De La Hoya

Cocaine Use Triggered Marital Infidelity

We broke the story ... Oscar voluntarily checked himself into a treatment facility in California for substance abuse issues a few weeks ago. 

Oscar has told friends he does not believe he hit bottom, but checked himself into rehab before things got totally out of control. 

As one source put it ... Oscar has had fidelity issues and it seems to correlate with substance abuse ... and that's a matter he's dealing with in rehab.

What a load of crap. Blaming cheating on alcohol or drugs is just another way to not take responsibility. I bet he will come out and say he is in treatment for sex addiction next.

Coke had nothing to do with him cheating; that's an excuse to make people feel sorry for him for having a "disease" of drug use. He's full of crap.

His infidelity may also correlate with his zipper being down. Hope he gets zipper therapy while he's in there.

Men are so full of crap. If you can't keep it in your pants it's your fault. Period. Stop blaming booze or whatever else for having no integrity.

Me thinks TMZ has a De La Hoya mistress waiting in the wings. Damage control first thought, right boys? LOL

I pray for him a great recovery. And also pray his wife can forgive him for the infidelity. It seems like no one is faithful these days. Hollywood or not...Get it together!
