He was also a cast member on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew in 2008, where he opened up about his past history of drug abuse.
“I was sober before I went in there and I haven’t really done drugs in years,” he told OK!. “It was more for me to go on and just help others out and deal with some other issues in my life that I have to deal with.”
