Nicola Roberts Reveals She Begged Driver For Booze After Early Girls Aloud Criticism
Nicola Roberts has revealed she begged her driver to buy her booze while struggling with criticism in the early days of Girls Aloud.
The singer recently admitted that she ended up in therapy after being taunted for her looks when she first found fame.
Nicola suffered with depression after being criticised for her pale skin and ginger hair and admits she was particularly hurt when branded "The Ugly One" by Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles.
Speaking to the Daily Star, she said: "Being singled out as 'The Ugly One' led to depression. It's funny, I was too young for so many things but you thought I'd cope with being told I'm ugly over and over."
The Cinderella's Eyes singer even admitted to pleading with her driver for alcohol when feeling at her lowest as she was still too young to buy drink.
She said: "I would beg my driver to buy me vodka when I was still under age."
However, the star, who is now content with her looks, admits that she'd rather splurge on fashion than sessions with a shrink.
She said: "Therapy didn't make me stronger as it's too expensive.
"I'd rather sit there thinking until I couldn't think any more, then reward myself with a pair of Louboutins."
