Former Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star K. Michelle has been pretty open about her life -- from her body modifications to her feuds with other people in the industry. During an interview on HOT 97’s Morning Show with (possible former fling) Ebro, K. Michelle opened up about another part of her life people may not know about — her struggles with alcohol.
“I really did have a drinking problem and it caused a lot of issues,” K. Michelle told Ebro.
Kay went on to discuss that she began drinking heavily once she landed her first record deal. “From my first deal to now, I drank every single day,” she explained. “My first deal, I drank every single day, all day. Like straight from the bottle.I drank Jack Daniels with no chaser, no nothing, just the bottle to the head. And that took a toll on me.”
The singer went on to say that she just didn’t like the person she was when she was drunk, and saw a bit of that drunken behavior while she was on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.
“You know, I looked at it and just saw a lot of hurt and I did drink everyday with it. So you ask yourself was it the liquor, was it the hurt, and then you realize that it was everything. I just know what I can’t do.”
Though Kay admitted that she still drinks — she says only to become the “cute, fun, tipsy” K.Michelle — she did say that she’s looking to curb her overall drinking for the sake of her son and possible future kids.
“My son is now in this cool phase…and I’m looking at him like ‘Oh my God, my son’s [a little man]’ and that’s a lot. And that makes me think about my future and me wanting other kids and I can’t tear up my insides drinking Jack Daniels and fighting and getting angry.”
We think it’s so brave for Kay to speak out about her struggles, and we wish her the best on her road to recovery.
