Bryan Abrams, lead singer of the R&B group Color Me Badd, says that as he was gaining fame in the 90s, he was also becoming an alcoholic. He admits that he drinks until he blacks out and that he has been violent with his wife and bandmate.

On Wednesday’s episode of Dr. Phil, Dr. Phil does an exercise with Abrams to try and help him see possibly how much of his life he has left. “You need to decide who you are and what you want to be in this life and this world,” Dr. Phil says.
