Erika is struggling

While interacting with her followers on Instagram, "90 Day Fiancé" star Erika opened up about her struggles with her newfound fame.

During a Q&A session, one fan asked Erika whether her newfound fame had overwhelmed her, and if she missed her old normal life. The Australian reality star admitted that she had enjoyed some fun and exciting moments since becoming famous, but she confessed that it was "hard having a microscope on yourself." Erika claimed that her life under the public eye has been full of scrutiny, and she has tried to use her new platform to promote charitable causes and small businesses. However, despite her efforts, the 24-year-old has realized that she can’t please everybody.

Last week, a fan criticized "90 Day Fiancé" star Erika after she shared a video of herself getting Botox and filler injections. The fan accused her of profiting from women's insecurities by promoting cosmetic surgery.

Erika vehemently denied the allegations, and she claimed that she had not profited from sharing the video. She also told the fan that she had never tried to take advantage of women’s insecurities by promoting cosmetic surgery. Instead, Erika argued that Botox and filler injections are no different from makeup and other beauty enhancing products.

Meanwhile, rumors of Erika's new boyfriend are making rounds on social media after she uploaded a picture on Instagram.
