Celebrity Big Brother 2012: Jasmine Lennard was on the “verge of a nervous breakdown” and suicidal before CBB
As fans of Celebrity Big Brother will know, housemate Jasmine Lennard went totally off the deep end after she was nominated on Friday night – in face to face nominations – by Prince Lorenzo, Martin Kemp and Danica Thrall.
Branding Danica “a prostitute” she also hit out at Lorenzo, calling him a “pr*ck” before telling him to “f**k off.”
She also had a go at Martin, telling him that she was furious he nominated her after she’d made an effort to speak to him, and wouldn’t be placated when he tried to explain it’s just “a game.”
Then as we reported yesterday, she lashed out yet again at Danica, saying that she’s an “escort” and asking, “Aren’t your parents ashamed of you?”
Which, as it turns out was especially hurtful as Danica’s mother died of cancer when Danica was a teenager.
However, according to the Daily Star Sunday, even before she went into the pressure cooker environment of CBB, Jasmine was “on the verge of a nervous breakdown.”
Good plan to go on CBB then…
Speaking to the paper before she went into the house, Jasmine – who has apparently been suicidal in the past – said, “I feel I’ve got nothing to lose any more.
“I’ve had a really hard few years. It’s been very, very dark and I’m just glad I got out of it alive.
“I just need to focus on keeping my sh*t together.”
Of her thoughts about suicide, she said that she hadn’t considered it since her son Phoenix was born two years ago.
She said, “I haven’t considered ending my life since he was born. He keeps me going.
“The most I can do now is go to bed to cry for an hour. And then I get the f**k up and I carry on.”
Phoenix’s father, Shifty Shellshock, the front man of US band Crazy Town – whose real name is Seth Binzer – was sentenced to three years probation last month for battering a girlfriend and possessing drugs.
Recalling their affair, Jasmine said, “It was incredibly bad. He has a history of violence and criminality and a history of drug abuse.
“The relationship left me on my knees. My confidence really took a beating.”
The paper adds, “Jasmine shot to fame on reality show Make Me A Supermodel when her bad behaviour saw her axed by producers.”
She said, “Most of the time I’m huge-hearted and entertaining. But 20% of the time I can’t control myself.
“I disgrace myself quite a lot. A few hours or days later I reflect back and I do have a conscience. But I have very bad anger management issues.
“I haven’t actually been diagnosed with bipolar but I have that kind of behaviour, a loss of control in the way that I’m feeling.
“I have these spectacular moments when I’ve let myself down so badly because I’m raging.
“I have been in a position in the past few years where I haven’t had money full stop for food or milk or nappies.
“I have been working – I had no choice when I found myself pregnant. I was on my arse and I went back to my mother’s spare bedroom.
“I’m not interested in the fame – I want to be rich and it’s for my son.”
And finally, of her affair with Simon Cowell, she said, “I’m worried about being defined by relationships that I’ve had.
“But this opportunity is not about any single person that I’ve had a relationship with.”
To be honest, I think for the sake of everyone in that house, Jasmine needs to go Wednesday. Do you want to see her leave?
