We adore famous people for their looks and ability. Some turn into our good examples, some we cherish or detest. In any case, a large portion of us subtly begrudge them. Their acclaim and fortune. Their conspicuous way of life.
In any case, is there a dull side to their breathtaking way of life? To be sure there is, and it’s called dependence, generally to tranquilizes. A few famous people assume utilizing medications will help them handle the weights of the “Showbiz”, not understanding the regularly unalterable damage they do to themselves.
How about we take a gander at some of these big name drug addicts.
1. Lady Gaga
Gifted yet eccentric, Lady Gaga used drugs to cope up with the high expectations she and others put on her. The singer of “Applause” shared how she used to get high on cocaine to write music, and also using it to drive away feelings of isolation. Lady Gaga has stopped substance abuse now and strongly recommends her fans to refrain from doing drugs.
2. Demi Lovato
The multi-talented singer, actress and model had to go into rehab for drug addiction and mental issues. After realizing she was suffering from Bipolar Disorder, Demi unwisely started taking drugs to numb her emotional stress. The Barney & Friends star doesn’t shy away from talking about her addiction in the past and helps others struggling with drug abuse.
3. James Taylor
Surprising as it seems, James Taylor too is on our list of celebrity drug addicts, owing to his two decade addiction to heroin. The legendary musician, who also struggled to keep his married life together, is now clean of his addictions.
4. Brad Pitt
The most wanted Hollywood actor of the 90s, Brad Pitt had experienced dark days with marijuana after he became popular. It was only after his second marriage to Angelina Jolie that he kicked his habit and now enjoys being a responsible father to his kids.
5. Angelina Jolie
Not just Brad Pitt, but Angelina Jolie too had her share of issues with drugs. One of the most popular celebrity drug addicts, Jolie had become addicted to cocaine and heroin at a young age and even planned to commit suicide. Unlike most though, the pretty actress was able to turn her life around and is now known for her films and activism.
6. Robert Downey Jr.
Before he played a billionaire, playboy, philanthropist and tech genius on the screen, Robert Downey Jr. grappled with drug addiction. Introduced to alcohol and drugs at a very young age, he was caught holding illegal substances on several occasions and even had to spend a year in jail for it. Fortunately for him (and us!), he was able to kick out his addiction and has been clean with a very successful film career now.
