James Kennedy Was ‘Belligerent’ & Running ‘in & out of the Venue Multiple Times’ While Hosting a Pool Party in New Jersey
According to a source, who spoke to In Touch Weekly, Kennedy was spotted being “belligerent” despite having achieved two years of sobriety.
The source told the outlet that Kennedy was “super drunk” while playing hosting of a party at the Pool After Dark at Harrah’s in Atlantic City, New Jersey on May 2.
“[Kennedy] ran in and out of the venue multiple times when he didn’t get his way — management had to reel him in. He was drinking, and did not care about how he acted,” the source told the outlet. “At one point he was calling for security because he was upset there wasn’t enough security around him, and at another point he was screaming for a water. But he did have a bottle of Tito‘s and a champagne bottle at the DJ booth according to one of the staff. I saw him drinking champagne but I did see them give him single drinks at various times but he didn’t drink them at that moment.”
According to his rep, who spoke with the outlet, Kennedy was running around due to a “miscommunication with the management team with regard to his DJ equipment.”
On July 6, 2022, Kennedy celebrated two years of sobriety and posted a photo in commemoration.
“IM 2 YEARS SOBER TODAY,” he wrote on Instagram. “thank you everyone that has supported me and my journey so far. Here’s to many more years alcohol free #forlife (to anyone struggling trust me the light at the end is brighter then anything I could of imagined. and if I can do it you can too).”
