It seems like every week a new scandal rocks the sports world. Last week, ESPN’s Steve Phillips was fired for having an affair with his 22-year-old assistant and this week, just in time for the release of his new book, Andre Agassi offers up the latest sports-related shocker: that he was regularly using crystal meth in the ‘90s.
In his upcoming memoir, Open, the former tennis star also dishes dirt on his hair loss, troubled marriage to Brooke Shields, and the love of his life, wife Steffi Graf.
“I can’t speak to addiction, but a lot of people would say that if you’re using anything as an escape, you have a problem,” Agassi told People, which will publish an excerpt from the book in next week’s issue. (People)
