It comes after it was reported that AJ and Abbie were filming a hack for a social media on how to cut a glass bottle in half to be used as a vase when things went wrong.

The trick involves dipping a rope in a flammable chemical and wrapping it around the bottle before lighting the rope on fire.

But, the “hack” is said to have gone wrong when the wine bottle exploded in dancer Abbie’s face and set her hair and clothing alight, which caused third degree burns.
