It’s inevitable: Upon hearing that Backstreet Boy AJ McLean is reportedly seeking help again to battle his addicitions the lyrics “Backstreet’s back..” in rehab just springs to mind. Seems the boybander has been having a bit too much fun in advance of the BSB’s upcoming tour with New Kids on the Block.
TMZ cites a source who says AJ has been “out of control” recently, and his substance abuse problems were threatening to mess with the tour plans. Other sources say he acted like he was under the influence on a Backstreet Boys cruise in December.
AJ was in rehab in 2001 and 2002 for his addictions to alcohol and cocaine.
On Jan. 9 he Tweeted, “I love u all and wish me luck! I start my sober journey tomm!” following it up with “See u on the other side” on Jan. 10.
Let’s hope he gets (and stays) sober in time for the tour — and for his wedding on May 14.
