According to her, she spent the entire day with Karina and the actor and it was one of her best days. However, the happiness did not last very long as the two were left alone in an apartment after the day waiting for her parents.
As she waited, Dustin went to the washroom and started taking a shower. As she came out, he dropped his towel and exposed himself, completely naked in front of her. This made her uncomfortable as it was her first time seeing a man naked. Moreover, this was intentional and he was enjoying it. The situation did not go any further as her mother came downstairs and called. She shared the story only after 7 years.
