Revealed - Bruce Lee was chasing the dragon...<br />
<br />
PICTURED: Bruce Lee's Handwritten Letter asking for drugs using Coca-Cola codeword<br />
<br />
Bombshell letters revealing martial arts star Bruce Lee's extensive secret drug use before his premature death have sold for £335,000 ($462,500) following a bidding war.<br />
<br />
The Enter the Dragon star wrote over 40 letters to fellow actor Robert Baker openly discussing his spiralling drug habit.<br />
<br />
While it was whispered in Hollywood that Lee partook in illicit substances in the early 1970s, these previously unseen letters not only confirm those rumours but reveal his dependence on cocaine and other hard drugs.<br />
<br />
The letters were bought by an anonymous collector in a US flea market, who is today celebrating after they doubled their pre-sale estimate with Heritage Auctions, of Dallas, Texas.
