Paula Abdul: I’m Not a Pill Popper!

By: Celebuzz / May 8, 2009

Earlier this week, we reported on Paula Abdul’s seeming confession to Ladies Home Journal that she was, not surprisingly, once addicted to painkillers and struggled to keep her secret “hush-hush” from the media.

However, Paula is now saying that the entire story is false!

In a statement, the American Idol judge said, “I want to make it perfectly clear to everyone that I have never been addicted to or abused drugs in my life. I have never been drunk. I have never entered a rehab or detox treatment center.”

Abdul added that the rehab facility mentioned in the magazine article is actually a resort, where she spent 3 days, not the alleged 30 days. “I spent time hiking, bicycling, doing yoga and enjoying the spa. As anyone who has visited the La Costa Resort knows, it is a luxury hotel, not a rehab facility.”

So, what did the women at Ladies Home Journal have to say in response? “We stand by our reporting and are happy that Paula decided to share her journey with us.”

Hmm…something’s fishy about this one. Leave your thoughts in the comments!
