Grammy award-winning rapper Eve, who recently joined “The Talk” as a co-host, opened up on the daytime talk show this week about the time she was going through a “dark period,” and ultimately turned to pills and alcohol to “numb [her] pain.”
“At a time in my life, at a point in my life, I’d gone through, and like she says, a dark hole,” the 39-year-old said during Tuesday’s episode of “The Talk” while discussing Willow Smith’s revelation she was cutting herself after her initial musical success.
“I call it my ‘dark hole’ period, my dark period.”
“I was out of a toxic relationship, I didn’t have a TV show, I didn’t have a record deal. I was just kinda like, what is happening with my life?” explained the rapper. “So I started drinking, a lot.”
“I started drinking, and drinking, and drinking because I didn’t want to deal with my emotions,” she continued. “I didn’t have anybody to really talk to. I was even popping Xanax and drinking to numb my pain.”
