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!
