Chevy Chase Is Back In Rehab

Celebrities At The 12th Annual Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational Gala

Chevy Chase has checked into rehab again.

TMZ confirms that the comedian is an in-patient at Hazelden Addiction Treatment Center in Minnesota. Sound familiar? Well, it’s the same place Robin Williams was treated in 2014. The rep tells TMZ that Chevy is getting help for an alcohol-related problem which she calls a “tune-up.”  She tells us Chevy “wants to be the best that he can be.”

The 72-year-old is set to appear in 2 upcoming movies: “Dog Years” and “The Christmas Apprentice” which has already wrapped. So he probably was just feeling shaky and wanted to get his sobriety back on track. If you remember, dude did Betty Ford pretty hard in the 80’s, so honestly, this feels dare I say…responsible?

Good on you, Chevy.

Demi Lovato Thought She Was Going To Die Young

Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 12.05.26 AM

Man, sometimes what Demi Lovato says is on point (and sometimes not. But this is gold):

Demi has been super outspoken in her past struggles with addiction, bipolar disorder, and an eating disorder. In a new interview, however, the 23-year-old gets pretty graphic, and very real.

The actress/musician spoke to American Way, and talked about how she could trace her body image struggles back to age 3. She watched both her mother and her grandmother suffer from bulimia, and she followed suit (so sad) as a pageant girl. While shooting the Disney Channel Original Movie Camp Rock at age 15, she was scared of being the next Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan, who were having public breakdowns at the time:

“Making Camp Rock, I was definitely like, ‘Oh crap. In three years, that’s going to be me,’” she said.

As her acting career took off and her star power grew, she started cutting herself, drinking heavily, and self-medicating with cocaine and OxyContin.

“I lived fast and I was going to die young,” she said. “I didn’t think I would make it to 21.”

Lovato is happier and healthier now — she celebrated her fourth year of sobriety this past March, and she credits her dedicated fans for keeping her accountable.

“When I have meet-and-greets, I can’t tell you the amount of times that girls will show me their arms covered in scars or cuts,” she said. “They’ll tell me, ’You helped me get through this. Because of you, I stopped self-harming,’ or ’I got sober.’ Hearing those things gave my life new meaning.”

Sounds rough but know what? It’s a different time than it was four years ago, in my opinion. I feel like we’re much more sensitive to these issues and much more willing to give and receive support. It’s a good time to live, right, Demi?

SHOCKER: Chris Brown Is Getting Sued For Violent Behavior

Screen Shot 2016-06-24 at 9.18.12 AM

Surprise surprise, Chris Brown‘s being a Dbag, AGAIN.

The controversial singer has more legal woes/violence allegations, and ironically enough, it’s with the dude that he hired to rehabilitate his image after the Rihanna beating.

Mike G claims he was hired in 2012 not only to change Brown’s image, but to get him out of debt and off drugs, and that it worked because Chris had  a resurgence in popularity (ugh). THEN, cut to last month: Mike G claims without provocation, Brown took him in a room, brutally attacked him with repeated punches to the face and neck, which landed him in the ER. TMZ reports:

The lawsuit claims Brown, rather than being remorseful, began mocking Mike G on social media and bragging to friends about the beating. Mike G says Brown had the audacity to tell people working on his tour, if they got out of line he’d beat them just like he beat Mike G.

Mike G says Brown’s rage was drug-fueled and the suit mention concern for retaliation from Brown’s “gang member friends.”

Mike G’s attorney, Patty Glaser, tells TMZ, “We did everything we could to resolve this in a non-public way to avoid damage to Chris Brown. Regrettably, as outlined in our complaint, Chris Brown has proven to be his own worst enemy.”

To add a little less class to the whole situation (if that’s possible), Chris just responded to the lawsuit in an Instagram video, claiming he fired Mike G for stealing money from him. Mike G’s lawyer shot back saying that they will be adding a defamation claim to the lawsuit. DANG.

Selena Gomez Has…Leukemia?

Screen Shot 2016-04-14 at 1.52.09 PM

Just when you thought you forgot Selena Gomez was in rehab…new info surfaces. Or maybe it’s just a Freudian slip?

Selly covered GQ‘s May issue, and in her interview she explains why she chose to abruptly enter rehab back in 2014. It’s no secret that she’s been battling the auto-immune disease lupus, but her odd slip of the tongue makes it seem like she has something…a little more serious than that.

When asked about her diagnosis, the 23-year-old said:

“First off, this is something that everyone always wants to fixate on. I got diagnosed with lupus. My mom had a very public miscarriage. So I had to cancel my tour. I needed time to just be okay. And I was going through leukemia and I went to two different locations for those treatments. It’s really frustrating, because I am 100 percent allowed to have that, but I think people just want to have some sort of—”

The writer of the GQ piece, Zach Baron, did note that Selena probably meant chemotherapy instead of leukemia. Weird slip, though- especially because she was very specifically treated with chemotherapy during her two-week stay in rehab, for LUPUS. She continued:

“I understand what you’re asking, but I’m just saying, I don’t think it really matters. My past seems to be way more fascinating for people than my future, which bums me out.”

Gomez furthered her point, by sharing a story of when she first shared her diagnosis with a patient at a children’s hospital:

“And there was this kid that wouldn’t look me in the eye at all… I wanted to get his attention, even though maybe it was too much. So I just said, ‘Ask me anything you want.’ And he was the first person that I told, besides my best friend and family, because he asked me, ‘Have you ever dealt with anything like this?’ And I said, ‘I have lupus. I was in the ICU for two and a half weeks. I was in this exact same room.’ And it was the first time that he looked at me… I don’t ever really like to sit and dwell on what that experience was. Was it fun? No. Is it fun to have it? No.”

Does anyone else find her weird slip of the tongue interesting? Or do you just think she’s confused? WEIGH IN BELOW!
