breaking news

0401_cory_monteith_getty_article"Glee" star Cory Monteith has checked himself into rehab for substance addiction, a rep for the 30-year-old actor announced this morning.

Monteith's rep told PEOPLE mag, "[Monteith] has voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction. He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery."

Monteith, who stars as Finn Hudson on the Fox show, was in rehab once before when he was 19. He talked about it back in 2011, saying, "I don't want kids to think it's okay to drop out of school and get high, and they'll be famous actors, too."

He makes a public statement saying he's in treatment for substance abuse. At the same time he ask to respect his privacy. If he wants us to respect his privacy don't make a public statement. Who gives a f@*k anyway.

The guy has battled demons in the past and still realized he needed help. Take note, Lilo: This is what personal responsibility looks like. I applaud his ability to make this tough decision, and I hope the cast and crew is supportive as well.

No one outside of the people he hangs with knew he was a present addict, so why broadcast he has a problem? Either he really wants to help himself or he got into so trouble that hasn't surfaced yet. Either way, food luck.

This makes me want to throw up. There are alot of talented people in Hollywood that would love to "make it" in the show biz, so all you asses that "need to go to rehab", get over yourself and act right and be grateful, you jerks!
