Jackie O addresses cruel 20 year drug rumour on air

Kyle and Jackie O never shy away from putting the hard questions on their guests, and this week the duo got a taste of their own medicine when Jackie was forced to address long-standing rumours while presenting on air.

The 45-year-old was hosting an interview with Aussie singer Amy Shark and co-host Kyle Sandilands, 49, on The Kyle and Jackie O Show when the topic of cocaine use came up and Jackie revealed she had been dogged by rumours she abused the drug for two decades.

Kyle joked the mum of one copped cocaine rumours because of her ‘caved in nose’, the nasty jab prompting Jackie to insist she had never touched the drug ‘in her whole life’.

Incredulous, Jackie O turned to Amy asking, “Can you believe – how can I have that rumour?”


Jackie previously discussed the rumours earlier this year when she revealed her sudden weight loss in the early 2000’s sparked the rumour - and it hasn’t died down since.

She added at the time that a handful of industry people had stoked the flames of the rumour looking to cause drama, a tactic that evidently worked with the host still discussing it almost 20 years on.

Amy boldly asked if Jackie had dabbled while living on the Gold Coast - a notorious Queensland party scene where Shark hails from - to which the now-laughing host responded, ‘no, never!’.

Kyle did let slip that she had a history of dating purveyors of other substances, however.

“She loved the weed dealer dudes!” he said.

“He was my boyfriend,” Jackie confirmed

It comes after the hosts well and truly stirred the pot while chatting to SAS Australia star Candice Warner on the show.

The duo asked her about her approach to sex with husband David Warner before a big match, only to prompt an eyebrow-raising response.

“Whatever he wants,” Candice cheekily responded.

They also had he discuss the ongoing feud with former friend Roxy Jacenko, with Candice attempting to bury the hatchet, only to have the PR queen hit back calking her ‘delusional’ for the suggestion.
