FORMER Mr. Universe Calum von Moger has revealed his struggle with demons that caused him to fall from a second story window.
The 31-year-old fought for his life after diving at his home in Melbourne, Australia earlier this month.
Appearing in Melbourne Magistrates Court via video link, the bodybuilder pleaded guilty to possession of drugs including testosterone and Viagra, the Daily Mail reported.
The court heard the three-time Mr Universe winner spent a total of 11 days in hospital after falling from the window on May 6.
Moger, who is best known for his portrayal of Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 2018 film Bigger, suffered a serious spinal injury and underwent major surgery.
He was placed in an induced coma, said fellow bodybuilder and Youtuber Nick Trigilli.
He also added that Moger was under the influence of drugs at the time after battling a methamphetamine addiction.
Before his downfall, he shared a moving message with his fans on Instagram.
The court case relates to an earlier incident when Moger was found with drugs in his car and arrested on January 31.
He was arrested after cops spotted his car was unregistered.
Von Moger pleaded guilty to seven counts, including possession of methamphetamine, cannabis, testosterone cypionate, proviplex and Viagra.
He admitted to using testosterone for the past ten years because his body can no longer produce it naturally.
He also claimed to have used Viagra while “competing”.
Von Moger’s lawyer, Bernard Campigli, told the court that his client suffered from depression.
He said that after his arrest, Moger spent a night behind bars, which was a “sobering experience”.
Campigli said: “Unfortunately he got out of hand soon after.
“He had been taking testosterone for several years… (and) other substances came into play, and he has struggled for the past few months to find balance.”
He added that Von Moger would participate in a rehabilitation program.
Von Moger was ordered to pay $500 to the court fund.
