Dua Lipa confessed that she nearly quit making music after becoming the target of vicious online trolls.
The Grammy-award winning 26-year-old has catapulted into stardom since finding fame in 2015.
With her number one hits, including One Kiss and New Rules, Dua explains that her chart-topping songs would never have happened if she didn’t overcome the abuse she’d receive from trolls.
The Levitating singer opened up about the trauma she suffered and how the abuse got so bad that she was ready to quit the industry.
She told The Sun: “There were moments of self-doubt, even though it was kind of unfair because a lot of the people that had sent those messages or were saying things online actually hadn’t been to one of my shows."
She added: “Social media is kind of run on this toxic currency of who can make people laugh at the expense of others. Now, if anybody says anything, it doesn’t even bother me.”
Dua has previously admitted that the trolling and abuse got so bad she turned to pal Russell Brand for advice.
She said on her At Your Service podcast last month: “I was interested in starting therapy and he came through with a recommendation. I was going through an intense period.”
