Steve Tyler has admitted that he has shovelled at least 5 to 6 million dollars worth of cocaine up his nose.
In an interview on 60 Minutes this Sunday night, reporter Liz Hayes asks the 65-year-old rocker if he had snorted 20 million bucks worth of cocaine up his
"Realistically, 5 or 6. But it doesn't matter. You also could say I snorted half of Peru, but it doesn't matter," the Herald Sun quoted him as saying.
Tyler, who had been sober for over 20 years, had a relapse with prescription meds in the late 2000's but was successful with treatment for that addiction in 2009.
Since coming clean, Tyler has been a judge on American Idol, always dressed in his signature flowing scarves, and says his relationship with fellow band member and guitarist, Joe Perry is back on track.
