    R&B B artist El DeBarge has checked into rehab. The singer, 49, is canceling his tour and is headed to treatment to help overcome his problems with years of substance abuse.

    "I hate to disappoint my fans but it is necessary for me to take the time to work on me so that I may continue to share my music and my story with everyone," the singer said in a statement. "I thank everyone in advance for their prayers and well wishes and hope that you will respect my privacy during this time."

    The singer was scheduled to go on tour this week, but those plans are on hold while he deals with his personal and physical issues.

    Best of luck to El Debarge in his recovery.
