Burt Reynolds checks into West Palm rehab

16

September

Tbd-burtreynolds091709 Burt Reynolds has checked himself into a West Palm Beach rehab facility for an addiction to painkillers, the AP reports. If only Captain Chaos were there to save him!

"After a recent back surgery, Mr. Reynolds felt like he was going through hell and after a while, realized he was a prisoner of prescription pain pills. He checked himself into rehab in order to regain control of his life," rep Erik Kritzer said in a statement. This is after the 73-year-old was found in a pool of blood by an employee at his home, the National Enquirer reported, and when do they ever lie? They also said he was in rehab for booze, too, though the statement doesn't mention that.

"Mr. Reynolds hopes his story will help others in a similar situation," Kritzer said. "He hopes they will not try to solve the problem by themselves, but realize that sometimes it is too tough to do on their own and they should seek help, as he did."
