The Girls Trip star visited Eritrea earlier this year for her father’s funeral.
“I felt like my heart was being healed,” she told EriTV at the time.
“I’ve been through a lot of things. I was trying to figure out, ‘Who am I?’ And now I have a way better understanding of who I am, why I’m on this earth – what my purpose is.”
