She stated during an interview that ladies lie about their age because they are concerned about earning respect or feeling young.

She said; “Lying about one’s age isn’t limited to celebrities alone because a lot of people do it nowadays. Some do it because of their partners and some do it to earn respect. Others do it to seek sympathy or get job opportunities. A lot of people in different industries do it as well.
“Many hard-working single ladies do it when searching for Mr Right. In this part of the world, guys see dating an older woman as a taboo. Hence, women reduce their age most times to feel young and accepted”.
