X-Factor winner Alexandra saw the interview and says she is furious about the allegations made against an unnamed household member

The singing star shared how she felt “sick” as a black woman after hearing the couple run away

“I’ve seen the clips and all of the headlines – it’s heartbreaking and very disappointing,” she said

“We’re in 2021 and we’re still having these conversations. For me, as a black woman who heard this, I felt sick to the core

“When she says she’s suicidal and talks about mental health it’s mind-boggling It’s shocking that Meghan had to go through this

“I wish both of them the best and hope that they can find peace and happiness in their lives, also for them and their children”

Alexandra claimed last year to bleach her skin and change her hair so that she would “appeal to white people”

The singer, who won the TV talent show in 2008, posted a video online about her experience of racism while in show business

In the candid clip, 31-year-old Alexandra said to avoid wearing braids or an afro style and choose a hairstyle that would appeal to white audiences

She explains, “When I first won the X-Factor, I was 19 years old I was told that because you are black you have to work ten times harder than a white artist because of the color of your skin ‘

“You can’t have braids, you can’t have an afro, you can’t have anything, which is basically my identity

“I mean, I was only 19 years old. At 19 you can only understand so much, and your life has completely changed overnight
