Brandon Davis Goes Into Rehab

6/16/2006 12:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brandon Davis, the infamous oil heir, checked himself into a rehabilitation clinic yesterday evening, a source close to Brandon confirms to TMZ this afternoon.


Late last night, it was reported by In Touch Weekly that Davis had entered the Passages facility in Malibu, a $75,000-per-month center frequently sought out by the rich and famous. "Yes, I am checking into rehab today," said Davis, according to In Touch. "I am on my way right now."

Executive Editor Dan Wakeford issued the following statement to TMZ: "A reporter spoke to Brandon Davis at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills, where he stayed for a few days before checking himself into rehab."

In this morning's Page Six column, the New York Post said that the petrochemical prince was "balking" at going into treatment because he didn't believe he had a drug or alcohol problem. The Post also suggested that the Davis family wanted him to enter a treatment program for "public relations" reasons. Brandon's mother Barbara Davis has reportedly suffered considerable damage to her personal charity because of her son's antics.

Brandon has been vilified and ridiculed in the press for his infamous "Firecrotch" diatribe that first appeared exclusively on TMZ, in which he makes degrading and graphic remarks about his onetime friend Lohan during a stroll around the streets of Los Angeles. Since then, Davis has himself brazenly exploited the incident, wearing a T-shirt around the city that actually reads "Team Firecrotch."

A little time away from the nightlife comes at a particularly propitious moment, as Davis was recently turned away from a high-profile LA hotspot, according to the New York Observer's Spencer Morgan. Last weekend, he was forbidden from entering celeb-boite Hyde by a bouncer while trying to get in with his brother and Sonia Kinski, daughter of Nastassja, whereas Justin Timberlake and Michelle Trachtenberg sailed through.

According to the Observer, the club gave no specific reason for Davis' being turned away, except that the club "only has a capacity of 100 people."

OOOOhhhh....these kids have no idea what to do with themselves, and the liberal media is to blame. Is this news? Who cares about this "kid"? I know many people who have no money and had family members in rehabiliation facilities. It is humbling, brave, and heartbreaking to see addictions harm relationships and alter normal behavior. To have rehab. put in such a nonchalant perspective is a disgrace and a slap in the face for addicted people who really seek out help.
Everything these Hollywood embarrassments (some are underage) do for publicity is an utmost disgrace to our society and, mostly, our media.

I saw the diatribe this punk puked out. I can't believe there are fools on here defending him. "She only has 7 million dollars, shes poor" You idiots defending him think statements like that are "cool". Well I don't, We have really poor people in this country that don't have enough money to feed their children. Kids going to bed every night hungry. And you idolize a halfwitted punk that never worked a day in his live living off his mom and dad. What should happen is he should be cut off by his parents, cut out of the will, made to get a job, perferably at minimum wage. And kicked out of the house to fend for himself. He's a punk, and if you like him you're a punk too.

Rehab MAY help him, but who is going to work on the damage control that it will take to erase the vicious remarks about Lindsay Lohan.

LOOK HONESTLY THE ONLY REASON ANYONE KNOWS THE JUNKIE F*** IS BECAUSE HIS GRAND DADDY STRUCK IT RICH, HIS IS A WORTHLESS SCUMBAG WHO DOES NOTHING WITH HIS FATTY PIE ASS, HE IS A OBNOCIOUS OVER GROWN CHILD WHOM APPARENTLY NOONE WORTH ANYTYPE OF ANYTHING WANTS TO SERIOUSLY DATE. HE SEEMS LIKE HE NEEDS TO BE BOOTED OUT AND FORCED TO SEE WHAT THE REAL WORLD LOOKS LIKE, THEN I BET HE MAY HAVE A DIFFERENT SPIN ON A FEW THINGS HE COMES UP WITH IN HIS SLOPPY DRUNKEN STOOPERS.

I like a snarky comment and am pretty hard to offend but this jerk's rant lacked any hint of wit and was just plain ugly. This guy needs rehab and class and a job probably wouldn't hurt him either.

Of course he is mad at Lindsay Lohan. She has had to work for and fight to earn every dime she has ever earned and all the star power that she has now, while Brandie boy got handed his. Of course he is mad at her and jealous. Why isn't he ripping on male actors? Maybe he is afraid he'd get bitch slapped like the little bitch that he is. Probably thought Paris would protect him from Lohan if it came to that.
