Artie Lange and Howard Stern go way back
Howard Stern and Artie Lange started working together on The Howard Stern Show in 2001, after Lange replaced Jackie Martling.
Lange remained a close friend and radio sidekick to Stern until 2009, when he was kicked off the show due to struggling with a serious drug habit. He has been in and out of rehab ever since, and previously suffered with a heroin addiction.
Of his dismissal from the Howard Stern show, Lange said in a previous interview: “Howard did nothing wrong. All Howard did was try to help me. I love him so much. It’s a shame that anyone in my life would feel any guilt. I f–ked up.”
However, it seems that Lange has had a change of heart and tweeted this in response to the recent Howard Stern accusations: “Shame on U (sic) Howard! Take ur head out of Ellens a** u phony f**k & ask yourself why all of ur ex loyal servants hate u! Just sad.”
It’s unknown what may have transpired between the two in the meantime that sparked Lange’s change of heart.
