Frankie Grande has had a year full of emotional events. The reality television star and YouTube personality has made a name for himself, and with that, a growing fan base. Grande is the older half-brother of pop sensation, Ariana Grande.
Earlier today, Frankie Grande shared an emotional letter about his journey over the last year. According to People, he marked one year of sobriety. Grande spiraled out of control after the bombing in Manchester last year. His sister was the headliner that night, and several of her fans and their family members died because of the terrorist actions. Frankie revealed that he was upset about the events and became stuck in a deep hole, one that grew as he began to drink too much and abuse prescription medication.
A lot has happened since Frankie Grande rose to fame in the reality television world. He appeared on Season 16 of Big Brother, keeping his connection to Ariana Grande a secret for a while. Grande then decided it would be a good idea to reveal the connection in order to further his game. The franchise garnered Frankie plenty of attention and helped to grow his fan base. His larger than life personality was something that took getting used to, but once the houseguests did, they adored him.
