Tue, December 24, 2013 3:57pm EDT by 8 Comments

The mayor of New York’s 19-year-old daughter has just admitted to the world that she has battled with drugs and alcohol, in a new video released by her dad’s campaign team. Watch it and tell us if you’re glad she is telling her story.

Bill de Blasio‘s daughter Chiara de Blasio, 19, is sharing her struggles with substance abuse. In this new video, she claims that she has battled depression and that the more she drank and did drugs, the easier it made her cope with life.

Bill de Blasio’s Daughter Admits Drug Abuse Problems

Chiara claims that she actually went to a rehab facility in NYC to get help. Her admission is shocking but so inspiring to others going through what she is too!

“It made it easier, the more I drank and did drugs, to share some common ground with people,” Ms. de Blasio said, her voice accompanied by soft piano music. “It didn’t start out as like a huge thing for me, but then it became a really huge thing for me.”

The mayor spoke out about his daughters troubles while standing in front of his home:

“Just want to say that we are proud of Chiara,” he said. “I think if you look at this video, it speaks to a whole set of challenges that we face in our society.” He praised his daughter for speaking with the kind of “courage and clarity and with a voice that really suggests an incredible wisdom for someone who’s only 19.”

Then his wife said the following words: “I hope that everybody watches the video; I think it speaks for itself,” she said. “I sincerely hope that everybody has a safe and happy holiday season.”

The most uplifting part about all of this was when Chiara said her mother was really the one who helped her the most: “My mom was trying really hard to help me, just like, any little thing she could. My dad was doing the same but obviously he was really busy.”

We are so proud of Chiara for sharing her story!

HollywoodLifers, are you happy that Chiara is telling the world about her struggles?
