But why did she filed a lawsuit against her ex-boyfriend after all these years? According to the actress, the aim is to help other women avoid a similar fate.

“The biggest message I want to get out is that a lot of us live in a bubble and we think things can’t happen to us, but they do. When it does happen to you, take care of yourself, and then get up.”

So what happened to the Lawsuit then? In mid-September 2017, Lewis said that she dropped the lawsuit against LA fitness in return for monetary compensation.
