Jeremy London Admits His Drug Problem Ruined His Career And Marriage

Former Party of Five and 7th Heaven star Jeremy London has come clean about his battle to get clean. The twin brother of Jason London talked to People Magazine about how his prescription drug problem cost him everything, including his marriage.

London wed actress Melissa Cunningham in September 2006, and the couple welcomed their son Lyrik, now 3, soon thereafter. But he says that prescription pill abuse contributed to the demise of his marriage and career – and jeopardized his relationship with his son.

“There were times I didn’t care if I died,” he says. “I felt like I was losing everything.”

Currently going through a divorce and facing significant financial woes, London went to a rehabilitation center in September 2009 to face his drug abuse – and to prove that he can be a good father to his son, with whom he currently has twice-weekly visitation.

It’s brave for Jeremy to share his problem. Typically we only hear of addiction stories after it’s too late, but perhaps his story will help others.

    Really dude? No shit? Since coming to this site I thought drug addiction was a good thing. I thought it led to total enlightenment and an absolute oneness with the universe, and the ability to max score any video game created.

    Fuck! all that time, and money wasted.

  • Strange this post is totaly unrelated to what I was searching google for, but it was listed on the first page. I guess your doing something right if Google likes you enough to put you on the first page of a non related search. :)
