Richie Sambora Checks Back Into Rehab!

So sad! We're happy to see he's doing the right thing, though!

Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora has checked himself back into rehab to regain his sobriety, after he reportedly fell off the wagon sometime earlier in the year!

His first stint was in 2007, when he checked into the Cirque Lodge in Utah to battle alcoholism in the wake of his divorce from Heather Locklear and his father's death.

A source explains:

”Richie recently has been drinking too much, and wants to get his life together. Richie has had a busy year. I think this was a culmination of all the things that overloaded his life and finally he realized he needed to take care of himself.”

Although he's technically still on tour with Bon Jovi throughout this month in the states, and in Europe in June, his bandmates are reportedly extremely supportive of his decision to take some time for himself!

As are we!

Battling an illness as serious as alcoholism is a daily struggle, and we commend him for realizing so quickly that he needed some extra support to keep himself on track!

Best of luck, Richie! You're in our thoughts!

    'technically still on tour', NOW, how do you 'technically tour' while in rehab? I remember Bon Jovi on the Today show, back in 2007, WITHOUT SAMBORA.. Actually, with/without… it really does not matter… and THAT SHOULD BE A WAKE UP CALL FOR SAMBORA! BonJovi-cannot go on without Jon, can go on without ANYONE ELSE. Unless Richie hates touring, and has alot of money, he better get his LIFE TOGETHER AND GET CLEAN AND DRY, no only for his body, but for his daughter and his financial future.

    Re: justtfax – I totally agree with you. Jon Bon Jovi is the only irreplaceable member of this band.

    Doesn't he know that they can't cure ugly in rehab?

    Sorry but the band is not Bon Jovi without Richie. Justtfax you clearly are not a fan or else you would know the brotherly bond that exists between the four of them. Bon Jovi is a BAND not one person and Jon is the first to point that out. After being around for 27 years and still being the number one touring act in the world, as well as selling over 130 millions records…I hardly think he needs to worry about his "financial future"…what a joke…. Get well Richie…we are all supporting you in your efforts to get well…your fans love you and most importantly your daughter needs you….

    Yeah, when he was younger he looked ok, but now….wow….he looks like an unattractive old dude/chick with really bad hair…..Alcohol is a killer in every way, no doubt about it….I did not realize people actually pay and see Bon Jovi these days….wow. Either way, hopefully his daughter will be ok due to his alcoholism….children often bear the brunt of drunks….no joke.

    Rock star rehab enables rock stars to go out and do it some more. Sometimes sobriety clicks, and other times addiction can only be staved off and thwarted for a while. Is he haunted by something? Maybe he should make amends.
