George Michael recently got involved in a nasty car accident, when he was driving under the influence of narcotics and crashed into a photo-shop. The singer was strongly reprimanded at the court hearing and his Driving license was suspended. As an immediate aftermath to the crash, George checked into a rehab center to cure his addiction.
On August 30 George sent an open letter to his fans, where he said that he understands the seriousness of his condition and truly apologizes for what he has done. He further said that he has checked into the 14-day drug detox program right after the crash and plans to get sober soon. The British Hitmaker is attending the 14-day detox program and this will be followed by an outpatient drug-counseling.
The singer further said that his recent run-ins with the law was due to his personal problems getting the better of him and he will no longer let his pride prevent him from seeking help. Last week the singer pleaded guilty for driving under influence and for possessing cannabis. George Michael is due back in court on Sept 24 when he will be sentenced for the offense.
Sources suggest that the singer might be facing some serious jail time thanks to his substance abuse problem. We just hope George gets sober and concentrates on his work.
