‘I’ve not really spoken about this much, or at all, actually,’ Kirsten said in the video from the passenger seat of an automobile.

‘Less than 48 hours ago, I had brain surgery, hence the neck brace,’ she continued, gesturing to the green brace she wore.  

‘It was on the lower portion of my brain,’ she added, going on to specify that the cyst was ‘not cancer, I want to clarify that right now before the Internet, like, goes crazy wild with rumors about this!’
