One quarter of the Black Eyed Peas -- the band's rapper, Taboo -- has admitted that he used to regularly embarrass his bandmates.
During a recent chat with BANG Showbiz, Taboo said he used to have a serious drinking problem.
"I was an embarrassment to the crew. This was during the big-time, yeah man. From 2003 to 2007 when I got arrested, I was a f**king mess," he said.
"I was always drunk, doing drugs. It didn't matter, man."
He's been straight for four years and this has been the most enjoyable time of his career with the Black Eyed Peas.
"I almost lost everything and I just thought, 'F**k this man.' Now I'm four years sober and I'm loving life and enjoying the great things that are happening now that I've become clear headed and sober."
