Meth Made Andre Agassi A Big Fat Liar!

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."

Famewhore!

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!

Writes Agassi:

"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]"."

Lesson learned?

Don't do drugs, kids!

Andre Agassi Was A Meth User During Part Of Tennis Career, He Admits!

| Filed under: DrugsZportzBrooke Shields

ap0105140156aa.jpg

Tennis great Andre Agassi admits in his upcoming autobiography, Open, that he used crystal meth during his career in 1997.

A Sports Illustrated employee broke the news early before the book's release on November 9th via his Twitter, but it has since been deleted:

"Book excerpt from Andre Agassi in the forthcoming SI: He admits to taking crystal meth during his career."

Agassi's rep confirmed the revelation.

We wonder if Brooke Shields knew about this? They were still married in 1997.

Shady, shady!

MJ Asked Brooke Shields To Marry Him!

| Filed under: Michael JacksonBrooke Shields

Apparently so, according to the actress.

It was no secret that as child stars and much into adulthood Brooke Shields and Michael Jackson were close friends. But with the passing of her friend, Brooke is taking the time out to remember the man he was and the man he could have been.

Like, he could have been her husband for instance, but she declined his offer.

She says, "There were times when he would ask me to marry him, and I would say, 'You have me for the rest of your life, you don't need to marry me, I'm going to go on and do my own life and have my own marriage and my own kids, and you'll always have me.'"

Ouch! Bet that bruised his ego!

But Brooke feels that the proposals were just to ensure that their lifelong friendship would endure and never because he had true romantic feelings towards her: "I think it made him relax. He didn't want to lose things that meant something to him."

Makes us feel kind of bad for the guy. You would have been better for him than Ms. Debbie Rowe!

Brooke Shields Reflects On "Asexual" Jackson

| Filed under: Michael JacksonBrooke Shields

Brooke Shields is the latest celebrity to offer her insight into Michael Jackson, whom she met when she was just 13 years old but experienced only an "asexual" relationship with.

According to Shields, they "instantly became friends" and as Jackson grew up, he became even more asexual, "like a little kid who talked about the bases - what first base was, what second base was. It sounded very odd to the outside, I can imagine, but to the inside, to someone who's never really left his bubble, you can understand how he would be curious."

The last time Shields saw Michael was in 1991, at Elizabeth Taylor's latest wedding, and Shields said that "We snuck in and took pictures of ourselves next to her dress. We always seemed to revert to being little kids."

Sweet.

National Enquirer Reporter Pipes Up!

| Filed under: Brooke Shields

63095shields.jpg

The National Enquirer reporter who checked Brooke Shields' dementia-suffering mother mother out of an assisted living facility last month now wants to tell his side of the story!

Bob Hartlein claims he has been friends with Brooke's mother, Teri, for over 10 years!

The two became fast friends after Hartelin interviewed Teri about her alcohol problem back in 1999. They quickly bonded and Hartelin visited Shields at her home in New Jersey quite frequently, spending visits watching Dr. Phil and talking about classic movies.

Cute!

Bob realized what an odd pairing the two were, saying: "It was an unconventional relationship over the years between the mother of a world-famous movie star and a freelance tabloid reporter. But I always treated Teri with the same warmth, kindness and respect that I do my own mother."

Why did Brooke flip her shiz then????

Well, because he's probably not a real "friend"!

Brooke Shields And The National Enquirer Come To An Agreement

| Filed under: Legal MattersBrooke Shields

So, if you recall, Brooke Shields was planning on taking legal action a few weeks ago against the National Enquirer because the gossip rag checked her mentally ill mother out of an assisted living facility to "look for a story."

Well, Shields has come to an agreement with the folks over at the Enquirer. And she won!

The actress' attorney, Gerald B. Lefcourt, was able to persuade the tabloid to not publish a story and to issue a public apology!

If that wasn't enough, the magazine has also agreed to "make a generous donation to further research on dementia and to encourage others to do so," says Lefcourt.

Wow!

Although all is said and done, the National Enquirer's explanation of the situation a few weeks ago sang a different tune.

The mag released the following statement after the incident:

"A freelance reporter who has known Teri Shields for more than 10 years visited her Thursday at the assisted living facility where Brooke says she moved her. Teri asked the reporter to take her out to lunch and to run some errands. The freelance reporter then got permission from the facility to do so.

Interesting!

Although we're more apt to believe Brooke Shields over the National Enquirer any day of the week!
