(KP International) Justin Hawkins, the spandex-clad frontman for the Brit glam rock band The Darkness, has reportedly checked himself in to The Priory, a rehabilitation clinic in London.
"Justin's been feeling really low of late and he wanted to go somewhere he could clear his head," a source said to the UK's Mirror. "He's been looking terrible at the moment. His skin's taken on a weird yellow pallor. The Priory really is the best place for him."
Hawkins, who had previously admitted to battling an eating disorder, had to drop out of a festival in Denmark on doctor's orders. The band posted a statement from the doctor on their website: "It is of paramount importance that [Justin] rests and recuperates over the next two weeks. I have advised him to cancel all work-related activities."
