Marc Jacobs Checks Into Rehab

Designer Marc Jacobs has checked himself into rehab!

Jacobs had been sober for 7 years but unfortunately relapsed recently. He then decided to go for a second round of in-patient rehab for drug and alcohol abuse.

A day after showcasing his Louis Vuitton collection in Paris he left the French capital and flew to a treatment facility in Arizona.

Jacobs’ business partner Robert Duffy confirmed the rumor that had started to circulate around New York. “Marc made the right decision,” Duffy said. “He’d been sober for seven years. When he relapsed, he wanted to deal with it right away."

“According to the experts, such a relapse isn’t uncommon,” Duffy continued. “Thankfully, Marc recognized the problem himself and chose to deal with it. Obviously, our prayers are with him.”
