Now that Brad Pitt has over shared, again, about his past pot use, Dr. Drew has now stepped up to talk about it. Brad had told Bill Mahr that he had given up pot in order to be able to focus on being a father to his six kids.
“You have to wonder how much pot Brad was smoking. Was it a chronic problem? I don’t know. But to the extent that he had to quit because he felt it was interfering with his parenting abilities is bothersome.”
While Dr. Drew also thinks that daddy Pitt should have kept his past pot use out of the press because of his kids, he does have a few suggestions for Brad.
“Don’t lie to your kids. The horse is out of the barn. Here is what I would tell him (Brad Pitt) to say I wish I hadn’t said that, it would have been better for you to not know what I did or didn’t do. The fact is why is here is why I think you shouldn’t do it, or I would say I was so badly addicted I had to struggle with it, to stop to make sure I was available to parent you. It’s an unusual situation with this public conversation.”
I wonder what he would have to say now that Inglourious Basterds director, Quentin Tarantino, has come out to say Brad still smokes out in the house with the kids?
Dr. Drew also weighs in on the family’s constant moving.
“Multiple moves are very destructive for kids. I can’t say it’s necessarily going to harm them. They never develop any stable relationships with their peers. It’s very traumatic on many levels. A couple of VH1 programs coming up, some of the patients have moved 20 or more times.”
You mean that changing location every few months is the best thing for kids? I mean, I moved a lot growing up but NOTHING, as close to how often the Jolie-Pitts do!
So what do you think about Dr. Drew giving his two cents?
