Bon Jovi's Richie Sambora is heading back to rehab



rsz_tbd-richiesambora042911.jpgNow that Bon Jovi has proven it can still tour successfully, guitarist Richie Sambora is taking a break -- to go back to rehab. That month back in 2007 just wasn't enough, it seems.

"Richie recently has been drinking too much, and wants to get his life together," a source told RadarOnline, which reports the 52-year-old is headed to a facility to deal with exhaustion and alcoholism. "Richie has had a busy year," another source told the site. "I think this was a culmination of all the things that overloaded his life and finally he realized he needed to take care of himself."

There's no word on where the center is (perhaps back to Cirque Lodge in Utah) or how it will affect the band's upcoming U.S. dates over the next month, including a May 15 stop in Orlando. Something tells us that if this is true, he'll be back in time for the European leg in June, at the very least.
