Red Hot Chili Peppers star Anthony Kiedis struggles to find love because of his wild-man past.
The rocker has fought a much-documented battle with drug addiction since he was young, but overcame his problems in the 1990s and became a father to son Everly, by his now ex-girlfriend Heather Christie.
But clean-living Kiedis admits he's still looking for love, as women are scared to get close to him because of his hell-raising history.
He tells Britain's The Sun, "I find it hard to meet the right woman as people assume I'm a certain type of person - which I'm not. It's been hard. I meet people and they say things like 'I'd never go out with someone like you, I know who you are'. But they don't know who I am.
"I run into that a lot with people and so the tragic thing in relationships is that I never get a fair shake because of that preconceived idea of who people think I am. So I'm trying at all costs to avoid the pitfall of having the relationship based on ideas formed from my past."
But Kiedis still hopes to find that special person to settle down with: "I hope someone can open their mind and rediscover who I really am rather than who they think I am."
