Richie Makes Light Of Rehab-loving Stars
Soul legend Lionel Richie has poked fun at celebrities who check into rehab, even though his own daughter, Nicole, once sought counselling at one California facility.
The Hello singer maintains Nicole needed help but too many stars simply seek out rehab stays because it has become a new Hollywood trend.
He says, "I think it's a cliche to say, 'I'm going into rehab. I bumped my foot today - rehab; I hit my head on something - rehab.'"
The Simple Life star Nicole, entered a drug-diversion programme after pleading guilty to a felony heroin-possession charge in 2003 - when she was 21.
