Famous actor Tom Hanks had to deal with an unhappy situation. The actor’s son has entered rehab to receive treatment for cocaine addiction. Chester actually is the actor’s eldest child. The 24 year old star is known as rapper Chet Haze.
Reports reveal that Chester has actually been struggling with cocaine addiction since the age of 16. Still, it seems that this time he found the help he needed, staying sober for no less than 50 days. ”I’ve been struggling with substance abuse since I was 16 years old,” Chester revealed in a video message on Instagram.
”Finally at the age of 24 I decided to get some help. With 50 days of sobriety under my belt, I can honestly say I’m the happiest I’ve ever been,” he also claimed. Moreover, he went on to thank his family for the support he was given. ”I’m thankful for my family and everybody that cares about me, including my fans. I’ve been blessed with the programs of AA and NA which allow me to rise above this disease,” Chester revealed. “I’m learning to accept my faults and be ok with being human. If anybody that sees this struggles with addiction, feel free to reach out. Thank you all for the love and support! God is real,” he went on to say.
Initially, Chester wanted to keep his problem a secret. However, he decided to publicly talk about his addiction issues as a US tabloid found about it and planned on exposing Chester’s story. Apparently the star decided that it would be better to do it by himself. It seems that Chester wanted privacy in this story, but unfortunately he was unable to get it. However, the fact that he managed to stay sober and is committed to his recovery should definitely be appreciated.
No statements on this story have been released by Tom Hanks, but as Chester claimed, the family is 100 percent supporting him. Hopefully, the rapper will be able to overcome his addiction issues for good and will put this entire story behind him.
