Billy Crawford gave a shocking but inspiring interview to Luchi Cruz-Valdes on the TV5 program, “Usapang Real Life.”
KAMI learned that Billy opened up in the interview about his struggle with alcoholism and depression many years ago.
According to Billy, his addiction to alcohol affected his work and made him always angry.
Worse, the singer-host even became depressed and suicidal years ago because of alcoholism. Fortunately, he was able to kick the habit after realizing its negative effects on his life and relationships.
“I would actually go to work sometimes still drunk. Yeah. I would wake up in the morning, have a shot of whisky, and do whatever I need to do. I was at the point of uncontrollable drinking.”
“Siguro, that was my kryptonite in my life. I knew it was weighing me down…
“I became very aggressive, mainitin ang ulo when I’m with alcohol.
“It took those hard falls, to be honest with you, like it took me being locked up, it took me… I was always just ready to just go.
“I was always just ready to leave this world and without any hesitations when I was depressed. When I was sad. But that’s the point, e. I didn’t have any reason to be depressed. I didn’t had any reason to be sad,” Billy said.
Billy Crawford is a singer, actor, and television host in the Philippines. He tied the knot with actress Coleen Garcia on April 20, 2018. Coleen gave birth to baby boy Amari on September 10.
In a previous report by KAMI, Billy said that he and Coleen almost left the Philippines after ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal was shut down. He explained that he needed a bigger income to support his family. However, he was given a daily show by TV5.
He also went viral due to his response to a netizen who gave him and Coleen unsolicited advice about caring for their baby. According to Billy, he and Coleen know how to care for their baby because they love him and spend every day with him.
