JANICE GRIFFITH: PERSONAL LIFE
The popular star currently resides in Los Angeles, California, United States. Her brother Chris works as a professional photographer and cinematographer.
Her father’s name is John but it’s not clear what his profession is. At age 16, she developed anorexia nervosa and began starving herself, eventually weighing just 79 pounds.
She says she would drink two liters of water a day because she believed that this would help her feel full; at one point she had lost so much weight that doctors told her family they were worried that if she continued on this path, they would have to put a feeding tube into her stomach.
One night while watching TV with her mother, she saw that Tyra Banks had visited an eating disorder clinic on America’s Next Top Model and decided that she wanted to do the same thing.
They drove four hours from Brooklyn to Harlem Hospital in Manhattan where doctors found out that her iron levels were dangerously low.
They asked her mother to bring some chicken soup from home which helped Janice start eating again. Her condition worsened and her heart rate plummeted to 34 beats per minute due to anemia.
Doctors said if she didn’t get better within a week, they might have to insert a feeding tube or take more drastic measures like surgery.
The next morning when Janice woke up, she realized how sick she felt and vowed never to restrict food again.
To maintain a healthy lifestyle, she makes sure to eat enough food and avoid skipping meals, even if she doesn’t always like what’s on the menu. Exercise is another important part of her routine: It clears my head and helps me focus on something other than bad thoughts, she says.
Janice Griffith is no stranger to controversy. In 2013, she was involved in an incident with another ad*lt film star, James Deen. The two were filming a scene together when Deen allegedly threw Griffith off a roof. The fall resulted in a broken foot for Griffith. After the accident, her lawyer sent a letter demanding that Deen pay $23,000 in damages. A few months later, she filed suit against him alleging s*xual assault and emotional distress.
She dropped both lawsuits after it became clear that they would not result in any money being paid to her. Later, Griffith admitted to having an affair with Deen during their time on set. It was reported that she wrote a Tumblr post defending him in 2016. When asked about this situation, she stated I am still close friends with James.
He did nothing wrong, he was very supportive and caring of me. We worked together, we partied together, and he cared about me as much as he could care about anyone other than himself.
She has worked for production companies such as Digital Playground, Zero Tolerance, Tushy, Vixen, Jules Jordan Video, Girlfriends Films, Deeper, Pulse Distribution, Digital Sin and Wicked.
