Paris Hiton has seen her fair share of trouble as a high-living Hollywood socialite. But her unhealthy lifestyle nearly took out one of her ex-boyfriends.
“Paris was the worst person in the world for me to hook up with,” says Backstreet Boy Nick Carter.
The 33-year-old boy bander has a new memoir, coming out called Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It, and he’s dishing about the couple’s 2003-2004 relationship. He said the notorious party girl “fed my worst impulses as far as partying.”
He says his biggest regret was taking ecstasy because “the amount I did caused changes to my brain that are responsible for my bouts of depression now.”
The singer, who has been sober since 2008, says that he used to drink a bottle of vodka a night and take cocaine and ecstasy. He said staying clean is still a struggle but that he’s “constantly reminding myself that I like this person better than the person I used to be.”
He said during the time he dated Paris, things got so bad “things could have ended in tragedy.”
