“16 and Pregnant” Season 5 Star Jordan Cashmyer Admits to Heavy Drug Use: ‘It Just Completely Ruined My Life’
It’s been nearly two years since we first met Jordan Cashmyer on the fifth season of MTV’s 16 and Pregnant. A lot has changed for the mother of Genevieve in that time, and The Ashley has tried to keep you posted on her life. In a new blog post, however, Jordan opened up about the life she’s been living since the show aired, and was candid about her struggle with hard drugs, mental illness and life working as an exotic dancer.
Jordan wrote that her life started to go in a downward spiral after she gave birth to her daughter.
“I suffered from very bad post-partum depression. While trying to get this issue under control, I started working at a [strip] club, a place that would completely alter my life in ways I never thought,” she wrote. “For the past two years I have struggled with addiction…I practically used my body as a trashcan and would put whatever was given to me in my body.”
