Liv Tyler Supports Her Rocker Dad As He Checks Into Rehab

Given the unfortunate death of Brittany Murphy this past week, and the rumors swirling around a number of recent celebrity fatalities and excessive prescription medications, actress Liv Tyler is very supportive of her dad, Steven Tyler, checking himself into rehab for an addiction to prescription pain killers.

“My family and I are in complete support of my dad’s decision to seek treatment. He is a courageous man. We love him and are so proud that he is getting help to balance his pain management, not just for himself but for his family, friends and fans.”

According to Access Hollywood, this would be the Aerosmith front man’s second stint in rehab for addiction to prescription pain medications, the first being just over a year ago.

The band recently canceled their summer tour following Steven Tyler’s fall from the stage resulting in a broken shoulder.  At the time, Tyler denied that the fall was “drug related”, though that assertion is perhaps now cast in a different light with his admission of his current addiction issues.
