In an interview with Univision, he spilled the beans of his marital issues including addiction of drugs and alcohol.
'My drug of choice was cocaine and alcohol. Cocaine was recent. The last two years. And I depended more in the alcohol than the cocaine.'
While his spokeswoman said,
'His head's too small and it doesn't even look like his body.'
He, however, revealed that he was dishonest to his wife and they even parted temporarily. He even compared his deeds with Tiger Woods saying,
'We are obviously not talking a Tiger Woods here, but I was unfaithful.'

Oscar De La Hoya: At The Center of $2 Million Over Sex Tape
La Hoya has reportedly become the victim of an extortion attempt. He is at the center of an alleged $2 million extortion plot as investigated by the FBI.
Sources stated that Hoya was targeted by two women who threatened him that they would be releasing the tape if he didn't pay him $2 million.
Golden Boy Promotions chairman who met the ladies via dating website in February 2018 began messaging on Snapchat afterward.
It's believed that the multi-millionaire former boxing champion refused to pay or even negotiate with the ladies. They approached celebrity sex tape broker Kevin Blatt with the video.
The tape included the shocking sex tape with Hoya totally naked in front of two women, while in one scene the women were performing sex acts on him with kitchen utensils.
The ladies also threatened Hoya's ex-girlfriend, Moakler and tried to humiliate her and her daughter.
A spokesperson for the FBI told DailyMail,
'We cannot confirm and or deny the existence of an investigation.'
However, Hollywood sex tape broker Blatt said:
'Yes, two women tried to extort Oscar De La Hoya. I was contacted by someone claiming to be an Instagram model and she put me in touch with another girl.'
'I took a meeting, I met the girl in Hollywood at a Coffee Bean, she was young and very skittish, she wore a hoodie and big glasses and tried very hard to disguise herself, she gave me a fake name of Jessica.'
FBI has neither confirmed nor denied as the investigations are still ongoing.
