42-year-old ‘I Love It’ rapper Kanye West has just revealed that he’s stopped boozing, but that he was at one point in his recent life – a “functioning alcoholic!”
West has publicly revealed struggles with his own mental health in the past, and in the new issue of GQ Magazine he says that many of his problems were due to alcohol. The ‘Flashing Lights’ star reveals: “I haven’t had a drink since I realized I needed to take it day by day, but I never owned up, or was even told, ‘Hey, you’re a functioning alcoholic.’ People have called me a crazy person, people have called me everything … but not a functioning alcoholic.”
He continues: “One day I was in my office working on the couture collection; and there was some Grey Goose in the fridge and I was just going to get a daytime drink, and I looked and thought, ‘Devil, you’re not going to beat me today.'” For more of Kanye West’s interview with GQ click here, and let us know: WOULD YOU EVER HAVE THOUGHT KANYE WAS AN ALCOHOLIC?
