Fergie Describes Crystal Meth Hallucinations
Oh, Ferg-a-licious. We’re glad to read that the pop singer is drug free but sharing her horror story after suffering from a meth addiction a few years before joining the Black Eyed Peas. Fergie opened up with iNews about her struggles with Crystal meth even after quitting. She says the drug had her tripping almost a year later.
“At my lowest point, I was [suffering from] chemically induced psychosis and dementia. I was hallucinating on a daily basis. It took a year after getting off that drug for the chemicals in my brain to settle so that I stopped seeing things. I’d just be sitting there, seeing a random bee or bunny.”
Her hallucinations became so severe that she thought the CIA, FBI and a SWAT team were tracking her. Fergie says she was bugging out at her Catholic church one day.
“They tried to kick me out, because I was moving down the aisles in this crazy way, as I thought there was an infrared camera in the church trying to check for my body. I bolted past the altar into a hallway and two people were chasing me. “I remember thinking: ‘If I walk outside, and the SWAT team’s out there, I was right all along. But if they’re not out there, then it’s the drugs making me see things and I’m going to end up in an institution. And if it really is the drugs, I don’t want to live my life like this any more, anyway.’ I walked out of the church; obviously there was no SWAT team, it was just me in a parking lot. It was a freeing moment.”
Yikes! Thank God she’s better now.
