I think EMINEM would be a good model for her to talk with and console with .. Hey EM if you read this pick up a phone and reach out to this beautiful young lady, I bet she would listen...

Some people seriously need to refrain from the negative comments... If you were a world class athlete who could no longer do the only thing you were ever known to do, You would be depressed too--- having been a person who has recovered from depression myself , I know how dark life can seem and Jennifer doesn't need your criticism,,, just your support right now. I hope she finds God and people in her life that can help her through this.

I think that TMZ should stop speculating on what is happening to Athletes and Performers. That is how rumors get started.

Drugs and alcohol are depressants.
Consume them, and you get depressed.
Family own Carlsberg beer or something.
Probably got an early start.

Poor thing, I hope she can get straightened out as she's had substance abuse problems for many years. I thought she was over all that but it sounds like she relapsed.This is an all too common problem these days.

So I'll just say feel better, get well..we all miss u.
To the other people who made posts here, talking about responsibility,weed,pill popper etc...thousands of people end up in ERs every year in the United States due to over dosing, wrong dosing, drug interactions..people like me and you.. and patientso already in hospitals end up being misdosed by MD's and/or nurses.
Jen only gets noticed because she was a great tennis star.

Jennifer was hooked on his c@ck. She played games and toyed with Dale for years. She would tell her friends,"I am not with Dale..Oh please!" 15 minutes later she was on her tennis playing knees.
