He told the host, “The work dried up pretty quick, nobody would hit me with a barge pole because I had to do with Big Brother.” I lost everything.
“Everything went wrong, it didn’t go as planned. I had all this money and I didn’t know what to do with it. I put it on the wrong things. I was homeless after I had so much money, it’s easy to live with, easy to live in. Fame pushed me in a direction that I didn’t want to take, I didn’t like it.
“I got into drugs 15 years ago, always been a party animal, was addicted to ketamine. I went to get proper help for my addiction.
