Heidi N Closet shocked viewers with her decision to leave All Star’s 8. Fans speculated something was up in an episode after the queens Snatch Game performance.
Kahanna Montrese complained about N Closet seemingly making the Snatch Game even harder for her. Right after this situation was hashed out between them, N Closet was caught up in another drama about Kandy Muse allegedly saying that she was planning to eliminate Jimbo from the competition.
While Heidi confirmed that she did hear this from Muse, and asked Alexis Michelle to back her up, Michelle did not fully confirm what was said. Ultimately, Heidi decided to leave, telling Kandy backstage: “I need my peace. I need my joy. I’ve lost it here.”
Replying to a fan via Twitter, Heidi put her decision to quit All Stars 8 was down to “mostly mental health” and “how messy the girls were being.”
Heidi also added that since filming she had dealt with “sadness, depression and anger”, before reminding fans: “I’m not perfect but I’m growing”.
So through out the last 9 months I dealt with sadness, depression, and anger and through that I did make a diss track but THANK U to my amazing partner and group of friends that helped me through that and reminded me about peace and love. I’m not perfect but I’m growing ❤️— Heidi N Closet (@HeidiNCloset) June 3, 2023
Heidi continued: “If you’re not happy with something then make the change yourself. That’s what the LGBTQIA+ community has been doing since the first brick was thrown at stonewall and even before.”
She also revealed how Beyonce ultimately reassured her about her decision to leave the competition prematurely, writing:
