Oscar De La Hoya Fesses Up to Racy Photos
It really is him after all!
Boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya finally fessed up. He admitted that the infamous photo showing him wearing high heels and fishnet stockings is in fact him.
For years he claimed that the photos were fake. But he just came clean in an interview with Spanish television network Univision.
"Yes, yes, it was me. I am tired of lying. Of lying to the public and of lying to myself," said De La Hoya.
The boxer nicknamed "Golden Boy" was also photographed in a frilly white tutu, hugging his former girlfriend. He's fessing up about that photo too, saying he was high on booze and cocaine when it was taken.
"All these emotions run through your head and you do crazy, stupid things," said De La Hoya.
When the racy photos first appeared in 2007, De La Hoya launched a PR campaign claiming they'd been Photoshopped by beautiful ex-stripper Milana Dravnel.
She later filed a lawsuit saying her reputation was damaged, and they eventually settled out of court.
De La Hoya, who is married with three kids, says the cross-dressing photos sent his life into a tailspin.
He says he even considered suicide before checking himself into rehab last May. Today he tweeted, "I no longer have to lie. I can live an honest life."
