Being the crazy rocker that he is, we’ve learned that Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler has blown through a whopping $5 million on nose candy. MADNESS! Somewhere in the world, Charlie Sheen is cowering in the corner, saying, “That’s cute.” TMZ has the scoop:
Steven Tyler says he “snorted half of Peru” over the course of his drug-addled rock career — easily spending at least $5 million on cocaine before he finally kicked the habit.
The Aerosmith singer revealed the drug numbers on Australia’s “60 Minutes” this week, saying he spent a fortune on booger sugar as a young rock star … “Probably, realistically, 5 or 6 [million], easy … You could also say I snorted half of Peru, but, you know, it’s what we did.”
Tyler’s been open about his former drug addiction for a while now — telling Matt Lauer back in 2011, “I needed that cocaine. I needed it.” But he said it ruined him, adding, “It took my children away, it took my marriages away. I was on my knees.”
Tyler sobered up in the mid 80s but later relapsed. He was diagnosed with Hepatitis C in 2003, which he believes he contracted as a result of his intravenous drug use.
Tyler’s been in and out of rehab numerous times, but now considers himself sober.
Apparently, he feels that sniffing his way through millions of dollars is a badge of honor. What do you think? Is he crazy? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below…
