Jessica Simpson Opens Up About Her Struggles With Alcohol Addiction

Jessica Simpson is getting candid about her struggles with addiction in a brand new interview on Today.

Airing tomorrow, January 29, the 39-year-old singer sits down with Hoda Kotb to open up about her addiction to alcohol.

“I had started a spiral and I couldn’t catch up with myself…and that was with alcohol,” she shared. “I would say it openly to everyone. ‘I know. I know, I’ll stop soon. I’ll cut back.’ For me to cut back, like I’m an all or nothing girl, and so I didn’t know it was a problem until it was.”

Jessica added that she completely lost herself in alcohol and always had to have a cup of something in her hand.

“I completely didn’t recognize myself…I always had a glitter cup,” she says. “It was always filled to the rim with alcohol. I just realized that I had to surrender.”

“It was time. I had to give it up and I was ready. I’m not going to miss another day.”

Check out a preview of her interview below and stay tuned for the full video:
