Oscar De la Hoya went to rehab for drug and alcohol addiction back in May, and now that he’s sober he says he’s tired of lying about his past, including the famous pictures of him in drag that surfaced in 2007. At the time he said it wasn’t him, which is weird because it’s a picture, I’m looking right at you Oscar, that’s you, but now the New York Post cites a new interview he’s done with Univision, and they say…
“Let me to tell you, yes, yes, it was me [in those pictures],” he said.
The pictures also showed the bizarrely dressed boxer frolicking with Siberian knockout Milana Dravnel.
“I am tired now of lying, of lying to the public and of lying to myself.”
He said he was high on booze and cocaine when the racy photos were snapped.
And even more awesomely…
De La Hoya shelled out a whopping $20 million to Dravnel to go away. The deal also called for her to give back the heels, lingerie and fishnets that she kept after their kinky photo session.
The cross-dressing photos sent De La Hoya into a tailspin, and he thought about throwing in the towel — permanently.
“One of these nights when I was drunk and alone again, I asked myself, ‘Is it worth it to be alive?’
Jeez if he was that depressed he should have just moved to a white community. Because of the insane culture gap he could have just said wearing stilettos and a pink cowboy hat was a Latin religious thing and we never would known the difference.
