- Amber, 40, made the admission during an appearance on Adam22’s podcast
- She said that she and her son Slash have a cup of joe together each morning
- The rapper insisted ‘a little caffeine is not bad,’ but experts have said differently
Amber Rose has revealed that she lets her four-year-old son drink coffee ‘every day’ – despite medical professionals issuing stark warnings against kids under the age of 12 consuming caffeine in the past.
The rapper, 40, made the shocking admission during an appearance on Adam22’s No Jumper podcast earlier this week.
While chatting with the YouTuber and his porn star wife, Lena the Plug, Amber explained that she and her son Slash have a cup of joe together each morning – and insisted that it’s not a ‘big deal.’
‘Slash is four, and he drinks coffee all the time,’ she said. ‘[He has it] every day. Me and my kids sit, and we drink coffee, and we talk.
‘It’s not a big deal. It’s really not. My four-year-old will wake up and be like, “I want coffee and breakfast.” It’s only caffeine. It’s a little caffeine. It’s not bad for you.’
While there are no federal guidelines when it comes to kids having coffee, the American Academy of Pediatrics has advised against children 12 and under drinking any amount of caffeine.
‘Because children are smaller in body size, it takes less to impact their functioning,’ HopkinsMedicine.org reported.
‘Children and adolescents are also still developing and the impact of caffeine on their nervous systems and cardiovascular systems is not fully known.
‘Too much caffeine can cause issues such as increased anxiety, increased heart rate and blood pressure, acid reflux and sleep disturbance. Too much caffeine is dangerous for kids, and in very high doses, can be toxic.
‘Caffeine is a stimulant that increases alertness. If your child feels like he or she needs caffeine to get through the day, it would be better to work with a pediatrician to identify the root cause of what is creating the fatigue in the first place.’
Amber shares Slash with music executive Alexander Edwards, who she dated from 2018 until 2021.
She also has another son, named Sebastian, 10 who she welcomed with rapper Wiz Khalifa in 2013.
The Gotcha songstress left Adam and Lena, who have a three-year-old daughter, named Parker, completely stunned by her revelation.
She told the couple, ‘I mean, I don’t wanna say it like, [go] do extra crazy s**t to your daughter, but like, she’ll be OK.’
Amber added that coffee isn’t the only thing she’s relaxed about, admitting that she also lets her kids drink Coca-Cola and Root Beer, and ‘go crazy’ with their Halloween candy.
During their chat, the artist also revealed that her eldest son, Sebastian, knows about her OnlyFans profile.
She joined the adult platform in 2020, and while she said she ‘doesn’t volunteer information’ about it to her kids, Sebastian ‘isn’t stupid.’
‘He has the Internet, and I got to say he’s a really smart, funny kid,’ she shared. ‘So he’ll be like, “Mom, I have an OnlyFans too.”
‘He doesn’t, but if Sebastian was sitting right here, you’d think you’re talking to an 18-year-old kid. He cracks jokes because he’s just a smart, funny kid.
‘He doesn’t care. I taught him from a very early age that you cannot tell women what to do with their bodies. That’s it.
‘So, if a girl is on OnlyFans and she’s making money off her feet pictures or if guys are stupid enough to buy pictures and videos of girls, let the girl make the money.’
She also said the 10-year-old is well aware that his dad smokes marijuana and is now ‘desensitized’ to it – because the rapper never tried to hide the habit from the youngster.
‘[Wiz] wouldn’t blow it in his face or anything like that, but Sebastian will be in the vicinity [of it],’ she explained.
‘It’s so normalized. It’s not a thing [to him]. Wiz smokes all day, every day, so Sebastian – since he was two – it’s just like, “My dad’s smoking.” It’s not anything. He’s desensitized.’
Adam and Lena, who tied the knot in May 2023 after seven years together, made headlines back in July, after it was revealed that Adam had let his wife perform on camera with another man.
She filmed the X-rated scene with fellow adult content creator Jason Luv, and afterwards, Adam insisted that it actually strengthened their relationship and boosted both of their careers.
