In her own words…
On Tuesday, the Fifty Shades Freed actress relayed a message from her sister, who reveals she suffers from bipolar disorder and had a “severe episode” at the time of the incident.
As seen on Instagram:
To you, from my loving Sis: “My name is Julia Kebbel. I have bipolar disorder and suffered a severe episode at the end of January, 2018. It led to me experiencing a psychotic break from reality, during which time, I went missing with my dog, Cindy. Thanks to my wonderful family, friends, colleagues and many good Samaritans who didn’t even know me, I am now safe (Cindy too) and extremely grateful for the treatment and care I’m getting. I would like to thank every person involved in the search for us for your incredible outpouring of support and love. On my road to recovery, I am hoping to help raise awareness of mental health disorders, including fighting the stigmatization of these illnesses that affect so many. I proudly stand with you.” — With love and gratitude, Julia Kebbel.A post shared by Arielle Kebbel (@ariellekebbel) on Mar 13, 2018 at 1:12pm PDT
After her sister was found, the Gilmore Girls alum went on Twitter and thanked “the LAPD, KlaasKIDS, SERT Ministries and Anonymity Rescue” for their help.
