This girl better stop messing with her money (and her health and freedom) like this by not making show dates and getting busted by the cops. And this husband guy is SO not helping. Dang. I know, I know they say that "everybody" smokes pot in the Hip Hop and Rock industry but if "everybody" jumped off of a bridge would you do it too? Didn't your mothers ever teach yall rock stars ANYthing??!!
