“He’s really a nice person, otherwise I wouldn’t be with him. When two people have been through something traumatic it can be toxic or healing. Luckily we’ve been the healing thing for each other,” she told The Sun.

Traumas strengthened my bond with Pennant: Jess Impiazzi

Brit actor Jess Impiazzi considers herself lucky as traumas have turned out to be healing and helped her get close to footballer beau Jermaine Pennant. In the past year, Pennant faced bankruptcy and he was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).


“He’s really a nice person, otherwise I wouldn’t be with him. When two people have been through something traumatic it can be toxic or healing. Luckily we’ve been the healing thing for each other,” she told The Sun.


Last month, the former Liverpool and Stoke star, 40, spoke about how he regrets blowing his career earnings of GBP10million (approx R99cr) on holidays, homes and supercars. It was Impiazzi who urged the former footballer to seek help for ADHD.

Something like that doesn’t leave any scars. We met the therapist and then the doctor. It’s changed everything and it’s much better for him to understand and think about what he’s doing before he acts on impulse,” she said.
