Rapper A$AP Rocky recently revealed that he has an addiction to sex. During an interview with Angie Martinez for “Untold Stories Hip-Hop,” the Harlem-raised rapper said that he became addicted sex in his early teens as he experienced his first orgy at age 13.

Now 31, A$AP Rocky continues to have orgies and threesomes. He once told Esquire that his bed cost $100,000 because of his frequent sexual experiences.

But A$AP Rocky is not alone. According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine, between 18-24 million Americans are considered sex addicts.

Here are five Black celebrities who suffer from sex addiction.

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods made national headlines after it was revealed that he split with his first wife, Elin Nordegren. Woods reportedly admitted to sleeping with 120 women during his marriage, according to the New York Post. Woods would eventually enter rehab for his sex addiction.

Eric Benet

R&B crooner Eric Benet was once married to Halle Berry, a person that many people believe to be one of the most beautiful women in the world. However, marrying a top-notch woman could not deter Benet from cheating. The two divorced and Benet checked into a 35-day sex addiction rehab program.

Kanye West

The Chicago native revealed how he used his addiction to sex to inspire his work in an interview with Details. He spoke about having a sexual addiction at a young age and broke down the things that people will do to have sex. “Look at the drive that people have to get sex. To get dressed like this, get a haircut, and be in the club in the freezing cold at 3 a.m.,” West said. West also spoke about having a porn addiction.
