ANTM Model Jael Strauss is a “Full-Blown Meth Addict” (VIDEO)
Yikes. Jael Strauss took sixth place on America's Next Top Model Cycle 8 — the one where Jaslene Gonzalez won — back in 2007. Now the 28-year-old is reportedly suffering from an addiction to meth, and she's being featured on the Thursday, September 13 episode of Dr. Phil.
In an episode preview, Dr. Phil refers to Jael as a "full-blown meth addict," but she physically resists coming to the set and doesn't seem to want Dr. Phil's help. The show looks pretty intense.
While on ANTM, Jael was still reeling from a friend having overdosed the week before. So it sounds like drugs have been a part of her world for a long time.
We hope Dr. Phil's treatment works but, if not, hopefully she can get help off television. Good luck, Jael.
