Jacqie Campos once confessed to drug use
When you are a star kid, a lot of eyes will be on you. Likewise, ever since her mom Jenni made it big in the Latin music industry, her kids became a center of attention.
Now, this center of attention thing gives out more harm than anything else. Back in 2013, Jacqie released a line of t-shirts designed by herself. At the time she had joined hands with Christian brands NOTW.
When Campos released the line of t-shirts she also shared a heartfelt message alongside it. In the message, Jacqie opened up about her traumatic past, promiscuous lifestyle, and drug addiction. In a big testimony, she mentioned how she started having a sexual relationship from a young age. Because of this she also became pregnant with her first child at just the young age of 15.
In addition, she also revealed her drug addiction and how her lifestyle took her to places she never imagined. From attending rave parties to indulging in ecstasy, Jacqie did it all.
Nevertheless, Campos maintained that she gave up all of her hedonistic lifestyles upon finding God.
Jacqie Campos had a dramatic weight loss
In 2018, Jacqie came out with her dramatic 70-pound weight loss. In one of the episodes of the show, The Riveras, Jacqie mentioned how she shed a staggering 70-pound in order to make her life get back on track.
As for what was the inspiration behind her dramatic transformation, she said,
“What motivated me is my children. I was starting to see that I didn’t have enough energy to be a good mom, and I wanted to be a good example.”
She further added,
“As you can see in my social media, I’m staying focused. I don’t work out all the time but when I can — and I’m just eating healthy. It actually makes me feel better. I just have more energy now, so I think I’m going to keep doing it.”
