Altiyan Childs – Alleged In Court That He Used Ice.
In court this week Nicholas Cocuzzoli alleged that Altiyan Childs, winner of The X Factor, used ice.
The Sunday Telegraph are reporting that Cocuzzoli, who is currently before the courts on drug charges, told them that Altiyan Childs was a frequent user of the illicit drug ice.
The article states:
In court on Wednesday, Childs admitted to using cannabis, saying: “I’ve smoked it before. I had a joint once or twice in the bedroom (of the Ramsgate house),” he said.
Cocuzzoli told the court that Childs would frequently use ice and that the tour team had given up trying to convince him to stop abusing the drug.
“It was a real problem because of the mood swings … he would be wrecked before his shows,” Cocuzzoli told the court. “We tried to address it two or three times but he would go into a fit, kicking walls and screaming.
“It got to the point where it wasn’t worth it.”
Altiyan also spoke in court:
Childs told the court he went to Kogarah Police Station at the “end of March or early April” last year when he told officers he was the “victim of a corrupt crew” after falling out with his tour crew including his then-manager.
Childs told the court: “I was a victim and I wanted some advice. I wanted to talk to someone and ask them.”
The matter continues in court on April 2.
This court case is almost more interesting then The X Factor itself.
