Gerard Way reveals why My Chemical Romance split!




At long last, Gerard Way has revealed the reason My Chemical Romance broke it off:

"I relapsed, not into drugs but booze," he says. "I was self-medicating again to get through, and I’d forgotten how miserable that made me. It took me to the dark place again, but there was more at stake this time. I started to face the hypothetical reality of [daughter] Bandit not having a father. I started taking that seriously, thinking, 'I want her to have a dad. A guy that's present. Because one way or another – either by death or by asylum, she's gonna be fatherless if I keep this up.’"

He says, the choice was an easy one: "Break the band, or break me."



Mad respect to you, Gerard Way!
