Oscar De La Hoya Reveals It Was Him In Drag All Those Years Ago

I love when celebrities will finally admit to something they hid for years. Today I got my fill with Oscar De La Hoya. For those of you unfamiliar with the story, back in 2007 pictures surfaced on the web of someone who looked quite a lot like Oscar dressed in drag. He was wearing fishnets, a super mesh shirt, a brown wig and black high heels while posing for the camera.

When the pics first came out, Oscar denied them saying they were a very bad photoshop job. However, RadarOnline has quotes from an interview Oscar did with Spanish language Univision where he admitted the photos were of him. Oscar said:

“Let me tell you, yes, yes, it was me [in those pictures]. I am tired now of lying, of lying to the public and of lying to myself. One of these nights when I was drunk and alone again, I asked myself, ‘Is it worth it to be alive?’ I was already feeling like I had nothing. And what is going through your mind are your children, your wife, the people who love you.”

Ah yes, the drunk and high excuse. Works every time and is sadly true every time. Other news has come out about the pictures. According to court documents, Oscar paid $20 million to Serbian model Milana Dravnel–the person he was with at the time of the pictures and who took them–to have her say they were a fake.

Oscar has been sober now for three months after starting to drink at the age of 9. Let’s hope he keeps it up. Picture denials are never fun. At least he’s still hot! Enjoy the hotness in the gallery.
