Jesus.. Didn't watch the full video but I honestly didn't expect it. Hope he can get well quickly.

that explains it

good luck to him. though it's not the first time he gets into trouble for booze related stuff. he got a DUI here in the Bay Area about 10 years ago.

I wonder if the issue he had a few weeks back had something to do with his substance abuse?

It isn't unexpected, I mean he said he was doing drugs live on Radio 1 but all the best to him and his treatment

that was my first thought too, but if Billie/close ones think he has issues with drugs/whatever, I hope he gets help and works past it

What a shame but sadly not entirely shocking following the meltdown. Hoping he gets himself better asap.

Damn, I really thought their set was cut short. I was on his side with this but oh well. At least he's getting treatment now.
