Celebrity Apprentice’s Didier Cohen Confesses He Was A Cokehead

Didier Cohen is involving himself in the Celebrity Apprentice pre-publicity hype by revealing he used to have drug issues and was kicked out of his family home.

Considering he is probably the most unknown contestant on the show the American born model needs to raise his profile and admitting to a troubled teen years is guaranteed to get column space.

Didier told the Daily Telegraph hhis life disintergrated and he was living on the street and taking drugs.

The article says:

Cohen, 26, said he was booted out of his wealthy Los Angeles home at the age of 17 due to his reckless and rebellious behaviour.

Living on the streets, his life disintegrated into a blur of cocaine, partying, binge drinking and sleeping from couch to couch after he landed a job in the music industry.

“I witnessed people overdosing, witnessed people about to die on drugs, it was brutal,” he toldConfidential.

“The whole industry declined, I was back on to the street again and then I was discovered off the street for modelling in Australia.

“I say every day, Australia saved my life. I’m so clean living now.”

Cohen said he was not just hoping to raise money for his charity, Youth Off The Streets, by appearing in Nine’s Celebrity Apprentice.

In other Celebrity Apprentice news Ita Buttrose will be guest starring on the show. The Daily Telegraph says Channel Nine are checking Ita out for a bigger role on the network in 2012.

Still no news on when Celebrity Apprentice will premiere on Nine this year.

Good to see Ita is finally emerging somewhere on me tele…
I’d gotten myself totally confused and had assumed she was going to get us all jiggy jiggy with The Joy of Thets, only to be grossly disappointed.

Ita will be able to introduce him to her nephew.

RR – that’s probably how he got on the show. It’s not where you’re going so much as where you’ve been…
