Oscar De La Hoya can be a bit of a drama queen, so I don’t know how much of this I take at face value. What we do know is that Oscar went into rehab for various reasons and now says he is a changed man.
He still says weird stuff on twitter to make me think he might still be on coke, but I am going to take him at his word that he is clean now.
De La Hoya has cleaned up his life, staying sober for the last three months and joined Alcoholics Anonymous. De La Hoya retired in 2009 after a 16-year career.”Within couple of years, just thinking if my life was even worth it. I don’t have the strength, I don’t have the courage to take my own life but I was thinking about it” De La Hoya said.
“There were drugs, my drug of choice was cocaine and alcohol, hmm. Cocaine was recent. The last 2 years, last 2 1/2 years and I depended more in the alcohol than the cocaine” De La Hoya said.
He also discussed his unfaithful incidents which led to a separation with his wife. The two are back together.”We are obviously not talking a Tiger Woods here, but I was unfaithful” De La Hoya said.
I will give him credited to owning up to not being man enough to commit suicide. A lot of people say they thought about suicide but are too vain to actually go through with it. De La Hoya is worth like $300 million, I sure that thought of killing himself went in and out his mind pretty quickly.
I have an issue with that last line about being unfaithful. I am going to go out on a limb and say that De La Hoya cheating wasn’t a one time thing. In fact I am sure if we lined out De La Hoya mistresses and jumps off next to Tiger Woods’ ladies I don’t think there would be much of a difference.
Don’t try to use Tiger to make yourself feel better about cheating on your wife. They should have taught you that in rehab Oscar.
