Kirk Franklin Says Sister’s Sex Assault Triggered Adult Film Addiction
Gospel singer Kirk Franklin may appear to have always been on the straight and narrow prior to confessing his addition to freaky flicks years ago, but in a recent Shade 45 radio interview on “Sway In The Morning”, Kirk made a few more bombshell revelations about his rough upbringing and how it shaped the not-so-good choices he made as an adult.
On his difficult upbringing and what led him to change his life:
“I was adopted when I was 4 by a 64-year old lady and we were raised up in really difficult times. Standing in line getting the block cheese, getting the tough jeans and everything. I had a sister that had a real bad drug problem and she spent over a decade in prision….and pr*stit*tion…and so, you know we, we lived that life. And it was a difficult life.
When I was 15 , my dude got killed and when he got killed, that’s when I got closer to faith and developed my own relationship with the Lord. But, we still lived there,, and so at 17 I got a young lady pregnant and dropped out of school. For about a couple of years, was sleeping in the car and you know, kinda got into a little bit of trouble…had to spend some nights locked down. So, while my faith life is the thing that changed me, I still didn’t change who I was as far as how I look or talk because I don’t think that that’s what people should do. God looks at the character of your hearts [and not how you look or talk.]
