Former boxing champion Oscar De La Hoya, is opening up about his infidelity and the drug addiction that ultimately led to him checking into a rehab facility.

In an interview with Univision, De La Hoya admits to abusing alcohol and cocaine and even contemplating suicide.

I don’t have the courage to take my own life, but I was thinking about it,” De La Hoya said. “There were drugs [as well]. My drug of choice was cocaine and alcohol. Cocaine was recent. The last 2 years, last 2 1/2 years and I depended more in the alcohol than the cocaine. It took me to a place where I felt safe. It took me to a place where I felt as if nobody can say anything to me. It took me to a place where I just can reach out and grab my mom [who died of breast cancer in 1990].”

The Golden Boy CEO also admitted to being unfaithful to his wife of almost ten years, singer Millie Corretjer.

We are obviously not talking a Tiger Woods here, but I was unfaithful,” De La Hoya admitted.

After undergoing treatment at the Betty Ford clinic in May 2011, De La Hoya is said to be three months sober.
