El DeBarge has checked himself into a rehabilitation center. DeBarge’s label, Geffen Records, knew the “Second Chance” singer was having some recent trouble with staying clean and now the label has released a statement for the Crooner.
“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. I thank everyone in advance for their prayers and well wishes and hope that you will respect my privacy during this time,” stated DeBarge.
According to BlackVoices.com, DeBarge had a relapse in recently and rapper 50 Cent played a significant role in aiding the singer in getting some help.
Regardless, all of DeBarge’s personal appearances and shows have been postponed. DeBarge voluntarily checked himself into rehab.
The singer was slated to appear on the R&B star Kem’s ‘Intimacy Tour’ with Ledisi, which kicks off on Feb. 17 in Houston.
