Empire” star Tasha Smith did cocaine at 14 and “could have been a crackhead” had she not had the hustle to make it in LA.

Smith was on TV One’s “Uncensored” and described her early life in Camden, NJ, where she was born as one of a pair of twins to a 15-year-old single mom.

She said, “As beautiful as Camden was, it was a place where I dealt with sexual, physical abuse, a place where I did all kinds of drugs. I was doing cocaine at the age of 14. I really could have been a crackhead today.”
