Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Artie Lange left nothing out when he revealed all that went down with his former boss, Howard Stern — and the comic's infamous exit off The Stern Show.

In an interview with the Daily Beast the comedian opened up about his drug abuse throughout the years and how Stern didn't necessarily discourage Lange from using.

“You need coke. You’re a lot better on it.” Stern jokingly said to Lange on his first ever appearance on the show. “Go out and get into more trouble, and we’ll have you back on.”

Lange said he "knows" Stern encouraged him but he couldn't blame him or "anyone else" for his addiction. 

"Howard’s genius is seeing which way the wind is blowing in society and acting accordingly," the 50-year-old said.

He claimed Stern didn't stop the rest of his posse from creating a "toxic" environment for the addict.

"At the Stern show, I saw how toxic that entire environment was," Lange said. "You have some people who are without talent who just leeched onto Howard."

"Talentless guys whose entire life is based on pleasing that one person. I saw people who weren’t comedians who thought they could sit in that chair and do what I did. When I went down with the heroin thing, they were clearly making statements about it," Lange alleged. "Like if I died, they would have been almost happy about it, I guarantee it."

It didn't help that Lange said he was going on regular party trips with the Stern Show crew.

"The first time we went to Las Vegas with Howard, I f***ed 11 strippers in four days," Lange claimed. "The Stern Show, this was like rock star shit. We flew into Vegas on a private jet, and there’s a line around the block, and it’s all for us."

Since Lange left the show, he copped to having a strained relationship with Stern that has worsened over time. He said the Shock Jock even banned all of his employees from contacting him.

"They’re not allowed to call me," Lange claimed. "I swear to God, I’ve had people tell me from the show they were worried they were talking to me."

"I don’t talk to Howard. We hate each other’s guts. He can’t stand me for some reason, and I’ve learned to hate him."
