Kings of Leon Mom Shoots Down Break Up Rumors

All you Kings of Leon fans fretting over the drama that has caused the band to cancel a tour earlier this summer should relax! According to the mother of three of the Followill brothers, the band will "be back better than ever" sooner than later.
There was some concerns about a drinking problem when singer Caleb Followill walked off stage midway through the group's show in Dallas last month. He was bitching about the intense heat and vocal problems.
He was then placed under doctor's orders to rest his vocal chords for a month. Subsequent tweets posted by the band members indicated that there was more at play and perhaps a trip to rehab was necessary. It was drama with a capital "D."
Now, Betty Ann Murphy – mother of Caleb, Nathan and Jared, and aunt to Matthew – has quelled rumors of rehab and breaks ups, insisting her boys just drink "more than they should." How many of you out there fit that description?
Murphy told Star that "It's not the end of the band. Sometimes they all drink more than they should – they're young men and go on a binge. None of them need rehab. They'll be back better than ever."
Do you believe Betty Ann Murphy's comments? Do you think that the Kings of Leon will be back and better than ever soon?
