Instead of grabbing headlines for all of the movies she acted in, she started grabbing headlines for all the wrong reasons.
The pressure of becoming so famous so quickly at a young age, coupled with a tumultuous home life, had devastating effects on Drew.
At the age of 9, Drew’s parents got divorced. Her father was abusive and checked out, while her mom was more of a friend than a parent to her.
Speaking to Norm Macdonald on his Netflix show “Norm Macdonald Has a Show”, Drew explained, “I had a mom, but she was more like my best friend.”
“She was like, ‘Do you want to go to school and get bullied all day, or do you want to go to Studio 54?'”
“And I was like, ‘Yes, absolutely! I don’t want to spend the day with these little f****** who are just awful.’ Kids are so mean.”
