Los Angeles: Rapper Kanye West has revealed that he’d been exposed to p*rn from a young age and was addicted to s*x after his mother died in 2007. In an interview to Zane Lowe for his Apple Music Beats 1 show, West opened up about his p*rn and s*x addiction, reports usmagazine.com.
The “Gold digger” hitmaker said: “Playboy was my gateway into full blown p*rnography addiction. My dad had a Playboy left out at age 5, and it’s affected almost every choice I made for the rest of my life. From age 5, to now having to kick the habit. And it just presents itself in the open, like it’s OK. And I stand up and say, you know, it’s not OK.”
West shared that God helped him beat the addiction.
“With God, I’ve been able to beat things that had a full control of me. That Playboy that I found when I was 5 years old was written all over the moment that I was at the MTV Awards with the Timberlands, the Balmain jeans – before people were rocking Balmain jeans – and the Hennessy bottle,” he said, referring to the infamous 2009 MTV Video Music Awards where he interrupted Taylor Swift on stage.
“That was such a script out of a rockstar’s life. My mom had passed a year before, and I had said, ‘Some people drown themselves in drugs. And I drown myself in my addiction’,” he added.
