The pair took to Instagram last night and thanked fans for sending messages of support after reports that they had been held at knifepoint circulated in the UK press.

Last night, Kaz told her followers: "We just wanted to jump on really quickly and say thank you for all the messages we have received.

"We're leaving LA now, our cab's downstairs to go to the airport."

Liberty then said: "Obviously it was a scary incident that happened Thursday but we didn’t want it to affect the rest of our holiday so we’ve just been continuing on as normal and living our best lives.

"Obviously it’s horrible that, that happened but we’re all OK and that is the main thing, that we’re safe."

Kaz then added: "We just wanted to say thank you."

Liberty and Kaz's comments come a few days after The Sun reported that the pair were threatened with a knife last week.

A source told the tabloid: "Liberty and Kaz had been just heading to a party and got out of their car in the wrong part of the neighbourhood. Out of the blue, this woman appeared with a knife and threatened them.

"Liberty and Kaz were obviously shocked and terrified — especially because guns are legal in the US. But fortunately for them, two men who had been walking past came to their rescue and called the police.

"The girls have been left shaken up by the incident and are just surprised that it happened to them. But they’re grateful that the two men were in the right place at the right time, to help them."
