Fergie Opens Up About Overcoming Crystal Meth Addiction

Fergie Opens Up About Overcoming Crystal Meth Addiction”

Fortunately, those days are long gone, and Fergie managed to get it together, and she realized that she was in a awful place and she needed to leave it as soon as possible.

The 42-year-old singer, real name Stacy Ann Ferguson, suffered from symptoms of psychosis and dementia due to her drug addiction to methamphetamine - commonly known as crystal meth.

Speaking about how she was convinced that "the CIA, FBI and a SWAT team" were tracking her, so she tried to hide at a church, she added: "They tried to kick me out, because I was moving down the aisles in this insane way, as I thought there was an infrared camera in the church trying to check for my body". Believing that a SWAT team was about to apprehend her, she bolted from the house of worship.

When Fergie went running through the church, she told herself that if there was a SWAT team parked outside and she was right, then it would confirm her deepest fears.

The mum-of-one continued telling i newspaper: "I'd just be sitting there, seeing a random bee or a bunny".

Discovering she was alone in the church parking lot was a "freeing moment", the pop star said.

Fergie recounted a similar story before, but it loses no impact in the retelling.

She said: "I've just released my first solo album in 11 years, and I'm out promoting it".

She further said that although the drug phase was "a lot of fun", it was the lowest point in her life.

In September, the singer and her husband, actor Josh Duhamel, announced they were splitting up after eight years of marriage.

Fergie is holding nothing back while addressing how she made it through the lowest point in her life.

"I was hallucinating on a daily basis".

This isn't the first time Fergie has spoken about her history of drug use in the hopes that her story can help others.

And just in case fans were unsure over the future of The Black Eyed Peas, Fergie assured everyone that they're 100 per cent definitely still together. "It gets tough and we get exhausted, but we're trying our hardest to make sure that kid feels nothing but love", she said.
