Fergie recalled one of the darkest times of her life when she battled meth addiction. She presents terrifying details saying that the drugs caused her to have hallucinations even after she quit.
Fergie was really open about her wild young days when she used to struggle with crystal meth addiction. She shared these horrible details with Oprah Winfrey back in 2012.
Now, she is going into much more in-depth details about those terrible moments:
‘At my lowest point, I was [suffering from] chemically induced psychosis and dementia,’ Fergie confessed to iNews.
‘I was hallucinating on a daily basis. 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.’
Fergie remembered things going so bad that she was paranoid and she was having hallucinations that the FBI and CIA were tracking her.
She confessed that she even sought refuge in a church, and this probably happened because she was raised Catholic.
‘They tried to kick me out because I was moving down the aisles in this crazy way, as I thought there was an infra-red camera in the church trying to check for my body. I bolted past the altar into a hallway, and two people were chasing me,’ she recalled.
‘I remember thinking: ‘If I walk outside, and the SWAT team’s out there.’ I walked out of the church, and there was no one there but me in a parking lot. It was a freeing moment.’
Fortunately, those days are long gone, and Fergie managed to get it together. She realized that she was in a horrible place and she needed to leave it as soon as possible.
After quitting drugs, she joined The Black Eyed Peas, and she became the famous strong lady that everyone knows and respects today. Good for you, girl!
