UPDATE: Meyer also tells Life & Style that Angelina was high on cocaine when she went on 'Charlie Rose' in 2000 to promote 'Girl, Interrupted.'
"She was at my place. I was filming her and she'd taken coke," he said. "She went directly to do The Charlie Rose Show."

PREVIOUSLY: The man who claims he was once Angelina Jolie's drug dealer has given an interview to Life & Style, talking about her cocaine and heroin use during the 1990s and her drug-fueled dreams of adopting a child. The magazine also teases exclusive "shocking photos" on its cover.
Over the summer, photos surfaced of Angelina reportedly on a heroin bender, on a dog leash and with tape on her nipples.
Life & Style's press release follows:
For the first time ever, Angelina Jolie's former drug dealer, Franklin Meyer, is speaking out exclusively to Life & Style about the actress' past drug use. Among the shocking secrets Meyer shares only with Life & Style - on newsstands now - he reveals Angelina frequently used both heroin and cocaine in front of him.
"We'd see each other two to three times a week when she was in town. She would buy cocaine and also heroin," Meyer tells Life & Style, who first met Angelina in February 1997, when she and a male friend came to buy drugs from him at NYC's Chelsea Hotel. She was just 21, and soon became a regular. "She would generally spend about $100 each time - that would buy maybe half a gram of coke and a 10th of a gram of heroin. She would snort the cocaine and the heroin in front of me. It didn't seem to matter to her who else was there."
Occasionally, he says, he would even go to her apartment in the Ansonia building on Manhattan's Upper West Side, and she would do drugs there. When he first saw her place, he got a shock: The walls of her apartment were covered with photos of dead bodies! "I assumed they were real bodies. They were like places or apartments where there were murders. I don't know where someone would get pictures like that."
But Meyer says the most bizarre thing about Angelina was that she was obsessed, even then, with adopting a child. "She would say to me, 'I think I would really like to adopt a kid.' I was shocked.... In the middle of the drugs and the knives, she'd be talking about wanting to adopt a child," Franklin tells Life & Style.
