Kings of Leon's model woes
After the bust-ups, cancelled gigs and onstage spats, Kings of Leon have finally released a statement admitting to lead singer Caleb Followhill's health problems. A friend has said that Caleb has an addiction to alcohol, and is heading to rehab.
According to Vogue, the band released a statement saying, 'We are so sorry to say Kings of Leon are cancelling their entire US tour due to Caleb Followill suffering from vocal issues and exhaustion.' A friend said, 'They are trying to get Caleb to go to rehab. It is mostly for alcohol. [That's why] they ended up cancelling the whole tour. He drinks like a fish.'
Jared Followhill, the band's youngest member tweeted, 'Dallas, I cannot begin to tell you how sorry I am. There are internal sicknesses and problems that have needed to be addressed. No words. I love our fans so much. I know you guys aren't stupid. I can't lie. There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade. Utterly depressed. It's completely out of my hands. Family has to come first. If bass solos and backing vocals were more popular, I'd be there.'
Jared married supermodel Lily Aldridge, a 'Victoria's Secrets Angel' in a ceremony last year.
