Lady Gaga’s Friend Tells All on Her Drug-Filled Pre-Fame Days

Lady Gaga’s sordid drug past comes to light yet again in the new book Rivington Was Ours: Lady Gaga, the Lower East Side, and the Prime of Our Lives, written by her then closest confidante Brendan Jay Sullivan.

Wait a minute — THEY DO DRUGS IN NEW YORK CITY?!? How…shocking.

While she’s already talked about her coke addiction to Vanity Fair in 2010—it “was a low point,” she said then, adding, “It led to disaster.”—Brendan shares his own anecdotes running in the same L.E.S. drug circles while Gaga was just a student at NYU.

For instance, like when he watched her rub white powder out of a carpet onto her gums and say, “It’s mint. I wish it was coke.”

Or how many “bags and bags of it” she used to do, but mostly when she was just getting ready to go out. Her only rule? To always do it alone.

However, Brendan claims in his book that she broke that rule a few times. While they were hanging out at the bar Don Hill’s, she asked him to score her cocaine on multiple occasions.
