Kai Jenkins’s Mother Was On Cocaine During The Time Of His Birth
On December 2016, Danniella Westbrook’s son Kai Jenkins exclusively revealed about what it was like to have a drug addict mother and how he still suffers flashbacks from when she almost died after an overdose of cocaine when he was just four.
Not only that but Kai’s mother Danniella exposed him to cocaine while giving birth to him. In an interview with The Sun Danniella confessed that she notoriously sniffed a line during her first-born’s labor in 1996, which coincided with the height of her problem.
Despite this, Kai still forgives his mother for her chronic substance misuse and, as a result, she vows never to touch drugs again. Speaking to the Daily Star, Kai exclusively added that he fears for his mother’s life and has even lost friends to overdoses. He mentioned:
“I’m incredibly lucky that it hasn’t affected me. But it’s part of my life and I can’t go back and change it. I like to forgive. Everyone deserves another chance. However, I am anti-drugs. I don’t even take sleeping tablets or paracetamol. I don’t drink alcohol too.”
Kai’s generous attitude truly welcomed his mother, Danniella, who has relapsed several times over the past 20 years.
