De La Hoya admits addictions in TV interview

First, former boxing champion Oscar De La Hoya said in a television interview that he thought about suicide and has been going to rehab because he has become dependent on drugs and alcohol. Then came the New York Post report that the Golden Boy paid a whoppin $20 million to keep a model quiet over a photo shoot that saw the “Golden Boy” dressed in high heels, fishnet stockings and frilly lingerie.

”Rock bottom was recently,” De La Hoya said in an interview that aired Tuesday on the Spanish-language network Univision, according to an English-language transcript provided by the network. ”Within a 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 he has been sober for three months after undergoing treatment and joining Alcoholics Anonymous.

He said he was unfaithful to his wife and that they were separated for a while.
