We were hoping that Bobby Brown was serious about getting sober for the sake of his friends, family and New Edition bandmates, but it sounds like he's already falling back into old habits.
The 43-year-old entered rehab to treat his alcoholism earlier this month following his "no contest" plea to driving under the influence. While he was supposed to complete a 90-day program, the singer has left the facility after just three weeks. A source broke the unfortunate news by saying:
"Bobby is no longer in rehab, he decided he’s had enough treatment for his problems. When he first checked in, he promised … that this time he was going to stay in rehab for the full treatment. That’s normally a 90-day program. However, after fulfilling his duties for his DUI plea deal, Bobby has decided that he doesn’t need treatment anymore."
Ugh! Such a shame. So he was basically just “decided that he needed help" for the court's sake, not "his children's", as he had said prior to admitting himself.
Well now his family and friends are just as skeptical as us, as the source continued to explain:
“Bobby’s family and friends are terrified, despite his pleas that he’s sober, that he will fall off the wagon once again. They’re not sure if he was ever serious about conquering his demons and have voiced their concerns. It’s difficult to believe someone going into rehab for alcohol addiction for such a short time is genuine about giving up drinking.”
It sure is.
Think of your kids and new wife, Bobby! Your daughter doesn't believe you can "rise above" your dependency, which is exactly why you should be trying your hardest to prove her wrong!
