Uhm. This screengrab came from ONTD.
Reportedly, recovering addict and X Factor contestant Chris Rene was trying to DM one of his “friends” from Santa Cruz last night after his performance and he mistyped, then deleted the tweet.
Certainly, the message doesn’t prove that Chris is actually using. I hope he was joking with a friend. But it’s still a little unsettling. Hard drugs are hard to quit. Relapse rates are pretty high.
I still maintain that entering a high stakes, high pressure situation with only a couple of months of sobriety under Chris’s belt was risky.
ETA: Was the tweet a photoshop or a hack? It’s unclear at this point.
