    Marc Jacobs in Rehab

    NEW YORK — Marc Jacobs has checked himself into rehab.

    After seven years of sobriety, the designer relapsed recently and decided to undergo a second round of in-patient rehabilitation for drug and alcohol abuse. The day after showing his Louis Vuitton collection in Paris, Jacobs, who has publicly acknowledged substance abuse problems in the past, left the French capital and flew to a treatment facility in Arizona.

    Reached for comment earlier today 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.”

  2. I just came over to post this as well. Glad he is receiving help.
  3. duplicate post. sorry.
  4. All the best for him and his treatment!
  5. I hope things go well for him, and hopefully he'll have some better LV designs when he completes his treatment. I loved the older ones he had done but the new ones are too out there for me. And I love him as a designer!
  6. I agree with this, but at this point in his career,I don't know how much "designing" he actually does. I have a feeling he is more of a supervisor and comes up with ideas, but he does approve everything. He definetly works too hard, and obviously plays too hard too.
  7. ITA. I like when he had more of a hand in it. And I really liked his own clothing lines too.
    Sigh..well I really hope for all the best for him.
  8. awww best wishes to him and a speedy recovery
  9. Part of the problem is probably that play and work overlaps a lot in those professions, like in some others. It's really easy to go overboard.
  10. Good for him for recognizing he needed help. I wish him all the best.
  11. I wish him well in his recovery. I shall wear my stam tomorrow as a gesture of support! xx
  12. ITA. =)
  13. i wish him all the best.
  14. I love Marc. Hopefully he do just fine.
  15. Maybe this explains the horrible LV S/S '07 collection. I hope he gets his creativity back!!
