Cheyenne Kidd Was In Car That Veered Off The Freeway; Mom Says Drugs Not To Blame
The oldest daughter of NBA veteran Jason Kidd is lucky to be alive after she was involved in a nasty car accident in LA last week.
Cheyenne Kidd was in the passenger seat with a friend on their way to visit another friend when they somehow went off the freeway around midnight Jan. 16, her mother, Tgia, told BOSSIP.
“She doesn’t recall what happened,” Tgia told us. “I just know I was on the phone with her, and an hour later I was called to the hospital.”
However, a source with knowledge of the incident said Cheyenne may have grabbed the steering wheel, diverting the car off the freeway. The source said the move was a desperate bid for attention and a cry for help.
Kidd, the mother of a two year old, suffered a broken jaw, a fractured leg and a large gash underneath her chin. Some of her teeth had to be removed, and her jaw is now wired shut. Rods are holding part of her right leg together and is set to have reconstructive surgeries while she remains hospitalized at UCLA Medical Center.
BOSSIP’s exclusive pic shows the 22-year-old with a swollen face, a mouth full of steel and a stitched up gash across the lower part of her face.
BOSSIP has previously reported on Kidd’s battle with addiction, but Tgia said Kidd was sober during the accident, and has been so for a month. Kidd’s mother said her daughter felt like the incident was a warning to stay clean.
“She’s just reconnecting with her spiritual side, and she knows that this was a huge wake up call,” the mom said. “Even though she was on the right track, she said ‘God wants me on the right track.’”
“She’s in a good space,” she added.
