Jessica Simpson, 39, has had a turbulent life with many professional and personal ups and downs. Now, after 12 years of silence, she decided to share some of the most personal and shocking details from her life. Back in 2017, she started her path to being sober, when she also started writing a book.
“I thought I was too young to write a paper. I didn’t realize everything I had to say until I was actually connected to it through music and writing. When I started to go through the depth of the pain I was experiencing, I realized I was pretty much on the ground. It was 7:30 in the morning and I was already drinking.”
Regarding her children, she “was afraid that they would see me in this form,” referencing her state during that day. She was also ashamed of seeing her children and was afraid to look at them the next morning since she knew she had failed them.
In this honest interview, the singer recalled all of her struggles. She said that she decided to talk with her closest friends, which helped her realize she needs to see a professional. Simpson also said that in her early childhood when she was only six years old, she was the victim of bullying by her peer, a family friend with whom she often stayed.
All of this helped her take control of her life and be there for her husband and children.
