“I’ve started going to therapy, because it’s the only person I can talk to," Billie told the publication.

Billie also confessed that "[Trust is a] huge one" for her.

She added: "Some really close friends last year that I thought I could trust completely just used the fuck out of my name. And then complained about it. I was like, 'What are y’all doing? If you’re going to dick ride me, at least enjoy the ride.' I don’t know who to trust any more.”

In May, Billie opened up about mental health for a Seize The Awkward campaign video. In the video, Biillie talked about friends who have contacted her when she needed it most and how that positively impacted her.

"There have been certain people that have texted me right when I needed to be texted, saying they loved me and and that they were thinking about me. And it really means a lot," the singer said.

Billie has played to some of the biggest crowds of her life in 2019 – Glastonbury and Coachella being just the tip of the iceberg for the young star. Fame and friendships can be tricky and Billie's openness about the situation proves just how authentic she really is.
