Last night on Dr. Drew‘s show on HLN, Drew and Celebrity Rehab counselors Bob Forrest and Jennifer Gimenez got together to discuss the passing of Rodney King who appeared on season two of the show. The news was still very raw for all of them, but more than anything else, they all kept restating the fact that for all the addictions that King suffered through, he was a gentle man at his core.
In the clip above, watch as the three rehabilitation experts discuss their time with King and Dr. Drew reveals his own reaction to King’s passing, saying “You know what happens to me when my patients die? The first thing that happens, I feel angry because I know it didn’t have to happen…I’m sort of in that stage right now with it. After the anger passes, then the sadness kicks in.”
