Tila says it was “flashbacks” not tequila that caused her to strip naked and dance around before an army of online fans for hours while ranting against the world – and she has a problem with Rihanna too.

The bisexual “Shot at Love with Tila Tequila” star acknowledged late Thursday that she had “kinda flipped out a little bit” on her Ustream webcast, TMZ reported

Tequila, whose real name is Tila Nguyen, attributed the meltdown to “anxiety” rekindled by recently filing a $1.5 million suit against ex-boyfriend and San Diego Chargers lineman, Shawne Merriman. Tequila has accused the NFL star of choking and imprisoning her last September.

Merriman has maintained that he was just trying to keep Tequila from driving home drunk after a night partying. Tequila sued Merriman after San Diego prosecutors declined to file charges in the case.

On Wednesday, the reality star reportedly called Merriman a “woman beater” while referring to herself as “an angel” in the steamy streaming video, which has since been taken down.

"People call me an attention whore .. or whatever ... but excuse me I'm a grown ass woman and I'm confident in myself ...I think a woman's body is a beautiful thing ... that's why I'm a lesbian ... I was born naked ... anybody who is against that is gay and in denial," she said, TMZ reported.

When a cameraman from the gossip site caught up with Tequila the next morning, the petite model and musician said she was feeling much better.

“You know, I couldn’t sleep and uh, I started getting anxiety,” she said. “I’m doing ok. I hope that everybody just gives me a second change and supports me. They didn’t even give me a fair chance last time.”

In fact, Tequila had a theory for why, she said, many didn't believe her initial account of what went down that night with Merriman – It’s all Rihanna’s fault.

“You don’t see Rihanna going and telling about her and Chris Brown,” Tequila said she's been told.

“No offense to Rihanna [but] because of what she did, it sends out a message to everyone that when you get beat or abused -- keep your mouth shut.”
