This week I completed a forty day stay at a treatment center for alcohol addiction and remain in outpatient care.
The support I have received from my family, colleagues and fans means more to me than I can say. It’s given me the strength and support to speak about my illness with others.
Battling any addiction is a lifelong and difficult struggle. Because of that, one is never really in or out of treatment. It is a full-time commitment. I am fighting for myself and my family. So many people have reached out on social media and spoken about their own journeys with addiction. To those people, I want to say thank you. Your strength is inspiring and is supporting me in ways I didn’t think was possible. It helps to know I am not alone. As I’ve had to remind myself, if you have a problem, getting help is a sign of courage, not weakness or failure.
With acceptance and humility, I continue to avail myself with the help of so many people and I am grateful to all those who are there for me. I hope down the road I can offer an example to others who are struggling.
Brad Pitt has sparked fresh dating rumours after being spotted on a night out with a female pal in LA. The actor, 54, was joined by jewelry designer and holistic therapist Sat Hari Khalsa at the Silverlake Conservatory of Music annual charity bash this week. The pair were seen smiling and laughing as they chatted closely at the event.
A clean-shaven Brad kept a low-profile in his dark flat cap and blazer, while Sat was wearing a white dress underneath a white cardigan. Some US reports said he arrived with her, but a source said they are just friends. The event was hosted by Brad’s good friend, Flea from Red Hot Chilli Peppers, who also founded the charity. Sat previously joined the Chilli Peppers on tour as their holistic nurse.
Everybody remembers the infamous kiss Britney Spears and Madonna shared at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards, but not everybody remembers that Christina Aguilera was there too.
During an interview with Andy Cohen on SiriusXM’s Radio, Cohen asked Aguilera, 37, if she felt bothered that her role in the performance didn’t get the same kind of press, even though she also locked lips with the “Like a Virgin” singer.
“It was weird,” Aguilera, who recently kicked off her Liberation Tour, admitted. “And you know why they cut it? The cut away to get Justin [Timberlake]’s reaction.”“She can have her kiss, it’s okay,” she added. Aguilera also said that she would love to see Britney again.
“I would love to reconnect somehow and have a tea date or something with Britney,” she admitted. Continuing, she remarked, “I don’t know, I think that would be really fun after all these years, both being mamma bears now.”
