Tatum tells the mag he had some learning disabilities growing up and was given drugs like Adderall to help him, something he doesn’t plan on doing with his kid. “I truly believe some people need medication. I did not. I did better at school when I was on it, but it made me a zombie,” he said. “For a time, it would work well. Then it worked less and my pain was more. I would go through wild bouts of depression, horrible comedowns. I understand why kids kill themselves. I absolutely do. You feel terrible. You feel soul-less. I’d never do it to my child.”
PARKER FINED FOR WEDDING
Facebook co-founder Sean Parker spent even more money on his weekend nuptials than originally reported.

Making matters worse, Parker didn’t get the required permits for the construction. Officials from the California Coastal Commission found out about the violations after most of the set was already built, so Parker suggested a deal. He agreed to pay $2.5 million that will be used for environmental projects and to fund grants to nonprofits for their conservation efforts.
