Amber Rose was told she’s ‘too pretty’ to sell crack

Amber Rose’s past wasn’t all glitz and glamour — she once “tried” to sell drugs.

“I usually don’t tell people this but I tried selling crack in my neighborhood,” Rose confessed on Van Lathan’s “The Red Pill” podcast. “They said I was gonna get robbed, I was a girl and I was too pretty, and it wasn’t going to happen.”

After selling didn’t work, Rose, 35, took a job behind the scenes weighing and bagging up drugs to be sold.

Rose said she did the work to feed her family.

“I don’t really think people understand how ‘hood I grew up,” she added. “The s–t that I had to overcome, and even overcome after I became famous. My life has never been easy. [But] it did push me to that limit to go feed for my family.”

Rose has one son, Sebastian, with ex-husband Wiz Khalifa.
