Kings of Leon Finally Acting Like Rock Stars

According to US Weekly's (hopefully truthful!) sources, the rest of Kings of Leon think front man Caleb Followill will need rehab following the band's abrupt cancellation of their U.S. tour. Source #1: "They are trying to get Caleb to go to rehab. It is mostly for alcohol. [That's why] they ended up canceling the whole tour ... he drinks like a fish." Source #2: "It's true. Caleb's drinking is out of control and they are trying to get him into rehab. It's a dark demon he has been fighting for awhile." The official statement said the cancellation came about because Caleb was suffering from "exhaustion," which Vulture thought meant drugs. Still! After a long history of activities not befitting their rock-star swag, the boys from Tennessee are finally acting like some throwback seventies rock-n'-rollers. Hoisting a cold one in your honor, Caleb! [US Weekly via RS]
