Rupert Murdoch’s granddaughter used ketamine so often during high school that peers gave her the nickname “ K-angel ” after the drug, she claims.
Charlotte Freud is the first to admit that she had ‘one of the most privileged upbrings of all time’, raised by her father PR guru Matthew Freud and Elisabeth Murdoch, the second daughter of media mogul Rupert.
But the 21-year-old revealed that she struggled with several scandals involving her family and ‘overcompensated’ for her glamorous upbringing by rebelling at school.
The aspiring singer has revealed on a podcast that she became “ the biggest, meanest rebel ” at school and became heavily involved in drug use.
Charlotte Freud (pictured) is the first to admit she had ‘one of the most privileged upbrings of all time’, raised by her father’s PR guru, Matthew Freud and Elisabeth Murdoch, media mogul Rupert’s eldest daughter.
The 21-year-old revealed that she struggled with scandals involving her family and ‘overcompensated’ for her glamorous upbringing by rebelling at school.
She said the use of the drug earned her the nickname ‘K-angel’, after the equine sedative, ketamine, which became her drug of choice.
“I was a crazy party girl, but it was a persona,” she said.
‘Cocaine made me nauseous. But after doing my first line of ketamine, I thought, “ I’m addicted. ” ‘
Scandals involving her family, including the revelation that her father, now 57, fathered a love child, turned her into a “ huge ball of shame. ” [but] when I found ketamine it all just went away ‘.
After her parents ‘divorce, she moved in with her’ very nice ‘father and admitted:’ I did all those things at home.

“There were a lot of parties … I hit rock bottom and had some medical emergencies, but nothing stopped me.”
Now sober for seven months, Charlotte can’t imagine getting that low again.
“I can’t describe the feeling of being trusted and having people who love you,” she said.
Charlotte has long been a somewhat unexpected figure in her wealthy and privileged family.
In 2019, she told her Instagram followers that her mom was worried about her fashion choices leading up to a family wedding.
She said Elisabeth even hired a personal shopper for her to make sure the dress she chose didn’t show too much cleavage.

Rupert Murdoch (pictured in the center with his son Lachlan and Lachlan’s wife Sarah) has given his family ‘a great privilege’ of his wealth
“ My grandmother is getting married, so Mum sends me to a personal shopper to make sure I deck my t ** s for the ceremony, ” the then 18-year-old told her 6,548 followers.
She later shared some of the looks, with comments like, “If I have to look ridiculous in exchange for free champagne, so be it” and “the *** I’m doing for this family, gawd.”
But growing up in such a powerful family has its advantages, especially for an aspiring musician like Charlotte.
For her 17th birthday, Charlotte’s PR guru dad was able to persuade U2 frontman Bono to sing for her.
He planned a party for then-Vogue editor Edward Enninful and a host of fashion icons – including Victoria Beckham – and invited Charlotte to tag along.
When the clock struck midnight on her birthday, the entire guest list began chanting her happy birthday, with Bono at the helm.
