The actress and singer took to social media to defend her decision to fly to Canada with her husband, Mike Caussin, and their two children, Jolie, 4, and Jace, 15 months, where she is shooting a movie for a month.
“For all the hate that I’m getting right now on my feed post about leaving, No. 1, I’m not just, like, going on vacation. I’m going to film a movie. I understand other productions have shut down, but where I’m going, apparently, there’s no cases. Everything’s fine,” she said on her Instagram Stories on Friday, March 13. “I also know if I don’t show up, I could get sued.” But on Sunday she admitted to feeling some “anxiety” about the current situation. Two days later, the couple returned home with their kids after production was shut down.
