Can people really blame Nick Carter for going overboard with his drug addiction while dating Paris Hilton? It’s kind of assumed that one must be on a shit ton of narcotics and booze to put up with her. Especially if she insists on singing or DJing.
In his new memoir, Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It, Carter discusses his long battle with addiction and the struggles he has had along the way. He also drops the little tidbit that the lowest part in his life came when he was dating the hotel heiress and that he “could’ve ended up a tragedy.” Because sleeping with the herpes queen wasn’t tragic enough?Apparently Nick’s first drink was at age 2. The family caught him chugging liquor from a bottle like it was a teet, and instead of being horrified, everyone laughed. That was just setting the foundation for a long life full of issues. Cause nothing says “aww” like a wasted toddler slurring “Twinkle Twinkle.”
As he got older, he got heavier into drug use. Then came all that Backstreet Boy money and fame and it was a done deal. Everything from weed, to Ecstasy, to cocaine. ”I Want It That Way” revenue can certainly buy a lot of things to get you messed up. And it all got way worse once he start banging the talent-less millionaire. Instead of maybe trying to help him get clean, or back off the hallucinogens, it seems Paris Hilton encouraged the lifestyle and was happy to do so.
So, for the year they shared a rolled up Benjamin, Carter not only got to live out a real life version of Requiem For A Dream, but he also got fat. He gained over 50 pounds, which being that he loved cocaine so much was kind of shocking. Carter also admitted he was downing a bottle of vodka every night, so the booze bloat must have been more powerful than the coke diet.
Carter says his biggest regret was his use of Ecstasy.
“The amount I did caused changes to my brain that are responsible for my bouts of depression now.”
Carter is sober now, although he does admit that he occasionally slips up and has a drink. One has to wonder if those are the nights he remembers seeing Paris’ naked bony ass prance around, while being forced to listen to her sing “Stars Are Blind” and have to lie to her that she was an amazing singer just to get some of her good white shit.
