A.J. McLean From Backstreet Boys Heading Back To Rehab

 

14 January 2011

A.J. McLean from the Backstreet Boys is heading back to rehab, just months before his band head on tour with New Kids On The Block.

The singer has battled his addiction to drugs and alcohol for years, and spent time in rehab in 2001 and 2002.

A source told TMZ that he has struggled with sobriety in recent months, and is now "out of control", which threatens to derail the group's plans for their join tour with New Kids On The Black.

A.J. recently wrote a few posts on his Twitter account which seem to refer to a return to rehab.

He wrote, "I love u all and wish me luck! I start my sober journey tomm (sic)!"

On 10 January (11), he added, "See u on the other side!"

We hope he gets better soon, and then maybe BSB and NKOTB will think about bringing their tour to Australia?
