Fashion designer John Galliano’s trial begins Wednesday for his anti-Semitic tirade earlier this year. The defense will claim he was made “ill” by a triple addiction to booze, sleeping pills, and Valium, which, his lawyers say, he took “like candy.” “The combined effect of these drugs is a state of complete and utter abandon,” his lawyer Aurelien Hamelle said Tuesday. "When he was in that state he had no way of knowing or remembering what he said." Galliano faces a six-month prison sentence and a fine of around $30,000.
