Juice WRLD’s family, still mourning the sudden loss of their beloved son, showed amazingly candor and courage when addressing his known addiction problem. According to TMZ, WRLD’smother, Carmella Wallace, provided a statement in which she dealt with her son’s obvious pain and offered how his struggle might, in fact, be a blessing to others.

“We loved Jarad with all of our hearts and cannot believe our time with him has been cut short,” Ms. Wallace told TMZ, preparing to acknowledge the elephant in the room. “As he often addressed in his music and to his fans, Jarad battled with prescription drug dependency.”

As previously reported by rolling out, Juice WRLD consumed a massive amount of prescription drugs upon learning federal agents were going to search his private plane. In addition to the pills, officials discovered upwards of 70 pounds of marijuana, codeine and three handguns on board.

“Addiction knows no boundaries and its impact goes way beyond the person fighting it,” Ms. Wallace continued. “Jarad was a son, brother, grandson, friend and so much more to so many people who wanted more than anything to see him defeat addiction.

“We hope the conversations he started in his music and his legacy will help others win their battles, as that is what he wanted more than anything.”

She concluded her statement with more positive words and a nod toward the foundation he established.

“We know that Jarad’s legacy of love, joy and emotional honesty will live on,” she said of her charismatic and talented son.
