Kings Of Leon Band Wants Lead Singer Caleb Followill To Enter Rehab!

Hollywoodlife.com knew that the Caleb’s drinking problems were the main reason Kings of Leon canceled their tour, and now sources say his bandmates want him to enter rehab!

Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill may seem like he has it all with his world famous vocals and Victoria Secret Model wife, but there are some serious issues that accompany the life of a rock star. HollywoodLife.com reported first that Caleb’s issues with alcohol abuse and anxiety were the reason their tour was cancelled, and now another source confirms that his bandmates are pushing him to enter rehab.

“They are trying to get Caleb to go to rehab. It is mostly for alcohol,” admitted an inside source to Us Weekly. “[That's why] they ended up canceling the whole tour… he drinks like a fish.”

That’s not hard to imagine after Caleb’s recent debacle in Dallas, when he reportedly had one too many and had to stop performing to vomit. Obviously his drinking problem was starting to impede his abilities as a performer and his fans were suffering. As we previously reported, sources say Caleb gets anxious about performing in front of crowds and uses alcohol as a crutch.

“There’s a running joke in the band that Caleb can’t go on stage without having a cocktail first.” said an insider close to the band.

The only people more upset about the tour’s cancellation than fans of Kings of Leon is the band themselves. Caleb’s brother Jared Followill has taken to Twitter to express how hard it is for him to let down his fans but that family has to come first. He also hints that there is much more than vocal issues and exhaustion plauging their frontman.

”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.” tweeted Jared.

We hope that Caleb gets the help he needs in order to be well enough to continue his work with Kings of Leon. So much great talent in the music industry has been lost prematurely to substance abuse, but it seems like Caleb has the support of his family to seek treatment. Tell us what you think! Do you think Caleb should enter rehab?
