Aaron said he “didn’t really touch it” until he was “about 23,” just after appearing on season 9 of “Dancing With the Stars” in 2009.
“I started going to Staples and Office Depot and different places, buying it with cash so it wouldn’t show up on receipts or anything like that, so no one could track me down. “, he admitted. “I was huffing because I was really stupid and sad, but that’s really no excuse. I was huffing because I’m a drug addict.
