AJ McLean back in rehab

Rehab isn’t just for Lindsay Lohan and formerly homeless radio talent this week. AJ McLean of the Backstreet Boys has checked himself back into rehab. Here’s a statement from AJ:

“For personal reasons, I’ve checked myself into a rehab clinic. With 2011 being a busy year for Backstreet, I want to be healthy and at my best. Thank you for all of your support and respecting my family and friends’ privacy during this time.”

 

TMZ is saying that AJ relapsed a while ago and his addiction was starting to interfere with his work on the NKOTBSB Tour. They went on to say that AJ spent most of last month’s Backstreet Boys Cruise drinking and on the influence of drugs.
