Mr. Woods was extricated from the wreck with the 'jaws of life' by Los Angeles County firefighters and paramedics, then transported to a local hospital by ambulance for his injuries."

Woods, who is recovering from recent back surgery, previously admitted to an addiction to opioid narcotics as a result of back surgeries over the years.

He was arrested in 2017 after falling asleep behind the wheel of his car near his Jupiter Island, Florida, mansion at about 3:00 am. He was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

The 45-year-old father-of-two agreed to take part in a first-time DUI offender program, which he completed.

He received a year of probation, was fined $250, and ordered to undergo 50 hours of community service along with regular drug tests. He was not allowed to drink alcohol during the probation period.

Woods' agent Mark Steinberg released a statement following Tuesday's crash.

"Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries. He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support," Steinberg said.

Jada Pinkett Smith had no idea her mom Adrienne Banfield-Jones overdosed on drugs in the past, but she hopes her mom's honesty will benefit others dealing with similar addictions.

Adrienne, 66, has been sober for 30 years, but during Wednesday's episode of Jada's Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk, "Coping With Addiction During Covid-19," she told her daughter and granddaughter, Willow Smith, about her multiple past overdoses.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Jada confessed she "didn't have knowledge" of what her mom was going to say, explaining: "The great thing about Gam (Adrienne), and one of the reasons why I wanted to have this episode, is she's in her 30th year of sobriety and she has so much information to offer to those who are struggling right now.

"She just has some really veteran, useful tips in regards to how to stay clean, how to stay connected, and what to do. It's like I always tell people, 'Never judge the journey you've been on because once you get through on the other side, you're gonna have so much to offer other people who are going through it as you once had'."

Meanwhile, Jada, 48, who has been sober herself for more than 20 years after previously battling alcoholism, said that like many people, she is "dealing with old fear patterns" while quarantining.

"I haven't had a drink in a long time but those psychological patterns that once would make me drink or make me look for solace outside myself are creeping back in," she confessed. "These times are so uncertain... For me, I just had to deepen some of my spiritual practices and deepen my faith."

The star added: "All those concepts and ideas that got us to a place of sobriety are the places we need to return to and hold onto even more fiercely than we have before."

Chris Brown

Loyal reader Bird informed me that troubled singer Chris Brown released a new song this morning, titled "I Can't Win", in which he laments about being with a girl who's in love with a bottle. I'm not one to put much stock in song lyrics, but in this case, I wonder who he's talking about?

    Why you angry all the time?
    Why you don't wanna ride for me?
    Girl we used to make love
    When you called I would follow
    Now the only thing you love is a bottle

Listen to the song and read the lyrics after the break.
