London, Hollywood : Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins has confessed that she took cocaine, ecstasy and cannabis, and that she is ashamed of her drug past.
The golden-voiced mezzo-soprano, who is glad she hasn't 'ended up like Amy Winehouse', admitted that she took cocaine and ecstasy at private parties and in the toilet of a London nightclub.
The 28-year-old, who started taking drugs when she came to London, further said that she decided to make her guilt public intending to warn others off the deadly habit.
However, she revealed that her hangovers were so unbearable that she 'didn't want to live the next day'.
"When we got back to my friend's house, I was offered cocaine by someone. I thought it would be fun, because everyone else seemed to be having a good time after taking cocaine," the Telegraph quoted her as telling the Mail.
"After taking cocaine, I felt absolutely terrible. It was like the worst hangover in the world times ten, times a hundred. And I'd not be in a good mental place afterwards either. I'd feel depressed and paranoid, it was awful," she added.
