incident before explaining what led to her collapsing.

“Basically what happened is I was in LA, I was running off pretty much 30 hours of no sleep,” she said.

“I was struggling to stay awake even when I was getting my hair and makeup done, I could barely keep my eyes open.

“I probably definitely shouldn’t have been drinking because of how jet-lagged I was, how exhausted I was and I already wasn’t feeling well at all.”

Hembrow, who runs a successful clothing business and has more than 8.6 million Instagram followers, finished by thanking her family, friends and fans for their support.

“Thank you guys for all the supportive and kind messages. I’m super grateful because I know I have a lot of true fans that genuinely support me and want me to succeed,” she said through tears.

“I’m not going to let something like this define me.”
