Back in 2007 a stripper went public with pictures of boxer Oscar De La Hoya wearing lingerie, high heel shoes and a fishnet bodysuit, along with wild tales about how Oscar loved to get high and cross dress [click here if you missed that]. A few days later the stripper retracted her story and said the pictures were fake [click here if you missed that], they were not...
In a recent interview Oscar totally admits that the pictures were real and that he paid the stripper off to make them go away!
From the NY Post
Boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya admitted to dressing in drag and considering suicide while his life was going down for the count because of self-inflicted, one-two punches of booze and cocaine addiction.
In a remarkable Spanish-language interview with Univision, the "Golden Boy" said he's been clean for more than three months after hitting rock bottom in May and checking into rehab.
De La Hoya, 38, confirmed that scandalous pictures -- of him in high heels, fishnet stockings and frilly lingerie -- are real.
"Let me to tell you, yes, yes, it was me [in those pictures]," he told the news show "Aqui y Ahora," or "Here and Now."
The pictures also showed the bizarrely dressed boxer frolicking with Siberian knockout Milana Dravnel.
The Post published the photos on Nov. 15, 2007, following which De La Hoya insisted the pictures were frauds.
Now the ex-fighter has come clean: "I am tired now of lying, of lying to the public and of lying to myself."
He said he was high on booze and cocaine when the racy photos were snapped.
After De La Hoya launched a campaign to discredit the wild images, Dravnel filed a federal lawsuit against him, claiming his handlers duped her into agreeing that the photos were manipulated.
They settled the lawsuit out of court and both sides clammed up, citing a confidentiality agreement.
But courthouse sources told The Post yesterday that De La Hoya shelled out a whopping $20 million to Dravnel to go away. The deal also called for her to give back the heels, lingerie and fishnets that she kept after their kinky photo session.
