Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz is coming clean about his history with addiction!
In a recent Rolling Stone interview, the musician and father admitted that after FOB went on hiatus in 2009, he became more dependent on prescription pills — specifically Xanax and Klonopin — which he took for anxiety.
"I was probably physically and mentally addicted. It started from insomnia and anxiety from flying, then it spiraled. I felt like a loser already. I'd basically gone from being the guy in Fall Out Boy to being the guy, who, like, hangs out all day. I didn't see how I'd ever come out on the other side."
Unfortunately, his substance abuse only worsened when his wife and baby mamma Ashlee Simpson divorced him in 2011.
The rocker shared:
"I was scared of everything. I thought there were always people listening to me. Like, I had my house searched for bugs. It was crazy."
Yikes! That sounds like some INTENSE self torture!
But, for the sake of his health (both physical and mental) AND for his son Bronx, Pete is apparently conquering his addiction through therapy.
