Vince Colosimo's mother breaks her silence after his drug arrest
She tells of her anguish.
As previously reported, Vince Colosimo has been arrested on drug charges and now the star's mother has opened up about how she tried to help her son.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Lina Colosimo said she pleaded with her actor son to seek help after he was arrested twice within a 12-month timeframe on ice-related drug charges.
In between tears his mother said: “We spoke to him in January when we heard he was caught with drugs and he said we have to trust him, he promised no more."
“We find out his life in the news, not from our own son who comes to see us every week... he’s always been a good boy to us. I can’t take any more, his father is sick, he worries his son is in a bad place."
“We don’t know what to do any more. I can’t sleep, I worry all the time, I can’t talk about it any more, it’s too painful what’s happening (to Vince).
“No more, he needs help.”
The Great Gatsby actor faces possible jail time after he was charged on Sunday with driving under the influence of drugs while his licence was suspended.
The 50-year-old was on a 12-month good behaviour bond after he was sentenced earlier this year for possessing methamphetamine last September.
