With her solo career and work with the Black Eyed Peas, Fergie has proven to be one of the most successful female pop stars of this century, but just a decade ago, things weren’t looking so rosy for the 37-year-old.

Fergie appeared on Oprah’s Next Chapter last Sunday and talked to Oprah about her crippling drug addiction.

She explained she hit rock bottom when her mind began playing tricks on her.

“I started getting really paranoid. So I went one day into this church and I thought that the FBI and the SWAT teams were outside the church…so I had a conversation with God…and I said, “All right, if I go out there and the FBI and the SWAT team’s not out there, then it’s the drugs and I’m stopping.”

“I went outside of the church…and there was no SWAT team, there was no FBI, just me and God. And I kept my promise. That day. That was it.”

Listen to her shocking admission below.
