B. Simone has been placed under the microscope and, in the last couple of weeks, she's been torn apart for several comments she's made. First, people were angry at her for saying that she would never date a man who works a 9-5 job. Then, much more serious allegations came up as she was accused of plagiarising another writer's work in her book.

She is accepting full responsibility for what happened, claiming to have reached out to all of the creators her team stole work from and addressing the topic in a 3-minute long video.

"I have built my career on complete transparency and vulnerability. I have shared my lows and have celebrated my highs for the world to see, and this moment wont be any different," she writes on Instagram. "I want to be honest with you all ALWAYS! Like most creatives I outsourced a team to help me with the details, the graphics, the wording, the arrangement of my book. I trusted this team of individuals to take my vision and translate it into what I hoped to be a map towards manifestation."

She's not blaming the plagiarism on her team though. She's taking ownership as the leader of the project, holding herself accountable. 

"I have reached out directly to every content creator that was disadvantaged an I am doing everything I can to fix this issue and make everyone whole," she said. "Even though this was not intentional, I am still so very sorry to the content creators and i understand their frustration 100%. To my supporters I apologize, you trust me to deliver honesty and authenticity and although some things were done without my knowledge I am the leader and I dropped the ball. I am working everyday to be a better human, a better woman, a better professional, and to do that successfully I have to own my shit. Thank you to those of you who have supported me. I am genuinely sorry that this happened and I vow to make it right."
