The details of tennis pro Andre Agassi's meth use are continuing to trickle out!
In Agassi's upcoming autobiography, Open, the former Wimbledon champ reveals for the first time the tale of his crystal meth abuse, to which Agassi says he's "excited about telling the world the whole story."
We love it.
Agassi recounts his first time trying the drug back in '97 with his former assistant (while the tennis player was still married to Brooke Shields):
"Slim dumps a small pile of powder on the coffee table. He cuts it, snorts it. He cuts it again. I snort some. I ease back on the couch and consider the Rubicon I've just crossed.
There is a moment of regret, followed by vast sadness. Then comes a tidal wave of euphoria that sweeps away every negative thought in my head. I've never felt so alive, so hopeful - and I've never felt such energy.
I'm seized by a desperate desire to clean. I go tearing around my house, cleaning it from top to bottom. I dust the furniture. I scour the tub. I make the beds."
So cracked out!
Later that year, Agassi almost destroyed his tennis career when the former champ failed a routine drug test administered by the ATP!
"My name, my career, everything is now on the line. Whatever I've achieved, whatever I've worked for, might soon mean nothing," Agassi recounts.
Andre came up with a plan - place the blame on someone else!
He composed a short letter to the ATP, throwing his former assistant, Slim, under the bus!
"I say Slim, whom I've since fired, is a known drug user, and that he often spikes his sodas with meth - which is true. Then I come to the central lie of the letter. I say that recently I drank accidentally from one of Slim's spiked sodas, unwittingly ingesting his drugs. I ask for understanding and leniency and hastily sign it: Sincerely.
Agassi goes onto say writing the lie-telling letter, ultimately getting him out of a 3-month-ban, caused the former tennis champ to feel "ashamed" and this was "the end of [his drug use]"."
Don't do drugs, kids!
