Apparently, Richie Sambora is headed to rehab, as RadarOnline reports. This is at least his second recent stint, as the rocker had check into Cirque Lodge in Utah previously in 2007 to deal with his drinking and addiction to painkillers. Unfortunately, he’s fallen off the wagon once again, but the good news is that he’s doing something about it!
Richie’s just come out of a very busy and draining tour with Bon Jovi and apparently, his alcoholism kicked in during his time spent on the road. A source reveals, “Richie recently has been drinking too much, and wants to get his life together” while another “friend” says, “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.” While the band is supposedly being very supportive of his decision, we still don’t know how they’re going to deal with Sambora’s absence for the rest of the tour. They still have dates in the U.S and Europe left until the June! We’re rooting for you, Richie!
