After a successful launch of the White Trash Beautiful (WTB) 2011 collection at the New York Fashion Week, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora is said to be heading for rehab.
The 52-year-old musician has had too much to drink and now feels exhausted. Richie had a very busy year, and he reached the point wherein he sees the need to straighten things out in his life. He is seeking help to regain his sobriety by checking himself into a rehabilitation facility.
This will not be the first time that Sambora will be in rehab. In 2007, he stayed at the Cirque Lodge in Utah for a period of time.
The rocker has so far led a very colorful life. Once married to actress Heather Locklear, he also dated Charlie Sheen’s ex, Denise Richards. In 2008, he was charged with misdemeanor for drunk driving, having a blood-alcohol level way beyond the state’s set limit. He was put under probation for three years and was required to attend classes for alcoholics, and paid fees to the court.
He has then involved himself in the fashion industry, working with designer/musician Nikki Lund for the last two years for their WTB line. With their background as rockers, their fashion line boasts of black leather, but also features silk chiffons and taffetas.
In their Fall 2011 collection at the New York Fashion Week, they featured cocktail dresses and black leather skinny dresses. Models who walked the runway for WTB also wore sunglasses from Polaroid Eyewear. Both Sambora and Lund will come out with their men’s collection for WTB, which will be modeled by – who else – Richie himself!
