Not another one….

R&B legend El Debarge has checked himself into rehab!

According to Billboard, Debarge announced that he will be putting his career on hold to address years of substance abuse.

“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 singer has said in a statement. “I thank everyone in advance for their prayers and well wishes and hope that you will respect my privacy during this time.” (Source)

El Debarge was set to kick off a Spring U.S. tour with Kem and Ledisi on Thursday…but has now brought in Musiq Soulchild as his replacement.

We’re glad he is trying to find a solution to the problem before it gets even worse. Good luck, Debarge!!
