Kings Of Leon Drama Continues! Bandmates Reportedly Want Caleb Followill In Rehab

| Filed under: Music MinuteSad SadKings Of LeonRehab

caleb followill might have a drinking problem

Unfortunately, we saw this one coming.

To recap, Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill got very sick while performing during a Friday night show in Dallas, blamed it on the heat, and then couldn't perform the rest of the show.

Following the show, Caleb's brother Jared tweeted an apology to fans, and made it clear that there were BIGGER issues going on then just heat exhaustion.

Then yesterday we learned that all the U.S. shows in Kings of Leon's tour are being cancelled, and in a statement released by their rep, the reason given was that Caleb is "suffering from vocal issues and exhaustion."

Now, a source close to the band is saying that Caleb's big issue is actually related to alcohol:

"They are trying to get Caleb to go to rehab. It is mostly for alcohol. [That's why] they ended up canceling the whole tour…he drinks like a fish."

And here's what a second source had to say about it:

"It's true. Caleb's drinking is out of control and they are trying to get him into rehab. It's a dark demon he has been fighting for awhile."

If Caleb does in fact have a serious drinking problem, which it sounds like he def might, then we hope he takes that difficult step and seeks treatment.

What do U think about all of this? Is Caleb Followill suffering from alcoholism?

    Don't you dare fucking touching to Caleb Followill.

    So what,now that the poor Amy is no longer there, you need another target to kill ?

    He is well surrounded,his brothers and family will do whatever it takes, if it's true.
    Knowing your blog,it can be full of shit too.

    Love you Caleb, and love KOL.
    I'm sick for a year, and your music and lyrics did help me a lot.
    Like a true fan, I'll stay faithful.

    I can't believe so many people actually thought he cancelled because of the heat. Especially when he mentioned he was gonna go backstage and drink some beer. lol!

    ProTip: Alcoholism is really serious to severe Mental/Spiritual Illness that people attempt to deal with by using alcohol.

    I know people will drone on and on about genes and such. Nope.

    It does run in families, but then, so does speaking Chinese.

    The mental illness picked up in childhood often manifests in alcoholism and is spread to the next generation. That is, if is doesn't kill you like Amy Winehouse.

    The clueless will want to stay in denial about this. Idiots.

    Thanks for posting and keeping us updated. I care, as do all the other fans. He may have a problem but it looks like they're taking steps to work on it. I hope it goes well and Caleb can get better.

    Someone told me they've been touring for like three years straight. Jeebus. Slow the eff down and balance your lives, have some normal relationships and things outside of music, and drinking won't look like such a freakin' escape.

    I hope he gets the help he needs.

    I'm consistently facinated by the number of people in the public eye who continue to turn to drugs and alcohol even knowing the consenquences they can possibly pay for getting caught up in too much consumption of it. The one common deniminator that all of these people have is that they achieved a whole lot of fame quickly and a lot of them don't know how to handle fame. There is no textbook or how to pamphlet out there that teaches you how to navigate your way through it. Its almost like being thrown to the wolves. Its seems like drugs and alcohol is a means of escape from the pressure that is put on them.This is why the media should be more mindful and careful of how they handle stories like this. We saw what happened to Amy Winehouse. I'm sure the public bashing and media hounding didn't help her any. I've seen many post where people are being awfully hard on Caleb and they seem to forget that the guy is only human.
