<p><span></span>For the first time ever, <strong>Angelina Jolie</strong>'s former drug dealer, Franklin Meyer, is speaking out exclusively to<em> Life & Style </em>about the actress' past drug use. Among the shocking secrets Meyer shares only with <em>Life & Style</em> - on newsstands now - he reveals Angelina frequently used both heroin and cocaine in front of him. <br />
"We'd see each other two to three times a week when she was in town. She would buy cocaine and also heroin," Meyer tells Life & Style, who first met Angelina in February 1997, when she and a male friend came to buy drugs from him at NYC's Chelsea Hotel. She was just 21, and soon became a regular. "She would generally spend about $100 each time -- that would buy maybe half a gram of coke and a 10th of a gram of heroin. She would snort the cocaine and the heroin in front of me. It didn't seem to matter to her who else was there."
Occasionally, he says, he would even go to her apartment in the Ansonia building on Manhattan's Upper West Side, and she would do drugs there. When he first saw her place, he got a shock: The walls of her apartment were covered with photos of dead bodies! "I assumed they were real bodies. They were like places or apartments where there were murders. I don't know where someone would get pictures like that."
But Meyer says the most bizarre thing about Angelina was that she was obsessed, even then, with adopting a child. "She would say to me, 'I think I would really like to adopt a kid.' I was shocked.... In the middle of the drugs and the knives, she'd be talking about wanting to adopt a child," Franklin tells Life & Style.
