Jamie Lee Curtis

Wow. This is powerful.

In light of new reports suggesting Prince died as a result of drug addiction, Jamie Lee Curtis penned an emotional essay about her own personal battle with painkillers.

In hopes of raising awareness about the dangers of opiate use, the 57-year-old actress wrote in Huffington Post:

"I too, waited anxiously for a prescription to be filled for the opiate I was secretly addicted to. I too, took too many at once. I too, sought to kill emotional and physical pain with pain killers. Kill it. Make it stop.

Too many of our fellow humans, famous, infamous, and not famous at all, have sought the same relief. The symbolism of James Taylor's Fire and Rain,an anthem of addiction, seems more poignant as now it is a purple rain, another loss to drug addiction."

This all must have been a long time coming…

Johnny Manziel is currently making headlines for refusing to enter rehab, but it sounds like his downfall has been in the works for a while.

Nike spokesman Brian Strong confirmed they fired the athlete way back on March 11 of last year, almost immediately after he finished rehab the first time.

As you may recall, Johnny's manager Drew Rosenhaus also dropped the former Cleveland Browns QB on Tuesday, and now we understand why — he wasn't making any money!

All of this combined with his pending domestic abuse case must be taking its toll on Johnny Football…

Get well soon, Johnny.

The first step is admitting you have a problem.

Leah Messer is far from the most stable Teen Mom in the cast, but she may actually be the wisest.

That's because the mother-of-three was self-aware enough to know that she was suffering from depression and anxiety when she decided to check into rehab over the Summer.

The MTV star stopped by Steve Harvey on Monday to speak about living in the public eye alongside Kailyn Lowry and Dr. Drew, and ended up getting surprisingly real about her mental health and the pressures that come with being a single mom.
