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!

OMG THANK YOU 50cent for

OMG THANK YOU 50cent for taking care of El and pointing him in the right direction. He was working too hard and I appreciate youre convincing him to stop the madness and to get the help he needs. He needs to spend more time in recovery and surround himself with rehab folks. As much as his business associates love him, they dont know how to help El to take deep care of himself. He is fragile and in deep need of support so he can learn ONE DAY AT A TIME to really take care of HIMSELF. Its too hard when you have to please so many people in the business, to not let them all down, you end up neglecting your own needs. Please take care El. Get ready for the 3rd chance Boo!

God still has you El. He's

God still has you El. He's not forsaken you. He'll lead you . . .and warn you before the trap comes. I've personally experienced His warning! A few weeks ago a burden of prayer was placed upon me for you. I sensed the enemy attacking! Praise God that you've entered Rehab, my brother. Wounds can be cleaned and healed, but sometimes they need to be lanced and cut open for the poison to be released. Therapy can help with that. I love you and will continue hold you in prayer. You will be embraced again by your fans, TRUE FRIENDS, and of course your family!!!

My prayer for El is that he

My prayer for El is that he stay focused on getting well, not for his fans but for himself and his children, but mostly for himself. Remember what it felt like before you fell from grace and I know you know what grace is, believe in yourself you can recover, it is attainable it is. May God give you the strength to endure what ever comes before you. Knock and the door shall open for you. God Bless El.

My children played with El

My children played with El and his brothers and sisters in Grand Rapids, Michigan. They were a very large wonderfully talented family. My heart and prayers are with El. As fas as I'm concerned, he can have a third, fourth and however many chances it will take. I will not sit in judgement of him. He is battling many demons. I will support him in prayer and with love.

Addiction is a real illness

Addiction is a real illness people. This is a truly gifted man who the devil would love to sift like wheat and make another example of. Maybe the industry and access to the drugs is just too much for him- Everyone can't handle those demons so my prayers are sincerley with him. Through God all things are possible; but sometimes you have to stay out of those old playgrounds to completley shake the habit..Bless you honey:)
