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.

Well just what kind of impersonator is that, anyway? He needs to learn how to get drunk and lose control if he is serious about it.

Not difficult to tell who's who at all. Trace is a MAN and the other person a male impersonator.

TMZ this info is all lies! The truth is all over the internet!
a member of group Love and Theft was an eye witness to Trace's disagreement with the Trace impersonator no blow no shoving no brutal beating with blood on the floor! this man called from the cruise ship to a radio station a couple days ago. his conversation with the radio station can be heard. Trace was sober for 12 years and he did relapse on the cruise ship. Trace was the headliner for the 7 day country cruise. Trace was with his wife Rhonda on the cruise. they got off the ship as soon as possible which was Tuesday morning. Trace's people have stated Trace is in rehab & asking for family privacy at this time.

Trace is an awesome guy, Like everyone we all have problems and glad he is getting help! There should be a law impersonators should have to get permission!! This guy looks NOTHING like Trace, and if he has pissed him off I sure wouldn't wanna be that little guy!

Trace Adkins has a serious attitude problem I have met him backstage at a concert after party and he thinks he is some big deal . personally I think he is a horrible singer. Although when your drinking he sounds OK
