Teen Mom 3’s Matt McCann Opens Up About Overdose: I Didn’t Try to Kill Myself
Matt McCann had us clutching our pearls when he OD'd on hard drugs (read: heroin) and was rushed to the hospital during Teen Mom 3. This hunk flatlined for over three minutes, and he's lucky to be alive. But according to Matt's baby mama, Alexandria Sekella, he may have been trying to escape his life altogether.
Apparently Matt takes issue with this theory, and he took it to Twitter to clarify a few things. "Wow. I didn't try to kill myself!" he tweeted on October 8, adding, "She said I was trying to just leave as in kill myself. I ODed because I didn't know how strong the dope was.. Not because I purposely tried to."
We're happy to know Matt wasn't intentionally trying to end his life, but the fact that he OD'd is terrifying no matter what his intentions were. Luckily, Matt got the help he needs, and he's been sober for 17 months.
While this dude still doesn't have a relationship with Alex or their daughter, Arabella, it looks like he's on the right path. Who knows, maybe he and Alex will get over the hump and start co-parenting their little lady?! Crazier things have happened on Teen Mom. Like Matt's unfortunate taste in facial hair.
In other news, Matt is currently in school and doing better than ever — and he recently got engaged to his girlfriend of one year!
