Shifty Shellshock

In a Coma

4/2/2012 6:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0402-seth-binzer-tmz-ex
Former "Celebrity Rehab" star Shifty Shellshock is currently in a coma in an L.A. hospital -- TMZ has learned.

According to sources, the former Crazy Town singer has been in the ICU since last Thursday and is completely unresponsive. It's unclear what put him there -- but people close to him believe it was drug-related.

Shifty is scheduled to appear in court this week for a pre-trial hearing -- after his February coke arrest. We're told he was extremely anxious about the possibility of going to jail.

"Shify" came across as a hard-core user on Celebrity Rehab....I have to wonder if Dr. Drew has any success stories....

Over a month ago I saw him on Vine and Santa Monica looking for a cab. He looked horrible.

Oh wow!! It's not time for him to leave yet, he is lost and needs to be found and has too much to offer this world. One day he will be clean and sober, it's just not today or this way. <3

Sadly, I am NOT SURPRISED. Shifty has been trying to kill himself for awhile now. He may get his wish.

I feel sorry for his little son. Having a father who is a degenerate drug addict is one thing. Having a father die of drugs is something else entirely.

I can't say that I'm surprised by this one, either. In the end, people have to take personal responsibility for their health--on all levels. He gambled with his physical health for too long and took too many things for granted and now this type of thing happened. And it was all preventable, too, such a waste.

another sucess story for Dr Drew........ How many people on his show have died or relapsed???? Yet Dr Drew goes on tv talking about people he has never treated saying they will not do well but most of his clients are the ones who die or relapse. he is a joke.

This is sad to hear but I don't know why people keep blaming Dr. Drew for these wannabe celebs who appeared on his show and went back to doing drugs and/or alcohol.

If they don't follow the advice he gives them how is he to blame? IMO the majority of them just wanted to be on Dr. Drew's show for the money and publicity and had no intention of following his advice. These are grown people folks. You can't make them stop drugging if they don't want to.
