Three wicker baskets were piled high, filled with wrapped gifts, tied together with ribbon – with the presents was a card from Simon that read: Thinking of you at this difficult time.

Inside, they contained edible goods, Calvin Klein clothing and cosmetics, according to Scarletts images.

The 20-year-old said on the show that she received hospital treatment to remove embers in her eye after helping her brothers family escape a fire in their mobile home on Monday.

Speaking in the VT ahead of her performance, Scarlett revealed: These last days have been really really tough for me. Ive had to have a few days off due to a family emergency.

My brothers home caught fire and I was running in and out of it, thats how my eye got damaged. I ran into the building.
