'Floribama Shore' and Korti Gilson are two names that are often used in the same sentence. Even though MTV propelled a bunch of 20-somethings to fame when they aired their scandalous lives on TV, of the lot, Korti's narrative continues to be the most controversial. 

She was mostly absent on Season 3 before quitting the show altogether after an intense episode of a panic attack, which was painful to watch. She was in tears and inconsolable. This was preceded by a medical emergency, which required her to bow out of the show briefly to get her tonsils removed.

Kortni returned to the show to find peace in the chaos that was the beach house but possibly never expected it would turn out to be a complete downward spiral for her that came with a sense of hopelessness and anger. Between a long-distance boyfriend and a disgruntled ex, she was not in a good space and therefore decided to take a break from 'Floribama Shore' to seek help.

But was that all that was on her mind when she decided to quit? Kortni had reportedly suffered sexual abuse in her teens and she had not dealt well with it. There were meth and alcohol involved. In a tell-all interview with Dr Drew Pinsky, the reality TV star revealed she was raped by her friends when she was 16.

"They ripped my shirt off and I only had one arm because one of them was on top of me. It was awful. I also had a boyfriend at that time and he would call me a hoe and a s**t," Kortni described as she teared up.

She had never opened up about the horrific experience before this. The cast and crew were in shock when she imploded hearing about Nilsa Prowant's arrest. It all came back to her and, at once, Kortni experienced a lot of negative emotions, which led her to shut down for a few hours.

She wanted to be left alone to process her thoughts. Next, we know, she is headed home, hoping to heal her mental health. So, do we see Kortni return to the series? Let's just say she has taken an extended hiatus and fans will have to wait for more updates from her before.
