Redmond O’Neal Gets More Rehab As He Dodges Prison Time

Redmond O’Neal, son of Ryan O’Neal and the late, Farrah Facet, seems to have dodge prison time while accepting to more rehab in which the judge agreed that he needed additional treatment for his heroin addiction.

Redmond O’Neal
has struggled with a menacing heroin addiction for years which has landed him in heaps of trouble. Now he’s at the end of his rope. “Rock Bottom,” if you will?

Redmond O’Neal pleaded no contest to a felony of gun and heroin possession in a courtroom in Los Angeles and was sentenced to a year of inpatient treatment. Redmond O’Neal will also, be in probation for the next 5 years in which he will have the opportunity to show if he’s once and for all defeated his addiction.

Redmond O’Neal’s attorneys: Richard Pintal and Michael Brewer stated in union: “We are pleased and grateful that the judge gave Redmond further treatment rather than incarceration. His history of addiction warrants this approach.”

It is wonderful that indeed, Redmond O’Neal was granted further treatment instead of prison time. It’s just a shame that less fortunate addicts that can’t afford fancy lawyers are not granted with the same gracious treatment. An addict is an addict with or without a wealthy family and deserves the same opportunity for treatment and a true chance at recovery.

Either way, good luck to Redmond O’Neal on his journey to recovery!

Caleb Followill Band Mates Urge Singer To Go Into Rehab

Though Kings of Leon reps and and band mates of Caleb Followill have been saying that he’s been suffering from heat exhaustion and vocal issues it seems like the real truth is emerging now. Which is great, because although somethings should be kept private, it just isn’t private anymore when a whole auditorium in Dallas, Texas saw & heard Caleb Followill acting and talking really weird until he finally left the stage to never return.

Then dates for Dallas and Houston shows were revised just to be canceled about a day later. Obviously, there’s something going on. Caleb Followill excused himself while on stage to go backstage to vomit.

The latest is that everyone is trying to get Caleb Followill to go into rehab. A source close to the band stated: “They are trying to get Caleb to go to rehab. It is mostly for alcohol. [That's why] they ended up canceling the whole tour… he drinks like a fish.”

So there it is. A second source close to the band just as well stated: “It’s true. Caleb’s drinking is out of control and they are trying to get him into rehab. It’s a dark demon he has been fighting for awhile.”

So there you have it yet again… If indeed, this is true and it sure sounds like it, the right thing to do is for Caleb Followill to go into rehab or just get some rest. Sometimes you have to walk away. His band mates are not only band mates but his brothers that should be looking out for their “brother” and seeking what’s best for him at this time.

Rehab” is certainly not for everyone but a “get away” from everything stressful is a good remedy for everyone.

We sure hope that Caleb Followill feels better soon and that Kings of Leon can learn and grow from this experience without too much heartache.
