Despite their tumultuous divorce in 2006, Isabella's parents put aside their differences. Although seemingly distant, Jean and Michael came together to celebrate Isabella's health milestone.

The divorce had been finalized after a lengthy court battle, with Jean seeking $14 million under their prenup. The trial highlighted financial disputes and personal conflicts, but both parties remained composed amid the legal drama. Several years after their divorce, Michael found new love with Kayla.

"I'm kind of scared, like once I'm done, how am I gonna go back to normal life? Cause I feel like there's always going to be another treatment or something I have to do, I don't know... but that's a later problem, and otherwise I'm doing good," Isabella revealed.

The Sephora model also disclosed a side effect of her chemotherapy: memory loss. "In the hospital, I don’t remember Tuesday because I’m given this drug to protect my hearing, and just because I have a reaction to it, they give me Ativan. And for some reason, this happened last time too, I can’t remember a single thing about that day," she recounted.
