FINALLY, after a decade of denying that those infamous (and frankly rather hot) lingerie photos were him, boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya admitted during an interview on “The Breakfast Club” that they were real, but taken during a low point in his life.
When Charlamagne Tha God asked about the real story behind the pics of Oscar dressed up in fishnets and MMA gloves, he merely replied:
“Just a bad time in my life,” Oscar said … “That’s it.”
Oscar didn’t expand on why it was a bad time — but noted the pics were taken 10 years ago … before his 3 stints in rehab for substance abuse.
De La Hoya was asked if the pics have hurt his career as a boxing promoter — but he shot that down saying he’s only gotten “better” in his personal and professional life since the photos were taken.
“In America, you have the opportunity to rise and shine and get better and be better … and that’s exactly what I’ve done.”
Watch the interview below.
All well and good, Oscar, but why you gotta downplay it, and attach some sort of negative connotation to dressing in ladies underwear and fishnets. It’s fine, honey. Enjoy it. Explore different sides of yourself. Celebrate how great you looked! Nobody’s judging. And if they are, screw them. It’s 2017, and “fetish” is just an archaic word for “fabulous.”
