Katie Price admits she turned to cocaine and alcohol to escape crazy life
Katie Price has admitted that she turned to cocaine to escape her crazy life before seeking treatment at The Priory.
The mum-of-five, who has recently endured a string of challenges including being declared bankrupt and breaking up with boyfriend Kris Boyson, opened up about her struggle in an upcoming episode of My Crazy Life, where she also confessed she’ll be in therapy ‘for the rest of her life’.
‘I mean, there’s only so much I can take as a human being,’ Katie began. ‘Traumas from the exes, the media giving me a hard time with constant bull**** stories. I’ve had two dogs that have died, I even got blamed for that by the press.
‘It got to the point where I literally can’t talk to anyone. My mum is terminally ill, I don’t want to stress her out. Yeah, I turned to coke and I turned to drink.’
‘Because my head was so numb with stuff, my reaction was “oh just another thing, just another thing,” which wasn’t normal to act,’ Katie continued as she sat down with her producer, Rick.
‘So that’s why I turned to something to escape from that, and mine ended up being the coke. This is why I can’t go back to my house, the times I’ve done coke there, all the parties there.’
Taking positive steps to get better, Katie acknowledged that she decided to check herself in for rehabilitation for the sake of her family.
‘I need to get myself well for Harvey [her 17-year-old son] and the kids. I think this is something which has been brewing for a while,’ she said.
After taking some much needed time for herself, Katie reflected on the positives, admitting that a stay in The Priory away from the scrutiny of the media is just what she needed for her mental health.
‘It’s the best thing I have ever done,’ she enthused. ‘I’m not going to be a product of people.
‘My name’s Katie Price: human being, mother of five, loves her job, loves her work, and I hope you enjoy watching the new Katie Price reborn.’
