We can’t even begin to imagine Miche├â┬íl Neeson‘s pain.

On the sixth anniversary of his mother Natasha Richardson‘s 2009 death, Miche├â┬íl is speaking on out on how he dealt with her tragic passing.

Unsurprisingly, Neeson struggled to cope with the loss. Unfortunately, he turned to narcotics to deal with the pain.

The 19-year-old revealed:

“I was going out, partying a lot, looking for self-gratification. I wanted to be the man, doing these drugs. Everybody said, ‘This kid has lost his mum, that’s where the problem comes from’. And I was like, ‘No, it isn’t, I just like to party’. But looking back, I realize it was a delayed reaction.”

So sad.

Luckily for Micheál, he had the support of his father Liam Neeson and his younger brother Daniel during that turbulent period of his life.

With the encouragement of his family, Natasha’s son checked into rehab and now he’s the proud owner of a fashion gallery in London called Maison Mais Non.

We’re glad Neeson was able to get himself back on track. We wish him the best of luck with the gallery and his sobriety!
