But the one-time wild child has put that dark period behind her. She’s in recovery, in school, and parenting her baby girl, Seyah, who was born last year.
And, with her family’s support, Kidd now speaks to others battling addiction in the hopes of inspiring them to get sober too.
“The experience that I went through, I had to go through in order to help others,” Kidd said. “I talk to women. I share my story…This is a topic that no one likes to address.”
Staying sober isn’t easy, Kidd said, and drugs’ lure will be something she’ll always have to contend with. But she’s trying to be strong for the sake of her baby daughter.
“She’s my heart,” Kidd said of the tot. “She’s my motivation. She looks just like my father. She’s a blessing.”
