Rebecca Ferguson has finally opened up about her latest trauma in which a woman that she had considered a friend was sent to prison for stealing from her.

The 28-year-old star broke down in court last month when she explained how Rachel Taylor had conned her out of more than €61,000.

In a new interview with the Mirror, the former X Factor star opened up about her struggles and how she is trying to put it all behind her.

“I finally got justice, but I’m still recovering from it all,” the former flame of Zayn Malik revealed.

“There was so much more to it, and only so much that gets said in court, and I think if people knew everything they would be quite surprised to hear how I got through it all.”

The mum-of-three admitted that she believes it was her faith in people and putting trust in them that allowed Ms Taylor to take such advantage of her.

“I’m one of those people who tries to look for the good in people, but I’ve learnt that, actually, no, some people fundamentally just are not nice.”

A court found the woman who had been posing as Rebecca’s accountant guilty of two counts of fraud and the 54-year-old was sentenced to 16 months in prison.

Rebecca has had her fair share of ups and downs, with the recent court case and a series of unfortunate relationships.

But, while the Glitter and Gold singer is still single at the moment, she says she is the happiest she has been in years.

“I’m doing the new album which I’m really excited about, and I’m just in a really good place. I am the happiest I’ve been in years.”
