Josh Duggar

Checks Into Rehab

8/26/2015 9:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0826-josh-duggar-instagram-01Josh Duggar checked into a rehab facility yesterday in the wake of his confession he was using the Ashley Madison website to cheat on his wife.

The Duggar family says it's a "long-term treatment center" ... but does not say what kind of treatment he's getting. While Josh's parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, have rarely admonished him ... they're directly ripping him now, saying ... "His wrong choices have deeply hurt his precious wife and children and have negatively affected so many others. He has also brought great insult to the values and faith we hold dear."

They added Josh's wife, Anna, is also getting counseling for her "heart and future" -- and they're praying Josh comes to "complete repentance and sincere change."

Kim Richards

Done With Rehab!

... Takes Off Overnight

EXCLUSIVE

0713-kim-richards-tmz-01Kim Richards made it a full month in rehab, and then bolted out of the joint in the middle of the night ... TMZ has learned, and the timing could be directly tied to her family.

Sources say Kim packed her bags, and left the Malibu facility over the weekend -- fleeing under the cover of darkness. Although she lasted more than 30 days ... we're told she'd had enough because she wasn't getting along with the staff, including the doctors.

The timing is interesting, since her whole family was across the pond for Nicky Hilton's wedding in London. As we first reported ... her sis Kyle is taking a tough love approach.

Things had been going well for Kim in treatment. She was all smiles when immediate family members came to visit her on July 4th weekend.

Kim Richards

Forced to Ditch Her House

… Before Rehab Return

EXCLUSIVE

Returning to rehab was Kim Richards' best option because she's fallen on hard times, financially ... and had to pack up and leave her house. 

After Kim's disaster of a Mexican vacay ... we're told she returned to the house she rents in the Valley -- featured on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" -- merely to box her belongings and put them in storage. Our sources say she could no longer foot the bill, especially with her 'RHOBH' gig so up in the air. 

Kim checked back into rehab earlier this week, and will remain there for the next 30-60 days. 

When she gets out ... there’s talk she’ll rent something smaller, like a condo, on LA’s west side. 

On the bright side of things ... Kim’s rental house was a magnet for bad luck. At least 3 people were attacked by her dog Kingsley there, and of course, there's the whole relapse thing

Change could be good.

Kim Richards

Kyle and Mauricio Won't Save You Anymore

6/2/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0601_kim_richars_kyle_richards_Mauricio-Umansky_TMZKim Richards has just lost 2 of the most important people in her life, because we've learned her sister Kyle and husband Mauricio Umansky have washed their hands of her ... ironically, to save her.

Sources connected with the family tell TMZ, Kim stayed in Mexico after her daughter's wedding and was perpetually wasted. We're told in the last few days, Kyle and Mauricio had a security guard fly down to Cabo and literally force Kim onto an airplane where she returned home to L.A.

Our sources say Kim has promised to re-enter rehab, but it's not flying with Kyle and Mauricio. We're told they feel they have done what they can do to save Kim, and the only thing left is tough love.

So, Kim is no longer their problem. If she ends up on the streets, then that's what has to happen. We're told things are so bad, Kyle and Mauricio feel Kim is actually in danger of dying. But they believe the only hope is for her to realize they will not be her safety net to constantly bail her out.

Very sad.

Kyle Richards

I Haven't Spoken to Kim Since

Mexican Wedding Disaster

5/28/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kyle Richards made it clear by what she said and what she didn't say ... her sister Kim is in crisis.

We got Kyle out in Bev Hills Wednesday, and she opened up and said she hasn't spoken with Kim since Kim's daughter tied the knot in Mexico over the weekend.

As we reported, Kim was off the rails, pissing off everyone and apparently under the influence of something. Kyle says everything's okay now, but the way she says it makes it painfully obvious ... she's protecting her sister who is way off the wagon again.

As far as we know, Kim is still MIA. She hasn't returned to rehab and the last she was seen was in Cabo.

Under the Influence at Daughter's Wedding

Sober Coach Quits

5/26/2015 10:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-kim-richards-wedding-INSTAGRAM-02Kim Richards melted down at her daughter's wedding over the weekend to the point her sober coach quit, her daughter isn't speaking with her anymore and those present say she was either on drugs or alcohol.

Multiple sources tell TMZ ... Kim was clearly under the influence of something, although no one seems to know what. Our sources say whatever Kim took or drank, she did so in private, but when she interacted with people at the wedding she was "a mess."

We're told Kim was saying horribly nasty things to her daughter, Brooke, right after the wedding. We're told Kim was cursing out the groom's family and was generally belligerent. The bride has vowed she won't speak with her mom again.

As for the sober coach ... we're told she couldn't control Kim and left Mexico immediately after the wedding. 

Our sources say Kim is still in Cabo and she's gone radio silent. The rehab facility gave her a pass to attend the wedding but gave her a deadline to return Monday, which she has not done.

Kim Richards was front and center for her daughter's wedding Saturday in Cabo, but it's just a night out before returning to rehab.

Kim's daughter Brooke married Thayer Wiederhorn, the heir to the Fatburger fortune ... yeah, we were surprised too that he was skinny.

The pictures tell a fairly compelling story ... the family seems tight.  Kyle Richards -- who has had issues with Kim in the past -- was right there, along with her daughters and hubby Maurcio Umansky.  You'll recall, Kyle's daughter Alexia was badly bitten by Kim's pit bull.

Paris was there, along with most of the other Hiltons.

The entertainment was impressive ... Conrad Sewell performed his huge song, "Firestone.'

Kim, who had a sober coach present, did not drink and she's returning to rehab, where she's been since shortly after her drunken night at the Beverly Hills Hotel which led to her arrest and criminal charges.

Scott Stapp

Amazing Recovery

After Drug/Alcohol-Fueled Meltdown

5/23/2015 7:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Stapp looks incredible after a stint in rehab following one of the most bizarre meltdowns in recent memory.

The Creed frontman and wife Jaclyn breezed into LAX Friday, and we're blown away by how good Scott looks and sounds.

You may recall his paranoid rants last November, where Scott put himself on video saying he was on the run because the CIA was trying to kill him. Jaclyn filed legal docs trying to get him committed.

Fast forward to Friday ... he's lucid and seemingly clean. Scott says he's looking forward to seeing their friend, Jennifer Gimenez, who occasionally appears on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." She's been a big part of Scott's recovery. 

We're told they're in town to appear on "Couples Therapy."
