Trace Adkins

In Cruise Ship Brawl With Impersonator

1/15/2014 2:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0115-trace-facebookCountry singer Trace Adkins fought himself on a cruise ship Monday -- or at least he may have thought he was fighting himself -- because it seems Trace was really wasted and he just checked into rehab.

Sources tell TMZ ... Trace was headlining a country cruise headed to Jamaica.  He was in the bar when something happened between him and a Trace impersonator who was doing Karaoke. Trace -- who had been sober for 12 years -- had fallen off the wagon and got into a physical fight with the impersonator.

We're told once the boat docked in Jamaica ... Trace jumped ship.  We're told he's now in rehab. 

Trace and the impersonator in question previously met in 2007 (see video below).  The impersonator's wearing sunglasses.

Very sad, but spilled milk. He did the right thing by going to rehab. Best of luck, Trace.

Maybe he was drinking because he just found out the woman he's always loved, had his kid when he was in rehab 12 years ago and never told him he was her father...and let him believe the man she married 12 years ago (again, when he was in rehab) was the real dad. ...
I mean, that's how it went down on the TV show Nashville, so clearly that's exactly what happened here.
We believe everything that's online and on the TV and in our bibles.

This is not at all surprising; many people check themselves into rehab after beating themselves up :)

I'm currently on the Cruise. The "Look a Like" has been stalking Trace for years and showed up on last years cruise where he was asked to stop and then shows up again this year. Yes Trace fell off the wagon after 12 years alcohol addiction is an evil disease and unless you have lived through it STFU!!! I pray for Trace and his family. He has been a good husband and a good father and no child deserves to have a parent suffer from this disease. God speed Trace! We still Love you.

Too bad he threw away 12 years. Hope rehab does him good. Once an addict always an addict.

The past year I've been scrolling through tm z's articles out of boredom, thinking maybe just maybe they'll have something interesting to write. Today I realized it's time. This website and everyone who works for tmz gets paid practically to just write nonsense. It's embarassing. So long tmz
