Euphoria turned Fike into a global star but he was already enjoying a career as a singer-songwriter. Fans loved his romantic relationship with his co-star Hunter Schafer. But it shocked them when they learned that he was high throughout the filming process (via BuzzFeed).
He was already a drug addict and spent time in rehab before his new job. But being on a TV show about drug use didn’t help his mental state. Fike revealed that showrunners almost gave him the boot but in the end, he stuck around. Now he’s sober again and says he’s in a happier place.
