Two years after completing rehab for alcohol and cocaine, Oscar De La Hoya has checked himself back into rehab. Oscar revealed the news in his own statement to the media to explain why he wouldn’t be ringside¬†during the Mayweather vs. Canelo fight this weekend – which is being put on by his own¬†Golden Boy Promotions company. He said,
“I will not be at the fight this Saturday to cheer Canelo to victory since I have voluntarily admitted myself into a treatment facility.¬†”I explained this to Canelo and he understood that my health and longterm recovery from my disease must come first.Thank you for your understanding. I ask for your support and privacy during this difficult time for me and my family.”
Now if only more stars were so open and honest about having a problem and seeking help, you’d make our job so much easier! Take notes Lamar, this is how it should be done.
