OH NO! El DeBarge RELAPSES & Goes Back To Rehab!
Just as he was making one of the most major comebacks of 2010/2011 after 16 years off the music scene, El DeBarge has reportedly checked himself into a drug rehab facility.
Details on what went down, and the surprising celebrity who helped El check himself into the recovery facility, when you read on...
El DeBarge has relapsed on his road to sobriety. According to BlackVoices.com, it was known that El went back to his drug and alcohol ways in the past recent weeks. And his record label, Geffen Records, confirmed today that El voluntarily checked himself into a recovery facility.
El's statement reads:
"I hate to disappoint my fans but it is necessary for me to take the time to work on me so that I may continue to share El DeBarge my music and my story with everyone. I thank everyone in advance for their prayers and well wishes and hope that you will respect my privacy during this time."
Reportedly, 50 Cent, who appears on El's newest album Second Chance, played an integral part in getting the "Second Chance" singer to go back to rehab.
El was set to kick off his new "Intimacy" tour on February 17th in Houston with Ledisi, but his appearances have now been postponed. The tour will reportedly start without him.
We're still rooting for you El. Get well soon!
