Washington, Aug 27 : Mia Tyler, the daughter of Aerosmith lead singer, Steven Tyler, was 'fed' cannabis seeds by her mother when she was just eight years old.
The plus-sized model and daughter of late actress Cyrinda Fox claims the incident kickstarted years of drug abuse.
She says of her childhood, "It was challenging. I grew up real fast. I saw things I might not normally see."
"There were pot seeds around and I would pick them up. My mom thought it was funny if I ate them," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
But Tyler, 29, whose half-sister is actress Liv Tyler, insists her experiments with drugs and self-harming are behind her now.
She added, "I lead a hard life early on so i can lead an early life now."
