In his Instagram video he says: “I just really had to take a look at myself and my life and the way sh*t was going and all the crazy stupid sh*t I was doing and just finally admit to myself that it wasn’t working. And I had to try something new and that thing was to not do any drugs or alcohol,” he goes on to say in another video. “It’s been a long journey discovering who I am because all the pressures that I’ve dealt with in my life — you know, being the son of my dad and everything. A couple months ago I was selling coke [and] doing coke until I couldn’t even snort it up my nose anymore because it was so clogged. I even smoked crack.” We appreciate his honesty and willingness to share his story in hopes to help others struggling with addiction.
Chet recently made headlines for allegedly trashing a hotel room in London after a wild night. He reportedly cost the hotel several thousand dollars in damages. He also was suspended from Instagram for a period of time when he was using the “N-word” in an offensive way, for which he also apologized for in his series of videos. Our thoughts go out to Chet and we hope he continues to get the help he needs.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Chet’s explanation?
