Robin Williams, longtime Bay Area resident, checked himself into rehab today. However, it may not be for the reason you think.
Williams had substance abuse issues early on in his career, most notably with cocaine, but quit cold turkey in 1982 when his first wife was pregnant with their son Zachary over 30 years ago, and his dear friend John Belushi passed from drug-related causes. In 2006, he sought rehab again for alcohol addiction.
This time around though, Williams’ issues may be from exhaustion. The actor and comedian has worked back to back projects and wants to maintain his sobriety. He plans to stay for “several weeks,” according to People Magazine.
