Who is tyra dating now
"Sometimes we hold these celebrities up to a higher standard, but we have to look at her as a human being and understand that she is no better or no different than any other girl," Tyra says.
"She is just as easily pulled into the cycle of abuse of going back." "I think we need to send love to both of them," Oprah says.

Friends say high school senior and cheerleader Charney Watt was one-of-a-kind. "She was also a leader in her community, and being a cheerleader, you have to influence other people.Brittany says she was just 16 years old when she met her abuser.At first, she says, their relationship seemed perfect."For him to be healed, and for her to be healed also." Tyra says she knows the cycle of abuse all too well.
While in her 20s, Tyra says she was emotionally abused. "[She said:] ' You have to do this on your own. But I will not tell you to leave, and I will not cut you off from him, because you'll just run out in the middle of the night and go straight back.'" Tyra says she then had to make a plan for herself—which is what she says every woman in a similar situation needs to do.
Charney's ex-boyfriend Gary Daniel has been charged with her murder and has not yet entered a plea.
