Justin Hawkins - flame-tattooed frontman of The Darkness - has checked himself into rehab according to reports in the tabloid press.
The singer checked into The Priory (of course) on Saturday. According to The Mirror, he's been suffering from stress following the failure of second album One Way Ticket To Hell... And Back to match the success of the band's mega-selling debut, Permission To Land.
Hawkins has previously battled bulimia, and there are fears that his health is again deteriorating after the band cancelled a festival appearance in Denmark last week.
The 'paper quotes a source:
"Justin's been feeling really low of late and he wanted to go somewhere he could clear his head. He's been looking terrible - his skin's taken on a weird yellow pallor. The Priory really is the best place for him."
DiS wishes him all the best. We like The Darkness. They have giant boobs at their shows, and boobs, particularly giant ones, are good.
