“From age five til now, having to kick the habit and it just presents itself in the open like it’s OK and I stand up and say, ‘No, it’s not ok.'”

West was very close to his mother Donda who tragically died in 2007.

“You know that Playboy that I found when I was five-years-old was written all over the moment when I was at the MTV awards with the Timberlands, the Balmain jeans, before people were rocking Balmain jeans, and the Hennessy bottle.”

“It’s like that was such a script out of a rockstar’s life. My mom had passed a year before and I said some people drown themselves in drugs. And I drowned myself in my addiction [to sex].”
