Report: Bon Jovi Guitarist Richie Sambora Enters Rehab

Posted on Thu Apr 28, 2011 10:30 PM PDT

bonjovi041610_0.jpgRichie Sambora is checking himself into rehab for exhaustion and to regain his sobriety, after ending his tour with Bon Jovi.

The 52-year-old guitar player and his group are scheduled to play tour dates this month in the U.S., before heading to tour in Europe through June.

Sambora's bandmates said in a statement: "Our support for Richie is absolute. He is, and will remain, a member of Bon Jovi. Although he will be absent from upcoming shows for the time being, we very much look forward to his healthy return. In the meantime, we will keep our commitment to our fans and continue our tour."

Sambora entered treatment for alcoholism at ULCA Medical Center in 2007, two months after his nine-year marriage to Heather Locklear ended, and the passing of his father due to lung cancer.

Coincidentally, Richie's decision to seek treatment comes on the heels of his probation ending last week.



Richie and Locklear have a daughter Ava, 13, with whom they split custody.
