Singer Fergie discusses struggles with addiction

December 7, 2017 – A mainstay on the radio with a number of hits, Singer Fergie recently discussed her struggles with the disease of addiction as she promoted her latest album.

The former Black Eyed Peas performer Fergie was interviewed by iNews and talked about how she relied on her strength, faith and hope while going through treatment and to recovery:

“At my lowest point, I was [suffering from] chemically induced psychosis and dementia. I was hallucinating on a daily basis. It took a year after getting off that drug for the chemicals in my brain to settle so that I stopped seeing things. I’d just be sitting there, seeing a random bee or bunny.”

Her hallucinations became so severe that she thought the CIA, FBI and a SWAT team were tracking her. She eventually sought solace in a church, probably on some level, she thinks, because of her Catholic upbringing.

“They tried to kick me out, because I was moving down the aisles in this crazy way, as I thought there was an infrared camera in the church trying to check for my body. I bolted past the altar into a hallway and two people were chasing me.”
