The Jersey Shore has been rocked by a cocaine scandal.
RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively that one of the cast members of the hit show was indulging in cocaine during filming in Miami.
And the cast member’s drug use was known to others.
“Miami is obviously a big drug city,” one source told RadarOnline.com, “and when this cast member want to score, it wasn’t hard.”
In fact, the hardest thing was avoiding the cameras that constantly follow around the stars.
“But the cast members are veterans by now and they know how to get rid of the cameras when they want to,” the source said.
RadarOnline.com knows the identity of the star, but has chosen not to name the cast member.
MTV is apparently unaware of what was going on, the source said.
“Finding someone to buy drugs from in South Beach is as easy as asking for it,” the source said. “It’s not hard and everyone is discreet.”
The cast members do get some time to go off by themselves and when the cameras weren’t rolling that’s when the extracurricular activity began.
“A connection was made and that’s all it took,” the source told RadarOnline.com. “A lot of things were done in code. Other people knew about it but no one ratted out this person.”
Drugs were not done in the house where everyone lived and the individual who scored coke was very careful to keep it away from the spotlight.
“But they all know each other so well. They will never admit it, never admit it happened,” the source added. “But it was an open secret among some.
“What do you expect from kids this age who suddenly have money? It was recreational. That’s no excuse for sure. That’s just the way it was.”
