While the LHHATL audience is just finding out about Kirk’s son Christopher, the Kirk shared with co-star Safaree Samuels that Christopher has been struggling with substance abuse for years.
“He had a little issue,” Kirk tells Safaree.
“Like legal issues?” Safaree asks.
“’No, substance issues,” Kirk says. “So for a while, I just felt like he was avoiding me. You know, he got caught up in the wrong crowd and he would say, ‘I’m going to come down and chill with you, Pops,’ but he’ll never really come. That’s when his mom told me what was going on. They didn’t tell me this s–t until it was full blown.’”
Later in Kirk’s confessional, he explained that he feels that Christopher is staying away because he may be hiding something from him. So, while Kirk was in New York City, he made it a point to see Christopher.
During their visit, Christopher, Kirk, and Ky caught up with one another. Christopher explained that he was “ashamed” to come around, but that his children are what ultimately helped him get back on track. Kirk also took a moment to reassure Christopher that he will always be there for him — through the good and bad.
