According to TMZ, someone is looking to make money from the personal struggles of former six division world champion Oscar De La Hoya. An unknown party is trying to sell photos which show the former champion allegedly using cocaine during a party in Las Vegas. This bit of news comes right on the heels of last week's announcement, by De La Hoya, that he was entering rehab for substance abuse.
TMZ was told the photos were shot at a party in a Vegas hotel room a few weeks before last week's announcement by De La Hoya. The seller showed the photos to TMZ. And the outlet states that in the photos De La Hoya was using a rolled up bill to do lines of a white substance off a plate on a table. The seller told TMZ the substance was cocaine.
De La Hoya is fully aware of these photos, according to TMZ.
In 2007, a New York City stripper leaked pictures of De La Hoya wearing women's lingerie. He appeared to be very intoxicated in those photos. While he initially denied they were real, he came clean on the photos in 2011 during a televised interview on Univision. Tags: Oscar De La Hoya
