Celebrities Who Have Been Honest About Their Past Drug Addictions—So Brave!

December 8, 2017 by Kiarra Lyles

We look at our favorite celebrities through a limited lens. We watch our favorite artists in music videos, our favorite actors on film and our favorite socialites on reality TV. The glitz and glamorous lifestyle of celebrities, however, can be quite deceiving. We tend to idolize our favorite celebrities, putting them on a pedestal and forgetting that they are human, just like us. Celebrities experience meltdowns, breakups and and typical life stresses just like we do. So, it’s no surprise that many of our favorite celebrities have dabbled in and have struggled with drug addiction. Here are a four A-list celebrities who have bravely opened up about their experiences with drugs.

1. Fergie

 

Just a couple days ago, Fergie sat down in an interview with Nick Levine for iNews. She admitted to Levine that she used crystal meth and had severe hallucinations. “At my lowest point, I was suffering from chemically induced psychosis and dementia. I was hallucinating on a daily basis. I’d just be sitting there, seeing a random bee or bunny,” the former Black Eyed Peas singer told Levine. Fergie has since recovered from addiction and thanks her “guardian angels” for her recovery.

2. Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato got very candid about her past drug addictions in her autobiographical documentary Simply Complicated, where she relived her road to recovery from cocaine with fans. “I would sneak out and get drugs, I would fake my drug tests with other people’s pee. There was one night when I used a bunch of coke and I popped a few Xanax bars, and I began to choke a little bit. My heart started racing, and I thought to myself, ‘Oh my God, I might be overdosing right now,'” the singer says in the film. “I’ve learned that the key to being happy is to tell your truth and be OK without all the answers.”

 

3. Lady Gaga

According to Cosmopolitan, Lady Gaga once struggled with marijuana addiction. She admitted to the magazine that she was smoking 15 to 20 marijuana cigarettes a day. “I was addicted to it,” the singer said. “I just want young kids to know that you actually can become addicted to it, and it’s ultimately…a form of self-medication.”

 

4. Angelina Jolie

In an interview with 60 Minutes, Angelina Jolie alluded to drug addition, stating that she had a “dark and heavy” past. “I am very lucky. There are other artists and people that didn’t survive certain things … people can imagine that I did the most dangerous, and I did the worst…for many reasons, I shouldn’t be here,” the actress and humanitarian says. “You just…too many times where you came close to too many dangerous things, too many chances taken too, too far.” According to Cosmopolitan, Jolie’s separated husband, Brad Pitt struggled with alcohol addiction. He admitted, “Truthfully, I could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka. I was a ­professional. I was good.”

 

Celebrities are human too and many of them make mistakes. For celebrities, dealing with drug addiction while in the limelight 24/7 can be tough. These celebrities are so brave for opening up about their drug addiction. Check out these celebrities who have opened up about chronic illness at SheFinds.com
