Trace Adkins Heads To Rehab For Alcohol Abuse
Trace Adkins fell off the sobriety wagon during his stint on the Country Cruising Line and is now heading to alcohol rehab.
Trace Adkins Checks Into Rehab
Adkins' rehab stint and struggle with alcoholism were confirmed by his rep in a statement to Country Weekly. “Trace has entered a treatment facility after a setback in his battle with alcoholism," the statement read. "As he faces these issues head-on, we ask that his family’s privacy will be respected.”
Once the cruise ship made a stop in Jamaica on Monday, Adkins took his leave of the ship, returned to the states and checked himself into rehab. It’s been rumored that in his intoxication, Adkins got into a physical altercation with an impersonator of his, who was also aboard the ship.
Adkins Fights Impersonator?
Insiders claim that Adkins was at a bar on the cruise ship where the impersonator was singing karaoke, according to TMZ. It’s unknown what set off the country singer, but he allegedly got into physical fight with the impersonator, who TMZ claims Adkins has known since 2007.
Due to his rehab stint, Adkins, who'd been sober for 12 years, has had to cancel the remaining performances he was scheduled for on the Country Cruising Line.
