AJ McLean Checks Into Rehab Again

AJ McLean of Backstreet Boys fame has checked himself into rehab once again, according to TMZ.

The singer, who also sought treatment for alcohol and drug abuse back in 2001 and 2002, is rumored to have been binging in recent weeks, which led to his decision.

The news comes as a shock to many, as his Backstreet Boys have been making a comeback along with New Kids on the Block. The groups performed together on New Year’s Eve, keeping the NKOTBSB buzz that was born at the American Music Awards last November.

Earlier this week, McLean tweeted: “Thank u all for my bday wishes and tweets:)! Its gonna be a great year! I love u all and wish me luck! I start my sober journey tomm! Ttfn!”

There’s no word yet on how this might impact the Backstreet Boys’ upcoming tour with New Kids on the Block.
