Exclusive: Jazmine Sullivan Considered Drug Use To Deal With Abuse
In 2011, Jazmine Sullivan announced she was taking a break from music. What was supposed to be a month long hiatus, turned into three years, but now she’s back!
With the first single “Dumb”, Sullivan re-introduced herself to the masses and had folks buzzing about her return. Now with her new single “Forever Don’t Last”, the powerhouse performer is explaining that an abusive relationship is why she stepped away from music in the first place.
“Everything kinda just became too much at the time. I was dealing with that relationship and it was really coming to a close, but I was having trouble with ending it and having to go and perform and smile for everybody, it all became too much,” Sullivan told HipHollywood exclusively. While chatting in our HH Loft, Jazmine also revealed that she almost turned to drug use to get over her break-up. “I just remember they feeling of feeling helpless and just feeling bad and wanting to be ‘lifted’ out of that space.”
