Which celebs are currently in drugged-out freefall?
Who's living a bit too large these days?
Chris Brown and Rihanna were the first people that popped in my mind.
So I spend a few weeks in rehab and everyone just forgets about me?
Janet Jackson. A friend who is a drug counselor said that this is the only way to explain her weight roller coaster and her years and years of being nonproductive. When her brother overdosed, it was said at the time that Janet had been doctor shopping too.
Yoush shhhould sheee whatssh underrr my furrrr coatshhh!
I thought this would be a much more popular thread.
Justin Bieber. Armie Hammer.
Amanda, please. You're a little too transparent in your "craziness".
What's this about Armie Hammer? Does anyone have any specifics?
Paris Hilton, at last!
It's true about Janet Jackson and the doctor shopping. She is well known in Las Vegas for this.
[quote]. A friend who is a drug counselor said that this is the only way to explain her weight roller coaster and her years and years of being nonproductive.
So 65 % of middle aged women are in a drugged out free-fall? Your friend sounds like a genius.
I hear Cory Montieth has finally stopped using.
My cousin's friend who is a stylist to ALL the big names in Hollywood says that Val Kilmer is a fried-dough junkie.
He follows carnies from county to county sucking dick for elephant ears and funnel cakes.
What is doctor shopping? Is that going from doc to doc to get multiple prescriptions?
Well, considering most people at Datalounge haven't met a celebrity let alone know close personal details about them, let's just say ALL OF THEM!
No R19, it's rifling through the Physician section of the Yellow Pages.
Armie Hammer? I hope not. I like him.
Adding a vote for Justin Bieber. Something is going on with that kid. He's afting crazy like Britney back in the day.
Amanda Bynes is another free-falling druggie. With a side of psycho thrown in.
Does Bieber have enough handlers to keep his inevitable OD from being fatal?
Let's hope not, R23.
Jeremy Renner, looks like shit nowadays so i guess all the drugs are catching up to him
JR has always been haggard.
well Renner used to look pretty fresh face back in SWAT and looked alright in Hurt Locker. But I think after he started hitting it big he probably got more money and access to some good hard drugs. He has been looking pretty drugged out and shit.
I imagine most of them?!? A female friend of mine dates a moderately successful country singer. (He's had a bunch of number ones, but wouldn't fill an arena.) He's clean now, but, until she intervened, he was on a downward drug spiral. ALL of his drugs were from prescriptions. She was amazed how easy it is, if you have some degree of fame and hire the right doctors, to get a scrip for pretty much anything you want. With all that free time and anxiety and money that comes from being a successful celeb, I imagine it's more likely that that they're on drugs than not.
Betty White. She's been freebasing estrogen again.
Amanda Bynes goes around denying she is or ever does drugs. She is waaaayyyyy more self conscious than people give her credit for.
Tomorrow in the NY times Magazine Drug addict Kristen Johnston from 3rd Rock from the Sons discusses Hollywood pill addiction!!!!
Yeah, what was that about Armie Hammer? Details if you've got 'em, otherwise why bother?
r27 Renner made 5 or 6 big movies back to back as well as multiple publicity tours. As well as continuing his hard-partying ways. Except he had a lot of money to spend and a lot of women who were happy to encourage his bad boy ways. Somewhere he said he slept 4 hours a night for two years.
He also had multiple serious painful injuries doing extreme stunts with his 40 year old body. Pills will keep you going till they kick your ass. Right into the grave - ask Heath Ledger.
But to me he looks like he has gone from being a heavy social drinker into out and out alcoholism. It's a different look than pills. If you drink til you pass out every night and spend the day puking and jonesing till you let yourself take a drink, that's what you look like.
He has money, fame and women thrown at him and looks like he drowned.
R16 Janet Jackson middle age? BWHAAHAHAHAHAHA
R30 -- Amanda Bynes is "way more self-conscious than people give her credit for" in regards to her "drugged-out freefrall"? Really? Someone, find the photo where she's so drugged out that she can't even keep her wig on straight and that fake hair is a total mess to boot.(Cousin It, the walking wig with glasses from the Adam's Family looked way neater!) If anyone has nothing better to do, a photo comparison between Bynes and It would be entertaining ...
(I don't have anything better to do either, but lack the photo uploading skills.)
r28 It's the prescriptions that amaze me. Hadn't Britanny Murphy just had a prescription for something like 200 Vicodin filled? For a vague back pain not related to any event?
My doctor gave me exactly 20, I say 20, after major abdominal surgery. When I asked for a refill, he almost called the cops. He told me aspirin and a little less self pity as after all I was alive, should do it.
R36 I thought that too, but remember when she was apparently stoned, and threw a bong out of a window?
She denied being on drugs, or even owning a bong, and showed up to court looking a hot mess, but was coherent. And every report or encounter i ever hear about involving her, everyone always mentions that she doesn't seem high, and doesn't seem crazy. She seems normal...... until she doesn't.
She must have some type of serious issue. For years I've heard whispers of Amanda being schizophrenic, but I always thought people were being drama queens.
Why do celebs need to doctor shop when you can get any pills on the black market?
With a doctor, it's covered by medical insurance.
But if money is no object, you are right. And they have assistants to do the pick up. I don't mind spending the money, I just don't want to be there when it all goes wrong.
The celebs who have the money get the pills off the black market, it's true. There are many places - high-end bars and clubs and such - in LA where you can easily score. It's not back-alley type stuff in sketchy parts of town if you have some status.
Why do you think Lindsay Lohan was always staying at the Chateau Marmont? That place is notorious for high-end drug dealing, and has been for years and years.
R17, haha, you're a sick puppy!
r41 Imagine a couple of cops running some shakedowns in the lobby. Why do I find that so funny?
In order of future overdose: #1 Nick Stahl, #2 Macaulay Culkin, #3 Amanda Bynes, #4 Lindsay Lohan, #5 Justin Bieber, #6 Katt Williams, #7 Miley Cyrus, #8 Pete Doherty.
Am I at least in the top ten r44? Pete Doherty is going outlive us all.
Charlie Sheen? but i think with all the drugs and alcohol he probably develop some type of resistance or something. i'm sure he will end up outliving all of us.
Doherty, Depp, Sheen - all have the magic touch when it comes to staying on the responsible side of death.
All three have had a taste of the pinga, too.
r47 but even they bow down to the master - Keith Richards
It's easy for celebs to doctor shop. One prescription from their real doctor. One prescription from their maid from her doctor, one for their driver, gardener etc. Heath Ledger had prescriptions from the states and from Australia. His Australian doctor had no idea he was getting scripts from the US as well. And when you have "people" you never actually have to pick up the stuff yourself.
Once heard a story about Keith in Portofino that involved superhuman heroics - a true legend.
r47 Do we dare ask? Or is it something that you can't unhear no matter how much you wish?
These days Pete Doherty's entire blood stream is made up entirely of heroin. Cailkin is going to need some stamina to keep up with him.
The later, r51, the later.
I heard rumors Chris Brown is heavily abusing "poor people's drugs", and judging by his weight loss, frequent hitting of white women in public, and punching a gay man everywhere-except-in-his-anus, I could believe it.
Rather, the latter.
what is janet jackson hooked on? uppers? downers? everything?
I think Quinn from DEXTER is very skinny, i wonder if he is on drugs...
R56 I'm really surprised we haven't gotten the rehab headline with that guy yet. He looks like he's dying.
Nobody predicted Cory Monteith.
Yeah r58, this thread is actually a little eerie considering how close the date it was started is to his death.
I think Quinn from dexter is on diet pills, black coffee and cigarettes these days because he sounds largely coherent when speaking, but if you look up any of his old red carpet interviews from a few years back he often sounds and looks wasted.
Speaking of Depp... I wouldn't be at all surprised if he was in some stage of a drugged-out or boozed-out freefall.
His looks and his talent have really gone to hell in the last five years, not that he was ever walking the straight and narrow.
Mark Wahlberg. Recently was totally sloshed on Graham Norton's show.
I think Quinn from Dexter's appearance is more about anorexia than it is about substance abuse. It would explain the obnoxious deep tan too. It seems like a vanity issue.
But back in season three, he did have significant booze bloat to his face, so who knows...
Being pissed on Graham Norton doesn't make you an alcoholic, just a bit of a prick.
Renner fresh faced in SWAT and haggered now - I am afraid that is the difference between being 32 and 42, it comes to all off us unless you try and paste over the cracks with plastic surgery - which makes you look like a bit of a prick.
