Rod Stewart isn’t gay, but he did stick cocaine up his you-know-what.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member has opened up, a lot, this week about his debauched history. Stewart is releasing an autobiography, Rod: The Autobiography, and in it he discusses some of the most famous and disgusting rumors that have circulated about him during his life.
And just a little heads up, if the topic of ingesting drugs via the rectum or having oral sex with multiple sailors offends you, you might want to stop reading.
Today, the legendary rocker addressed a long standing rumor about how Rod Stewart had oral sex with so many men one night in the 70s that he had to have his stomach pumped. The story, according to rumor, is that Stewart ended up in a San Diego hospital after an oral sex orgy at a gay bar with a group of sailors sometime in the 70s.
Gawker reports that the rumor may have originated from the mouth of famous rockers like Elton John, David Bowie, or artist Andy Warhol. Stewart told Couric that the rumor, which is false, was started by his scorned publicist Tony Toon.
“This is what happened. I used to have this guy work for me… I had to fire him because he did something terrible… And he started this rumor about me. It was horrible. It’s just not true. I’m as heterosexual as they come.”
So Rod Stewart didn’t have an oral sex orgy with a bunch of sailors at a gay bar. So drop it. He’s not gay. He’s as heterosexual as they come. Oh, but he did stick a bunch of cocaine up his butt.
“As far as the drugs are concerned, I was never an addict. I was never, you know, in rehab. It never affected my family or my relationships or anything. I was just a social user…We found another method of taking the drug,” he said. “We put them in a little pill like the French do them, (a) suppository. We did that for a little while. Are we still on the air?”
