‘It was a really terrifying week for me and I will say that quite openly,’ Bonnie said. 

The singer said she isolated herself in her room during her court case because she was so terrified.  

Bonnie’s case was in relation to an October 2017 incident where she covered up for Matt Arnautovic. 

‘Especially something from the past being brought up, it’s something I’ve moved on from. It’s all out in the open and I can move on from that,’ Bonnie said.

The former child singing sensation pleaded guilty to failing to inform police her then-boyfriend was behind the wheel of her car when he drove off from police.  

Bonnie escaped conviction and received a good behaviour bond but said she would do it all again, albeit differently. 

‘I don’t regret anything in my life, certain things I think ‘oh I would have done it differently’. I make sure I learn from every situation,’ she said.
