Oscar De La HoyaGorgeous pretty-teethed boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya, 38, checked himself into rehab. Looks like the retired pretty boy has some substance abuse problems he needs to contend with.
Wow, with a face like that, it's not hard to see how you could get yourself into trouble and no one would mind a bit. I mean, this guy could snort two tons of cocaine and go batsh!t crazy, and I might keep him around for eye candy sake. And then he could turn around and lie about it, and most of us would look into those big brown eyes and believe anything he said. And therein lies the problem for this sports celebrity, I suppose.
It would be hard to be an lying, cheating addict that looks this good.
Looks like drinking and cocaine use have spiraled into marital infidelity, all of which De La Hoya hopes to deal with in his treatment program. We sure hope it helps. Substance abuse is not pretty, no matter how pretty you are or how long you get away with it because you're pretty or rich or famous.
In a statement to TMZ, De La Hoya said:
After doing an honest evaluation of myself, I recognize that there are certain issues that I need to work on. Like everyone, I have my flaws, and I do not want to be one of those people that is afraid to admit and address those flaws.
Throughout my career and my life, I have always met all challenges head-on, and this is no different. I am confident that with the support of my family and friends, I will become a stronger, healthier person.
I ask for respect and privacy as my family and I go through this process.
Well, one thing's for sure, rehab just got a little prettier for one group in a treatment facility in California. Who needs drugs when you have De La Hoya getting real in the chair across the way.
I think I may need to go to rehab now. You?
