The last time we heard from Trace Adkins, he was battling it out on the season finale of Celebrity Apprentice with Penn Jillette, where he ended up winning. Since his big win, it appears that Trace has fallen off the wagon, as he is now in rehab for alcohol abuse!
He was the big winner last season on Celebrity Apprentice, but superstar Country singer Trace Adkins is spending his time in rehab at the moment for alcohol abuse, according to a new report by TMZ. Trace was reportedly on a Country cruise headed to Jamaica when he got into a physical altercation with a Trace impersonator after one too many drinks. Ironically, Trace had met the impersonator back in 2007, so we’re not quite sure what set Adkins off.
“Trace has entered a treatment facility after a setback in his battle with alcoholism. As he faces these issues head-on, we ask that his family’s privacy will be respected,” Adkins’ rep told Country Weekly. Prior to falling off the bandwagon, Trace had been sober for 12 years, and he has always been open about his battle with alcoholism. It’s definitely sad to see him have a setback after working so hard to stay sober, but everyone makes mistakes now and again. Rumor has it that Trace took it upon himself to ditch the trip and check into rehab as soon as the ship docked in Jamaica.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Trace and his family as they deal with this issue.
