Things are NOT looking up for Leif!

Last we heard from Leif Garrett waaaay back in October, he pled no contest to heroin possession charges, and was forced to partake in a court-ordered rehab program.

Now, we've learned that Leif was involved in a motorcycle accident last month, and he suffered some serious injuries that he's still recovering from.

Apparently he was on his bike, but then a vehicle turned into him, and he fell off the motorcycle.

Here's what a source had to say about it:

"Leif suffered a broken pelvis, and had to undergo surgery. Leif suffered other internal injuries along with minor facial lacerations. But, Leif hasn't relapsed."

"Leif absolutely hasn't had a relapse with drugs or alcohol. Leif is working with his sponsor, and is focused on recovering from the accident, and staying sober. Leif is undergoing daily physical therapy at home."

Good luck with your recovery, Leif! We know it's been a long, tough road, but stay strong! You can beat this thing. We believe in ya!

    Good luck to him.

    I know he's recovering and I wish him well; but I can't get past the eyeliner.

    I agree - the eyeliner is a bit much.

    This is one person that should ride the bus. A broken femur is wildly painful. He's going back on opiates, he'll be a junkie very soon.

    Huge injury at his age. It'll be a loooong physio climb back for him, but he'll have to do the work if he wants his body back completely. On the up side, he's likely to end up far fitter than before he started, and thus may really value his health and being clean because he'll have to work so hard to get it back.

    I hope he doesn't relapse because of this. Addicts usually relapse after accidents where they get painkillers for the injuries.

    Luckily he was so loaded on Oxycontin they didn't even have to give him any at the hospital….

    I believe this happened about 8 months ago because when he was Celebrity Rehab The Reunion this accident was mentioned. Stay Strong Leif.

    I wish him well. I always thought he was super intelligent but could never get past the drugs. Now he's past the drugs and trying to recover from an accident. Get well Leif! I'll take care of you! :)

    I USED to be a Leif Garrett fan for years until I met him in person. I just have to say Carma is really a B**ch sometimes & it could not have happened to a better person who really deserves to be in a lot of pain. This guy has treated his like Sh*t & doesn't give a d*mn about them except for what money he can get from them. I totally agree with Ultraworld & Pam's comments. I would love to know how he got a bike in the first place since he never seems to work or have any money? Raise your hand if you think he will be back on drugs after he recovers from his injuries! RAISES MY HAND!

    Re: Shetahn – Your question, where did he get the money to buy a motorcycle in the first place???? I don't think that's any of your damn business actually and what a nasty person you are.
