“Kings of Leon” Source Says Lead Singer Needs Rehab

It came as a bit of a shock yesterday when Kings of Leon canceled its entire U.S. tour.  Suddenly, the band went from missing two Texas shows to an entire country.

Well now, an insider is telling Us Weekly that the cancellation wasn’t from lead singer Caleb Followill’s “vocal issues and exhaustion,” but from a major alcohol problem.  The source claims:

“They are trying to get Caleb to go to rehab. It is mostly for alcohol…[That’s why] they ended up canceling the whole tour… he drinks like a fish.”

A second source confirms to the site:

“It’s true. Caleb’s drinking is out of control and they are trying to get him into rehab. It’s a dark demon he has been fighting for awhile.”

All of that insider information seems to go along with Followill’s behavior after cutting short the band’s Friday Dallas concert, when he yelled to the crowd,

“I’m gonna go backstage and I’m gonna vomit, I’m gonna drink a beer.”

While a representative for the band released the official statement that “The reason for the cancellation of the tour is Caleb is under doctor’s orders for vocal rest. They feel terrible about canceling. They look forward to getting back on the road at the end of September,” Caleb’s bandmate and brother Jared Tweeted Saturday something that could be thought of as a major hint at Caleb’s struggles:

“There are internal sicknesses & problems that have needed to be addressed…I know you guys aren’t stupid. I can’t lie. There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade.”

On Monday, after news of the canceled tour went wide, Jared added: “Utterly depressed. It’s completely out of my hands. Family has to come 1st.”

Only time will tell what problems Caleb Followill has.  Hopefully, whether it’s alcohol or vocal issues, he’ll be better soon.
