The 20-year-old actress split from the 18-year-old aspiring photographer last year after an on-off romance and Chloe admitted she found the split painful.
She told Australia's Stellar magazine: “I went through a hard year and I'm not going to hide that. I had to deal with this new level of fame while I was growing up. I was getting out of a relationship and all of it was very public. I wanted to hide.”
However, Chloe - who rekindled her romance with Brooklyn earlier this year - revealed that her family had encouraged her not to hide away.
She said: “They were like, ‘That’s all great that you want to go away - but you can’t. You are your own person. You're going to have to deal with this sort of thing.’ I felt like things were falling apart, like my head and heart weren't in the same place. Things started to change when I saw I have the power within to change them.”
