According to Eonline, El DeBarge is now in rehab. It’s no secret that the 80’s popster had trouble with drugs in the past, which led to serving two years in prison. The artist announced yesterday that he checked into rehab.
“I hate to disappoint my fans but it is necessary for me to take the time to work on me so that I may continue to share my music and my story with everyone,” the 49-year-old DeBarge said. “I thank everyone in advance for their prayers and well wishes and hope that you will respect my privacy during this time.”
Before entering a drug-treatment facility for his unspecified addiction, the hitmaker had been making the promotional rounds for his comeback album, Second Chance. He also scored two Grammy nominations—for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song.
We would like to send out our prayers to El DeBarge. He frequents Baltimore and always gets a warm welcome from his fans. We wish nothing but the best for El DeBarge. Get better El.
