Pete Wentz is opening up about his drug addiction after divorcing Ashlee Simpson in February 2011. Wentz says the addiction to Xanax and Klonopin, began from insomnia and anxiety from flying but soon spiraled out of control.”I was probably physically and mentally addicted. It started from insomnia and anxiety from flying, then it spiraled.”

“I felt like a loser already. I’d basically gone from being the guy in Fall Out Boy to being the guy, who, like, hangs out all day. I didn’t see how I’d ever come out on the other side.” He goes on to say he became paranoid of everything, “I was scared of everything. I thought there were always people listening to me,” he confessed. “Like, I had my house searched for bugs. It was crazy.”‘

After going to regular therapy and wanting to be a good dad to 4-year-old son, Bronx…a healthier Wentz now has a girlfriend, model Meagan Camper and his band Fall Out Boy announced they are getting back together and heading on tour.
