In an update of our interview with Jake “The Snake” Roberts and Diamond Dallas Page back in February, this past week Roberts took a step back on his road to recovery.
Posted on Diamond Dallas Page’s YouTube account, the following videos show production team members who observed Roberts drinking alcohol and whether or not they should confront Page about the incident. To Page’s credit, he allowed all of these interactions to play out in front of cameras and posted them in the faith of full disclosure.
Harrak’s Hit: We can only hope this serves as a one-time stumble for what has been becoming a tremendous comeback story. Best of luck, Jake.
Here is the statement that accompanied the videos:
The decision to release these videos was made after much consideration. There has been a tremendous flood of positive media coverage surrounding what happens at the Accountability Crib, and while many things that happen may be kept private, we cannot allow a false image to be portrayed.
As much as we hate seeing people fall, we still believe that anyone can make the decision to get back up. We’re not a rehab center and we’re still learning so much about addiction. We only are here to support our friends if they are willing to do the work necessary.
Please be patient as we are trying to condense hours of footage into a shorter format.
