The handwritten note contains the lines: "There's no question that life throws us curve balls, we do our best to deal with them, take the lessons and keep it moving without regrets...
"I look forward to embarking on this ride with you, unwilling to sacrifice what we believe in, taking our lessons and growing from them. Don't let one thing shake your core. Let our inspirations drive us, never steering from who we truly are...."
She also took took to Twitter to vent her feelings, writing: "Examine what you tolerate", "Goodbye muthaf*****", "You give, you get, then you give it the f*** back" and "Claps for the basic b****** (sic)"
In between posting raunchy images of herself, she followed it up yesterday, musing: "Never underestimate a man's ability to make you feel guilty for his mistakes."
