Test Results Show Tarkan's Drug Use?

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Screencap of reportAn article in Star Gazete today claims that the blood reports taken from Tarkan during his four day in custody following a drug-related bust has come back positive, contrary to the recording artist's statements from his lawyer that Tarkan is completely innocent of all charges against him (see left pic).

Although not run by any other paper at time of writing, elements of heroin and cocaine were found in the singer's blood and urine, Star Gazete writes.

The paper also claims to have seen the transcripts of Tarkan's phone conversations tapped by narcotics during the anti-drug investigation, and presented to the court, which are said to reveal Tarkan getting drugs off a businessman with the help of the singer's own chauffeur - yet more claims denied by Tarkan's defence lawyer.

Printing the previous news that Tarkan could get up to 9.5 years jail time if found guilty of possession of drugs, the article re-prints the claims that Tarkan had in fact "confessed" to using drugs, purportedly blaming it on the "heavy stress that fame brings".
