Actor Tyler Posey, who recently came out as sexually fluid on his OnlyFans page, says that he has broken his months of sobriety from marijuana and alcohol.
“I’m not completely sober anymore. It’s definitely not anywhere near where I was,” Posey said on Tuesday’s episode of the “Just for Variety” podcast.
The “Teen Wolf” star, 29, expressed how his time being sober helped him to mature and find clarity.
“I felt like since I was about 14 years old, I’ve stunted my mental growth from just not dealing with anything and dealing with it with weed or drugs or booze,” he said. “The time that I was sober, I felt like it kick-started me growing up and sped up the process of me growing up and dealing with the stuff that I haven’t been dealing with forever.”
He added that he was “full on sober” for about five months and was “just really trying to take care of: himself with daily meditating and prayer.
“Not to anything religious,” he clarified, adding, “just a higher power and just feeling like something bigger than me in the world.”
Posey also discussed his decision to come out as sexually fluid on his OnlyFans account in October 2020, saying that he was just being honest with fans.
“I did this live on OnlyFans and they were asking me stuff that horny people would ask you. ‘Have you been with a man?’ ‘Have you been with the opposite sex?’ ‘What was it like?’ And I was just being honest about it, because no one’s ever asked me before,” he said.
The actor said that his decision to come out was a “split-second decision.”
“I didn’t think about how it would be received or what kind of press I would get on it, but I woke up the next day and it was all these tabloids about me coming out as pansexual. I didn’t label that,” he said.
Luckily, Posey’s dad was very accepting.
“He was totally cool about it, and I was like, ‘Yeah, man. I just didn’t want to hold myself back, and I had an interest in trying new things,’ and he was like, ‘Okay, well, I understand that.’”
As Page Six previously reported, Posey first opened up about getting clean in October 2020.
He was inspired to get sober after going through a “rough patch,” he revealed on SiriusXM’s “The Jason Ellis Show” in October 2020.
“I kind of fell out with everybody that I loved that I know,” Posey said at the time. “But now … I love myself for the first time in forever. Things are really, really, really good. It’s really cool.”
Posey has been open about his mental health struggles, telling Page Six in 2017 that “everyone should try” therapy, which he said he turned to in 2014 after the death of his mother and a broken engagement.
