London (ANI): Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton has hit out at actress Drew Barrymore in his new book, insisting her sober public image is fake. The Charlie's Angels actress struggled with drink and drugs as a child star, but kicked her addictions with a stint in rehab in the early 1990s. Earlier this year (09) she insisted she doesn't claim to be sober, but she's found a "balance" that works.
However, in his new book 'True Bloggywood Stories: The Glamorous Life of Beating, Cheating and Overdosing", Hilton has branded her a "f**ked up mess," reports the Daily Star. He admits he wasn't planning to mention Barrymore until an incident at a concert in Los Angeles changed his mind.
He claims one of the actress'' friends told him, "Those that can''t do, criticise," and he replied, "You know, you are right, but at least I won't tell anyone what a mess (Drew) is... And I didn't. Until now. She was f**ked-up. She's always f**ked-up... She is not the sober kitten that the main public may think she is."
Hilton has also blasted Latino star Jennifer Lopez, alleging she set up a meal with her husband Marc Anthony and tipped off the paparazzi to dispel rumours their marriage was in trouble. He wrote, "(Photographers) had received a call that basically instructed them where to be and what time and what to look for."
