The people behind "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" have their sights set on former tennis star Jennifer Capriati and are willing to pay a pretty penny to get her to sign ... TMZ has learned.
Sources say "Rehab" producers are in talks with Capriati -- who accidentally overdosed on prescription meds last month -- and are willing to pay her top dollar to make her their ace in the hole for the upcoming season.
Although nothing is set in stone right now, we're told Capriati would be the big star the show desperately needs, since it's only landed B-teamers like Tila Tequila, Shauna Sand, and Jason Wahler.
