Sharing her monthly income, which she admits to being inconsistent, she said: “One month can be 4,000, 10,000, 500 pounds, 25,000. Honestly, it can vary wildly. Some months can be really good if you’ve had a couple of the jobs are paid at the same time. Other months like January are so quiet you might not earn anything, “the star explained.

“You have to be very careful in this industry because you never know what your next paycheck will be.”
