Sarah Palin is quickly discovering the downside of American celebrity. To wit: The National Enquirer gets all up in your personal shit.
The Enquirer is reporting that Palin’s oldest son, Track, was addicted to OxyContin “for nearly the past two years, snorting it, eating it, smoking it and even injecting it.”
An unnamed “source” says: “I’ve seen him snort cocaine, snort and smoke OxyContin, drink booze and smoke weed.”
The Enquirer also claims that 17-year-old Bristol Palin is “as much of a hard partier as Track was.”
According to an unnamed “family friend”: “Bristol was a huge stoner and drinker. I’ve seen her smoke pot and get drunk and make out with so many guys.”
Welcome to the Thunderdome, Gov. Palin!
UPDATE (09/18/08): Sarah Palin to Sean Hannity tonight: “The Army is lucky to have my son.”
An anonymous source to the National Enquirer: “[Track Palin] did what a lot of troubled kids here do. You join the military.”
