Celebrity Big Brother 'drove Alexander O'Neal to take cocaine'

Alexander O’Neal

Celebrity Big Brother drove Alexander O'Neal to take cocaine and marijuana, it's been claimed.

The singer was caught out paying £300 for drug deliveries to his London hotel room after leaving the house.

The 80s singer left the house following repeated clashes with Perez Hilton, with some of the other housemates claiming that Perez had 'forced' Alexander to leave.

Despite technically walking, Alexander still got this £75,000 fee for the series.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Alexander described the incident as a " momentary relapse."

They told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: It has been extensively reported how this series of CBB has been one of the most stressful and volatile in the history of the show.

“It has been ­documented in the past that Alexander has had issues that have led to him seeking professional help and treatment.

“This was a momentary relapse, completely out of his recent ­character and behaviour and he will certainly be addressing and dealing with this immediately."

The spokesman explained: “Alexander has a lot of positive projects to look forward to over the next few months, including a tour and new material he is working on, and hopes this momentary lapse will not interfere with those.

“He asks his fans to forgive him and apologises if he has let any of you down.”

As well as cashing in on CBB, Alexander is set to tour the UK with a string of gigs lined up.
