X Factor 2016 contestant Honey G has made a shock admission about her past.
The singer has revealed in a new interview how she has struggled with drug addictions and previously "did class A drugs"
“I’m hardcore and I’m totally real," Honey G told The Sun.
She opened up to the newspaper about turning to drugs after being "kidnapped and sexually assaulted" at college.
Honey G said: “I have struggled with addiction. I have nothing to hide. I did do some class A drugs like cocaine and I did pills. I did a magic mushroom that I will never do again — that was probably one of the worst experiences.
“The thing about me is there is actually a story behind me and my life. It’s not like, ‘Hi I’ve just turned up on X Factor’.
“I’ve been a musician my entire life and I’ve been through real experiences. I’m totally real, hardcore and I have experienced things that are real.”
Honey G also spoke about struggling with a weed addiction.
“I don’t do it much now, only socially from time to time. I don’t like to bring it in my apartment as I don’t want to get hooked," she said.
According to The Sun, X Factor bosses spoke to Honey G following her revelation to them and denied any drug use while on the show.
A spokesperson for the X Factor said: “We’ve spoken to Honey and she’s assured us she has not taken drugs while being on the show.”
The X Factor is back tonight on ITV from 8PM.
