Jeremy London: Addiction Affected Relationship With Son


While everyone else was drooling over Charlie and Bailey, my heart belonged to Julia’s boyfriend Griffin. What am I talking about? Party of Five of course! Unfortunately, Jeremy London, who played Griffin, took a wrong turn in life that he said affected his marriage, his career and, most important, jeopardized his relationship with his son, Lyrik, 3.  His success, which also included a role in 7th Heaven, led to his spiral downward into a prescription drug addiction.

“I was treated like royalty,” says London, 37. “It was hard for my brain to accept.”

London sought treatment in September, partly to prove he could be  a good parent, and now sees his son twice weekly.

There were times I didn’t care if I died,” he says. “I felt like I was losing everything.” Currently going through a divorce, he says: “I’m learning it’s much easier to deal with life with a clear head. There are so many things I wish I could have done differently.”
