No matter how dark the days or cold the nights, she kept fighting.
Early in her comeback, after losing 6-2, 3-6, 6-4 in the first round of the 1997 Australian Open, Capriati said, "I'm not going to let this discourage me at all."I have enough desire to work to reach my potential still."She was 20 at the time.
Four years later she had that trophy in her hands."It's a story a lot of people can identify with," Andre Agassi said about Capriati's victory shortly after winning on the men's side.
Da Bone dated Jennifer Capriati from 2003-2009. Da Bone had stepped away from the industry in 2003 and traveled the world coaching tennis, doing stunts, and playing music.He has drummed for bands such as Outland, Native Soul, Nailhole, Novacaine, 4pley and Gangbang. He has also done stunts with Team No Limit and Adrenalincrew. Da Bone returned to the adult industry after his relationship with Capriati ended. He is currently a spokesperson for Raw-Nation and Hot Rawks.But seeing how her old friends are still in her life, maybe she has enough fighting on her plate for now. Two years ago she was rushed into the hospital for allegedly overdosing on prescription drugs. Many former pros at this year's Wimbledon were asking each other about her; few had any answers. that's because it is -- and Da Bone has 443 films under Da Belt.
Da Bone claims Jen got horribly depressed every time a grand slam event went down.
Sources tell me she is still wrestling with personal issues and even considered not accepting the Hall's invitation because she had anxiety about being in public.
Anyway, Da Bone (oh, Christ) spoke to TMZ, stating that he had ideas as to why Capriati overdosed and ended up in the hospital.
Burned out and spiraling out of control like so many child stars before her, Capriati entered a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility shortly after her arrest.
And if she had simply disappeared and was never heard from again, hardly anyone would have noticed. She fought her addiction, she fought to get back into shape and she fought her demons.
Da Bone was born and mostly raised in North Carolina.
