The mother of Chicago's Juice WRLD has officially sat down to speak for the 1st time since his unexpected passing last year due to an apparent accidental overdose. His mother, Carmela Wallace, sat down with ABC 7 Chicago to speak about the passing of the rapper. "It was devastating, but one thing I decided early on was, I was not going to hide the fact that he died from a drug overdose," she started.
Wallace continued, explaining how the two have had a lot of dialogue about his struggles with mental health in recent years. "I said, 'if you have anxiety, then you need to get medicated properly for it instead of medicating yourself," Wallace says she told him. "I talked to him about it. I told him my biggest fear was him overdosing on the stuff. That's why I made the decision I have to talk about it with other people. I can't keep that as a secret." Watch the interview down below.
