Former Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss allegedly had methamphetamine in her system when she was arrested back in February, police told FOX 5 Las Vegas yesterday. Rumored to have been considered for the cast of VH1′s Celebrity Rehab 2, she is now working on her sobriety privately.
Her spokesperson told VH1.com, “Heidi Fleiss is being treated privately for her disease of addiction. We will not release any more information so she can focus on regaining her health, which is her top priority at the moment.”
The former madam to the stars, who chronicled her rise from flower shop salesgirl to Hollywood pimp in her 2003 autobiography Pandering, was detained on February 7 in Nye County, Nevada after a caller reported seeing her vehicle driving erratically. Heidi currently owns and operates a laundromat called “Dirty Laundry” in Pahrump, Nevada and stars in a documentary about her life, Heidi Fleiss: The Would Be Madam of Crystal, which airs on HBO on July 21.
