JUDY GARLAND DRUG SHOCKER

Judy Garland's other daughter Lorna Luft secret drugs confession!
 
According to a shocking tell-all, singer/actress Lorna Luft was forced to conceal her mother Judy Garland's long-standing booze and drug addictions.  The one time child star Garland died of an accidental overdose in 1969 at the age of 47 as her career and love life spiraled out of control.

Luft, who was 16 when her mother ODed, reveals in Reagan presidential daughter Patti Davis' book The Lives Our Mothers Leave Us how Judy made her caretaker of her pill popping habit.

 "It was my responsibility as a kid to regulate her pills," Luft admitted.

"I remember sitting in hotel rooms, opening capsules, emptying out the drugs and filling the capsules with sugar.

"I was taught to never, ever call an ambulance, no matter what happened. I was to call my father (Sid Luft)  - never an ambulance because it would get into the press.

"I was taught at a young age to lie, to deceive, to manipulate."

And to dispense uppers and downers -- with a Vodka chaser.
