This all must have been a long time coming…

Johnny Manziel is currently making headlines for refusing to enter rehab, but it sounds like his downfall has been in the works for a while.

That's because it was just revealed on Wednesday that Nike dropped the 23-year-old quarterback sometime after the 2015 NFL season, despite only just partnering with him in 2014!

Nike spokesman Brian Strong confirmed they fired the athlete way back on March 11 of last year, almost immediately after he finished rehab the first time.

As you may recall, Johnny's manager Drew Rosenhaus also dropped the former Cleveland Browns QB on Tuesday, and now we understand why — he wasn't making any money!

All of this combined with his pending domestic abuse case must be taking its toll on Johnny Football…

Get well soon, Johnny.

| Filed under: DrugsAaron CarterRehabAlcoholAddiction

Aaron's got some misconceptions to address.

Aaron Carter is setting the record straight.

Back in 2011, the singer made headlines when he checked into rehab. But now, he's clearing the air about certain drug abuse allegations, telling Entertainment Tonight:

The misconceptions are that I'm a meth head, or I'm a crackhead, or I'm a drug addict, or I'm this or that."

However, the blonde babe is adamant that he's "never" been addicted to those kinds of hard drugs.

But, he does acknowledge why he believes people think he's hooked on some serious stuff, saying:

"If you look at my parents, they have high cheekbones and [are] very skinny. I don't want to always feel like I have to prove myself, but people put me in these positions, and that's fine."

And while the Fool's Gold singer may not be a meth addict or a crackhead, he is confessing that he's not living a lifestyle of total sobriety, dishing:

Jon Cryer Talks The Possibility Of Becoming Friends With Charlie Sheen Again

Jon Cryer and Charlie Sheen

There's no doubt Charlie Sheen has burned a lot of bridges — and his former Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer is no exception.

However, it doesn't seem like all hope is lost.

The 50-year-old actor appeared on the Howard Stern Show Tuesday, where he opened up about his complicated friendship with the troubled star.

Of Charlie's infamous 2011 meltdown while their show was on air, Cryer said:

"He just went crazy out of nowhere."

He also added that it was "blindsiding" when Sheen bashed the entire cast and crew after his firing. Sheen notoriously went as far as to call his longtime friend a "troll" — which Cryer found troubling considering they had a great working relationship until that point.

The Pretty In Pink star explained that Sheen did later apologize (kinda) by stating:

"I'm sorry for all the bullsh*t, man."

To which Cryer noted:

"And I was like, ‘That's it? There was a lot of bullsh*t. There was an enormous amount of bullsh*t!'"

But after all is said and done, J.C. says he doesn't hold any "ill will" toward the 50-year-old, and he sympathizes with Sheen's HIV positive status.

With that said, Sheen would have to clean up his act in order for them to be pals anytime soon:

"He's got an addiction that's just kicking his ass. I'd love to have him back in my life again. I'd love for him to be sober. But unfortunately, he'd have to be."

Fair enough.

Mariah Carey certainly has some unresolved family drama.

On Wednesday, the We Belong Together singer's dying sister Alison begged the A-lister to put their differences aside to help save her life. Heavy stuff!

In a video on DailyMail, the former drug addict noted:

"Mariah I love you, and I desperately need your help, please don't abandon me like this."

As you may know, MiMi's flesh-and-blood has a long history of battling drug addiction and is unfortunately HIV positive. Of course, this plea comes not long after Alison and Mariah's brother Morgan SLAMMED the Grammy winner for abandoning their sis during her time of need.

Not to mention, this request is only months after Alison's near death experience and almost a year after a devastating home invasion left her both brain damaged and incredibly unwell. As the medical bills continue to come in, Alison reportedly still has a serious brain and spinal surgery to undergo — which means an extensive amount of time in physical rehabilitation.
