“They are trying to get Caleb to rehab. That’s why they ended up cancelling the whole tour,” says one source. “He drinks like a fish.”

As a result, recent shows were cut short.

Another source adds, “It’s true. Caleb’s drinking is out of control and they are trying to get him into rehab. It’s a dark demon he has been fighting for awhile.”

Meanwhile, representatives for the band defend Caleb Followill saying he is under doctor’s orders for vocal rest. “They feel terrible about cancelling. They look forward to getting back on the road at the end of September.”

Caleb’s brother and band member, Jared, has been tweeting about his brother’s conflict. After news of the cancelled tour was made public, he tweeted, “Utterly depressed. It’s completely out of my hands. Family has to come 1st.”
