Jada Pinkett Smith Admits Addiction Issues – Cocaine Messed Up Her Past
Jada Pinkett Smith is not an actress who has much of a filter during interviews, and she’s proving that yet again. She opens up about her past and history with addiction, and unlike other actors and actresses, doesn’t bother hiding her history.
She wrote that she had ‘many addictions‘ in her life on her Facebook page, and she added, “Yesterday I turned one year older, and I reflected on where I have been and where I am now. What I learned about myself is this, when I was younger I was not a good problem solver, meaning I had a very difficult time with dealing with my problems in life. I had many addictions, of several kinds, to deal with my life issues, but today, at 42, I have my wisdom, my heart and my conscience as the only tools to overcome life’s inevitable obstacles.”
Well, good for Jada. Now, she’s a multi-millionaire producer and actress, and she lives a stable family life with her husband and children. Of course, she has to deal with the rumors and tabloids, but it’s better than still being addicted to drugs, no? It’s interesting that Jada would be so open about her past, but what does she have to lose? This way, no tabloids beat her to the story, and she gets to control the message.
