Girls Aloud‘s Sarah Harding has checked into rehab to deal with ‘alcohol and depression issues’.
The singer and actress, a regular face on London’s party circuit, apparently hit “rock bottom” after splitting from her fiancé Tom Crane last month, according to The Sun.
An unnamed tabloid ‘source’ claimed that the singer has “hit the bottle” to deal with the heartache of the split, which saw the 29-year-old call off her summer 2012 wedding to the DJ.
The ‘mole’ said:
She’s been through a traumatic time in her personal life and had to honour her work commitments on top. She needs some time out to clear her head.
A spokesman for the band confirmed to the newspaper that Harding has entered a treatment centre to deal with her demons.
Girls Aloud are set to reunite in 2012 to celebrate the tenth anniversary of being put together on ITV talent show Popstars: The Rivals.
Earlier this year, band member Nadine Coyle confirmed that the five-piece were “definitely” going to do something to mark the milestone, with gigs and a new album mooted.
