In an interview with Zane Lowe, Kanye West opened up about his p*rn and s*x addiction and some honest confessions. He said, “Playboy was my gateway into full-blown p*rnography addiction. My dad had a Playboy left out at the age of 5, and it’s affected almost every choice I made for the rest of my life. From age 5, to now having to kick the habit. And it just presents itself in open, like it’s Ok. And I stand up and say, you know, it’s not okay.”
The 45- year -old rapper further revealed that religion helped him beat the addiction. Talking further about it he said, “With God, I have been able to beat things that had a full control of me. That Playboy that I found when I was 5 years old was written all over the moment that I was at MTV Awards with Timberlands, the Balmain jeans- before people were rocking Balmain jeans – and the Hennessy bottle.” (He was referring to an award show where had interrupted Taylor Swift on stage).
He further added, “That was such a script out of a rockstar’s life. My mom had passed a year before, and I had said, ‘Some people drown themselves in drugs, I drowned myself into my addiction (to s*x).”
