Famous singer Fergie decided to open up about her struggle with drug addiction. The famous singer said that she was actually hallucinating on a daily basis because of heavy drugs consumption.
Fergie, whose real name is Stacy Ferguson, revealed during an interview with iNews that the addiction got so bad that she was at one point thinking that the CIA, the FBI, and SWAT teams were coming for her. The star opened up about her battle with addiction, which allegedly occurred before her time with the Black Eyed Peas.
Fergie said that during those moments she actually reached the “lowest point” of her life. She said that the addiction finally led to her suffering from serious conditions, such as dementia. “I was [suffering from] chemically-induced psychosis and dementia. I was hallucinating on a daily basis,” the famous singer said during her interview.
“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,” the singer went on to explain. Fergie said that during one incident she believed that the SWAT team was following her. She entered a church to seek help, but the people there tried to kick her out, as she was visibly under the influence of drugs, “moving down the aisles in a crazy way.”
Fergie said that she believed that the SWAT teams will be out there waiting for her. “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 like this anymore, anyway,” she said.
Of course, she finally had to leave the church and when she saw that there was no one there, she realized that she was dealing with a severe issue. “It was a freeing moment,” she said, adding that she does not regret what happened, because it gave her strength, faith and hope. The fact that Fergie has been dealing with drug addiction in the past has been a well-known thing, as the famous singer previously talked about this during an interview.
