Miss USA Admits Addiction

“I didn’t think I had any kind of issue going into rehab. I even said, ‘I’ll get some free therapy,’ or something like that – and that was so ridiculous,” says Conner. “But I’ve realized I do have an issue. I suffer from the disease of alcoholism and addiction. And if there’s anything that I want people to know it’s the severity of this disease and what it can do to people.”

The Kentucky native, who recently turned 21, spent 31 days in rehabilitation and still holds her crown.
