Miley Cyrus “Drug Overdose” Cover Story Is BOGUS!

Truth rating: 0

(Life & Style)

Miley Cyrus had a “drug overdose,” reports Life & Style.

In a new cover story, the tabloid claims “a deadly binge [left] her unconscious for hours before being hospitalized.”

According to the magazine, Cyrus’ recent hospitalization was the result of “months of over-the-top partying — including rampant pot smoking and a drug binge that ended in an overdose.”

This is 100 percent false, but let’s see how Life & Style tries to play it.

A so-called “eyewitness” — never identified — tells the outlet that he or she “saw Miley overdose firsthand.”

When did this supposedly happen?

Last June — nearly a year ago, during a “weekend with friends” in Palm Springs.

“She and her friends were drinking beers and vodka cocktails by the pool,” says the purported witness, telling Life & Style, “We got to chatting, and Miley eventually asked my group if we wanted to go behind a hedge to smoke. She pulled out a huge bag of weed — it was so strong, and she was taking massive hits.”

The tabloid’s tipster continues, “Miley went from being really chatty to completely comatose in a matter of minutes. She could barely walk.”

Wait… so the big “drug overdose” was Cyrus smoking pot ten months ago?

And the big revelation of this supposed crisis took nearly a year?

Well, Life & Style pads its story with plenty of old quotes from Cyrus about her admitted drug experimentation, and speculation about what might be happening behind closed doors at parties.

There’s no new or useful information in the entire article.

Instead, Life & Style just uses Cyrus’ (real, and completely explained) hospitalization as an excuse to plaster its cover with the words “drug overdose.”

“One of her best friends is absolutely worried that this isn’t the last time she’ll end up in the hospital because of her insane lifestyle,” one “insider” tells the tabloid. “It’s scary.”

No, what’s “scary” is that Cyrus’ fans will see this on newsstands and wrongly assume the pop star actually had a drug overdose.

It’s “outrageous and totally false,” a source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop.
