Speaking to the Daily Mail, Natalie explained the context of the photo that had spread online.

“Firstly, I’d like to say that I’m sorry if this image surfacing has caused any offense. It is a photo from 2008 for a TV show in Namibia,” she shared. “The tribe I was living with painted my skin as part of an initiation ceremony and an acceptance into their culture.”

Natalie continued, “Never in a million years did I think that this would be offensive, in fact, I felt honored that they would initiate me. However, with the lessons that we are all learning in today’s climate, it is important that I recognize that this is potentially hurtful. My deepest and most sincere apologies.”

Henry and Natalie went public with their relationship earlier this year, and Henry wrote a lengthy letter to fans who kept speculating about his personal life.
