The 42-year-old actress was a guest on Tuesday's episode of "Today with Hoda and Jenna," where she stood behind her decision to enter into a relationship with the "Creed 3" actor despite the controversy that surrounded him at the time.

On the show, co-host Hoda Kotb asked if any of her friends suggested that she wait "to see how everything kinda shakes out" with Majors' assault trial before going all in with him.

"Uh, yeah every friend advised me, but at the end of the day, one thing I know is I can always look at myself in the mirror when I trust my spirit, when I trust God, when I ask God, and when I move to the beat of my own drum," she explained, per Page Six.

"I can always look and say, 'OK, I'm proud of that.' No matter whatever happens, I have peace in my heart, and I have harmony in my heart," she added.
