DETROIT -- A woman who made international headlines for allegedly squatting in a Detroit home and living alongside its owner and her young daughter said Tuesday that she has left and will be moving her possessions out.

Heidi Peterson told FOX 2's Taryn Asher last week that when she returned to her house after several months, Missionary-Tracey Elaine Blair had moved in and wouldn't leave.

"She's confused.  She doesn't know my motives.  She thought that I was going to take her property, but I wouldn't do that because I wouldn't be blessed by God.  I wouldn't have good luck if I take this property knowing that she has an interest in it," Blair said.

"My thoughts are that this is not the first time that she's moving out, so what's going to stop her from coming back?" said Peterson.

"This is my property.  I bought it.  I don't want people coming here and reconstructing my property, and I don't appreciate the City of Detroit workers saying that it's not a crime to damage my property and that by cutting down all my bushes and trees that she was doing a good job."

Blair claimed she and Peterson are just two friends have a disagreement.

Blair declined to say where she's living now, citing security concerns as she campaigns for president as a write-in candidate.
