MACKLEMORE has revealed that his seven-year-old daughter has attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings with him.

He told the Audacy Check-In podcast: “Sloane’s been to meetings with me. She asks me questions like, ‘Daddy, how’s your sober meetings going?’ We talk about it.
“And I don’t want to hide that because it’s not something that I need to feel guilt or shame or secrecy around. The whole intention is to put it out into the open … I’m not a finished product. This is what I’m working on. These are my struggles.”
Macklemore ultimately wants his kids to be aware of their family’s history, adding that it’s “important” to be honest with them.
The Thrift Shop singer explained: “These are things we m right have in our family that we have to keep an eye on. Just be honest, it’s a conversation.
“There’s no rulebook here. We’re at a new point in parenting … I think that having that conversation is important.”
Macklemore entered rehab for drugs and alcohol addiction in 2008, before suffering a relapse in 2011.
The rap star struggled with substance abuse during his 20s and he previously insisted that he wouldn’t have survived without treatment.
He said: “If it wasn’t for my pops having the ten or 12 racks [thousand] that it was when I first went to treatment and [his ability] to spend that on me, I’d be f****** dead. I wouldn’t be here right now. That’s not to be f****** dramatic, that’s just what it is. I was about to die.”
