Party of Five actor Jeremy London is determined to remain sober after his wife Melissa Cunningham was hospitalized for five days after suffering two strokes and a brain hemorrhage.
“Melissa did have a brain hemorrhage and two mini-strokes, but she’s fine now apparently,” Jeremy told Radar Online about the full extent of his wife's health problems, from the Pasadena Recovery Center where he’s been shooting Celebrity Rehab.
Despite the setback Jeremy says, “I’m doing awesome. I’m really glad I did this. I’m here to stay sober through this traumatic time.”
Melissa was admitted to the Pasadena Recovery Center in Pasadena, Calif., last Wednesday to undergo treatment for an addiction to prescription pills.
The website reports that Melissa was released from the hospital and she chose to return to treatment and her mom, Kayla — who has custody of the couple's son, Lyrik — confirms Melissa is “doing better” but that it’s “been bad."
“Lyrik’s been living with me for two years,” Kayla told Radar Online. “I love my daughter and I really hope she kicks this thing. Jeremy appears to be concerned. But my first priority is my grandson. Lyrik really needs a mom and a dad.”
Jeremy hit headlines in June when he told police he was kidnapped by three men in Palm Springs, Calif., and forced to do drugs.
