Rob Lowe’s 1988 sex tape scandal almost ended his career, however he still calls it “the finest thing that ever took place to me.”.
Rob Lowe has actually discovered a silver lining in his career-threatening scandal from the late ’80 s
The recorded sexual encounter made throughout the 1988 Democratic National Convention was brought up throughout the 55- year-old star’s appearance on SiriusXM’s “The Jess Cagle Program.” In 1989, the “St. Elmo’s Fire” actor dealt with a suit from the mom of a 16- year-old girl included in the tape. Lowe rejected understanding the woman was underage, according to CBS News and Yahoo
Today, Lowe speaks about the occurrence with a lighthearted tone.
” The problem was, I didn’t make any cash off of it like everyone does now. I was too stupid,” he stated with a smile.

Lowe says he owes his life today, in part, to the experience.
” It is among the reasons that I got sober,” he said. “I, like, awakened one day and was like, ‘What am I doing with my life?’
” People talk about it, I go, ‘I think it’s the very best thing that ever took place to me,'” he continued. ” Honestly, I do, ’cause it got me sober. Sober got me married. I’ve been wed 29 years, and I have two great kids. I don’t think any of that happens without going through that scandal. I really don’t.”
Lowe got sober in 1990 and well known 29 years on Instagram in May.
” Thank you to all those who have motivated me on this fantastic, challenging and life-altering journey,” he captioned a picture of his younger self. “If you, or somebody you know, are dealing with alcohol or dependency, there CAN be a future of hope, health and joy. And it comes one day at a time. #recovery #ItWorks.”
Assessing his early accomplishments, Lowe informed Cagle, “It’s not a fantastic dish for success to offer an 18- year-old male fame, cash, drugs and expect there not to be something that goes incorrect.”
