Grant Denyer Denies That He Had An Ice Addiction
Grant Denyer has come out swinging at the article in this week Woman’s Day which claims he spent a month at a rehab clinic to beat an addiction to methampehtamine. The former Australia’s Got Talent host and Sunrise weatherman is obtaining legal advice on what is a sensational article.
Grant Denyer in a statement to news.com.au said:
The Denyers admit that they did spend time at The Cabin, however strongly deny the magazine’s reports that it was for drug issues in a statement released to news.com.au.
“Claims that the couple have a drug addiction and that Grant recently lost his Channel 7 contract are both false,” says the joint statement from Grant and Chezzi Denyer, released by the former Sunrise weatherman’s manager Titus Day. “They are currently taking legal advice on what action can be taken against the magazine.
“Grant and Chezzi Denyer are saddened by the highly defamatory article in this week’s Woman’s Day Magazine. The couple have been under immense stress in recent months due to Grant dealing with chronic fatigue brought on by exhaustion and an ongoing unknown stomach illness. Chezzi has also been dealing with PTSD and anxiety issues resulting from Grant’s condition.”
The statement continues: “The wellness centre they attended in Thailand specialises in the treatment of PTSD and exhaustion and they spent four weeks there to finally address these ongoing health concerns. With their conditions now under control they are healthier and happier than they have ever been.
The program director at The Cabin in Chang Mail also told news.com.au that “Grant and Chezzi Denyer were both in treatment at The Cabin Chiang Mai for work exhaustion, executive burnout, anxiety, and PTSD”.
“They were both highly motivated during treatment and the episode resulted in a successful outcome,” the statement read.
The Woman’s Day article claims that Denyer and his wife had a $200,000 year drug habit and sought help for the addiction at rehab. Their two-year-old daughter’s grandparents looked after her for the month they were at The Cabin Chang Mai which states on its website it is Asia’s best and most respected drug and alcohol rehab centre.
What some people might find even more scandalous is the Woman’s Day claims that Grant was paid $750,000 to host Slide Show.
