In an emotional interview to Britain"s the Sunday Mirror, Mitch revealed that his daughter damaged her lungs by smoking crack cocaine and cigarettes. "With smoking the crack cocaine and the cigarettes her lungs are all gunked up. There are nodules around the chest and dark marks. She's got 70 percent lung capacity," he said. "The doctors have told her if she goes back to smoking drugs it won't just ruin her voice, it will kill her.
"She's got emphysema. It's in its early stages, but had it gone on for another month they painted a very vivid picture of her sitting there like an old person with a mask on her face struggling to breathe," he added.
