“You are already on the other side of this healthy and strong like it never happened. I adore you,” wrote actress Taraji P. Henson in support.

“You have a whole social media fam rocking with you Slick…..you got it girl,” a fan wrote.

Another added, “You got this. God got you.”

Many of her adoring followers have taken to her personality. Her openness and humility resonate just as loudly as her bold approach to life.

Not only does Woods have a unique style, she is transparent. Evidence of that is when she thanked Rihanna last year for giving her a platform to showcase her best self.

“My mom called me today and I told her she’s the definition of beauty, thank you @badgalriri for changing the game, reminding every little black girl she is and came from royalty and that all women are beautiful in their own damn way. A beautiful start to a new year and a fresh perspective of what beauty is… whatever tf you want it to be. #googlemebaby.”

Earlier this year she joined her boyfriend, rapper Micky Munday, on the new season of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood.
