The model and actor Saheefa Jabbar Khattak have finally taken out time to address the issues concerning her drug problems that have surfaced over social media. In a recent turn of events, the news of Saheefa taking drugs surfaced on the internet, and since then it has been blown out of proportion.
The ace model has finally decided to come forward and describe the situation as is. She lashed out at media houses and critics on taking her words and using them in the wrong way. She angrily shared that her words have been taken out of the snippets of conversations and used in a clever work.
Clarification of Her Drug Problem
Saheefa is one of those models who has always been open and straight-forward in what she believes. Her opinions have been second to no one. She took to her Instagram this week to lodge into a lengthy explanation about her ‘drug problem’ and how it has become an elephant in the room for her.
While talking about why she started drugs, she said:
“I was on drugs due to depression and pain which I couldn’t tolerate at that moment.”
How She Started Taking Drugs?
Defending herself of the outrage that she has received after confessing to drug issues at the earlier stage in her life, she continues:
“Anyone of my (that) age would be inclined to, and I am not ashamed of myself because I have a story to tell. I came out of it stronger – it’s not like none of you were ever indulged into this.”
Explaining the reason that caused her to go down this path, she said:
“I took a semester off from university so I could get a grip over my life. I was under the process of self-healing and in that process, I worked as a model. In my initial two months, I was on the cover of a magazine and also in the fashion week, so I didn’t feel the need of going back to university and at that moment, when my career had just started I had to put my studies on hold…”
What Does She Think About Herself?
Saheefa is a strong woman who does not allow the opinion and comment of others to have an effect on her. This is why, she doesn’t feel shameful of what she had to go through, and buckle up others who have gone through the same:
“I am proud of each and every one of you who came out of it stronger and a better version of yourselves. And those who couldn’t, you will eventually, Insha’Allah. Stay strong and keep trying. Your battle is a little harder than us all but you’ll survive, don’t worry. Prayers your way.”
Responding To Her Critics
While signing off her Instagram session, Saheefa Jabbar Khattak left a final message for all those who took her earlier interviews and twisted them to defame her:
“I wanted to say this for a while – please don’t watch snippets of old clips and try to make news out of them. Try and get to know the real deal.
“I am way past that time when I want to answer each one of you. Just know that you guys are pathetic people for spreading untrue content just for the sake of likes and reach.”
We send more power and love Saheefa’s way. She definitely is a woman of steel.
