This is so unfortunate.
Stone Temple Pilots bassist Robert Deleo is apparently so concerned about the band's troubled frontman Scott Weiland's possible relapse that he's hesitant to go on tour to promote their new album!
Weiland was previously treated for a heroin addiction in 2007, but now Deleo asserts that he's been showing up late to promotional photoshoots, popping pills, and drinking heavily.
"He can't got on tour. He needs help… He thinks he's clean just because he's not shooting heroin. But he's popping pills."
We hope, for at least his two young children's sake, Weiland realizes how deadly a prescription pill addiction is and modifies his behavior before it's too late!
