Lady Gaga's drug use exposed in tell-all book
Gaga is one of the most powerful musicians and a former friend wants to destroy that power — by revealing all her secrets and her drug abuse.
Brendan Jay Sullivan, who was once a close friend of the Gaga, has released a fiery memoir about his friendship with the pop star.
In the memoir, Sullivan has claimed that the singer enjoyed "bags and bags" of illegal substances.
This memoir is most certainly not something that the "Poker Face" singer would want revealed to the public by Sullivan — an aspiring musician in New York City.
In the novel, Rivington Was Ours: Lady Gaga, The Lower East Side and the Prime of Our Lives, Sullivan alleges that the 27-year-old pop star once brushed a mysterious white substance off the carpet at her Lower East Side apartment and proceeded to rub it into her gums.
She apparently said, ''It's mint. I wish it was coke. I used to do bags and bags of it. Mostly when I was getting ready to go out, while I was putting on my make-up."
''I'd get a delivery and then put on some Bowie and treat myself in the mirror. But I only ever did it alone. That was my one rule.''
Although no one wants their dirty laundry aired for the world, Gaga herself has previously admitted to her illicit habit and her struggle with depression. The songstress opened up back in 2009, revealing how her depression had led her to abuse drugs.
She previously reflected on her drug abuse in an interview that aired on Lifetime's The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet. ''I was very depressed when I was 19... I would go back to my apartment every day and I would just sit there. It was quiet and it was lonely. It was still. It was just my piano and myself."
"I had a television and I would leave it on all the time just to feel like somebody was hanging out with me. And especially during the period when I was doing cocaine."
"It was like the drug was my friend. I never did it with other people. It's such a terrible way to fill that void, because it just adds to that void, because it's not real.''
