Ferreira, 25, addressed the rumors in an interview with Insider.

“I’ve seen so many different things, and a lot of it is untrue and some of it’s kind of like mundane little things,” she said.

“Sometimes, things take on a life of their own, and they’re not rooted in the truth, but it’s OK because I know it’s just out of passion and out of curiosity and all that good stuff. And I signed up for it. So, I’ll take it. I’ll take the good and the bad.”

Actress Barbie Ferreira announced she will not be returning to "Euphoria" after playing Kat Hernandez the past two seasons.
