El DeBarge who recently made a comeback, is putting his career on hold and has checked into rehab. He says he is getting treatment for issues stemming from years of substance abuse.
“I hate to disappoint my fans but it is necessary for me to take the time to work on me so that I may continue to share my music and my story with everyone. I thank everyone in advance for their prayers and well wishes and hope that you will respect my privacy during this time,” El said in a statement.
All personal appearances for the singer have been postponed. He was scheduled to go on tour with Kem and Ledisi starting Thursday, Feb. 17th but has been replaced by Musiq Soulchild.
