{#THESWIFTSHOW} AUGUST ALSINA REVEALS PERCOCET ADDICTION ON JADA PINKETT SMITH’S “RED TABLE TALK”

Jada Pinkett Smith can be seen on her show Red Table Talk when she’s not supporting her kids, Willow and Jaden. In a recent episode of the show on Facebook, August Alsina joined in to speak about his experience recovering from drug addiction, revealing a dependence on Percocet and weed. Back in 2014, August collapsed during a show in New York City, having multiple seizures and being in a coma for three days. Following the incident, he was prescribed Percocet by his doctors to deal with the pain and, much like some people recovering from similar injuries, he became dependant on the drug. According to the star, it was easy for him to get what he needed, saying, “I literally had an endless supply of Percs. If you asked my brother, anybody … I’m like, raining Percs. Off my body, off my house. I was literally raining pills like Skittles.”

During his Red Table Talk, August notes how he reached out to Will Smith and Jada to help him through his addiction and now that he’s recovering, he’s comfortable speaking about his experience. View the full interview here!
