Has Matt Cardle "Checked Into Rehab"?
X Factor champ won the talent show in 2010...
Matt Cardlehas reportedly checked into rehab after become addicted to prescription pills.
According to X Factorwinner checked into The Priory clinic yesterday evening to treat his addiction, which started when he parted ways with his record label and was working all hours to release his last two albums.
“His last two albums have done well in the charts, but the amount of work he has had to put in has been unreal — and it all started to get too much for him,” an unnamed source told the newspaper.
“In order to calm himself down he started taking Valium and then temazepam, but things got so bad that he couldn’t get up in the morning without taking pills,” continued the source.
“He began to realise he had a problem and decided to do something about it and get clean before his tour.”
Yesterday, however, Matt appeared to have found something more natural to help him keep calm: nature journalist Sir David Attenborough. “Never in my life have I ever needed the soothing sounds of Sir David Attenborough as I do right now,” Matt tweeted.
