Big Brother star Heavy D spoke to psychic Tracey Woolterton on November 15, just 10 days before it was reported he died, where he opened up about "hiding behind a mask".

During the Instagram Live session, which he shared on his page, Heavy D opened up about the way he portrays himself.

Tracey told him: "I have a barrier up [for you] where relationships are concerned."

Responding to Tracey, Heavy nodded and admitted he has a "massive barrier" up.

Tracey continued: "I feel like there's somebody there in your life, but I feel like there's a barrier and I feel like there are some choices that need to be made.

"But the angels are pushing you through a direction.

"They're pushing you through a patch."

Tracey went on to say: "I feel like sometimes you hide behind a mask – a real gentle giant they say."

Heavy D nodded once more and said "yes".

Tracey continued: "But sometimes, you're hurt inside, which you don't let others see."

"Never," Heavy D replied.

Tracey then told Heavy that she feels there is a woman around him who has been "guiding him" through this time where he's had some "dark patches".

"But you always manage to pull yourself up," she added.

"Always," Heavy D replied back.

He then appeared to mouth to his friend off-camera that it was his "mum" Tracry was referring too.
