Grace Jones claims she once "almost killed someone" during a tequila-drinking contest in Belgium
Grace Jones "almost killed someone" during a tequila-drinking contest.
The singer enjoys drinking the potent alcoholic beverage and claims she once took part in a competition which left one competitor seriously ill.
She said: "I did almost kill somebody in a tequila-drinking contest in Belgium. An ambulance had to come and get him. He was in hospital for three days.
"I had drunk a bottle. I'm the tequila queen."
Grace admits her love of the drink has left her in some awkward situations, not least when she was forced to leave a car because she was so inebriated.
She said: "Tequila is the devil in my life. I once drank so much on my birthday in Beverly Hills that Sven - who I was living with at the time - let me out of the car and drove off. I woke up under a stairwell in my Bulgari jewellery and Claude Montana fur with a bump on my head."
