Steven Adler of Guns N Roses was rushed to the hospital at 6:30 pm last night after a 911 call was made stating someone at his L.A. residence had stabbed themselves. Upon arrival it was discovered it was Adler who had stabbed himself in the stomach. No sign of anyone else being involved in the stabbing was found. While not life threatening, as is the case with suicide attempts, there is a strong possibility he may be kept for psychiatric evaluation. As to the reason he might be suicidal, that isn’t clear but he has a very long history of substance abuse.
In the past, he was kicked out of Guns N Roses for his heroin abuse in 1990 and has been in rehab off and on since the 80s. He had caused the group to literally be on hold for 2 years because of his habits. He’s had a stroke from doing speed and proceeded to be on a number of rehab shows in the late 2000s from Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, Sober House and Celebrity Rehab, one of which he was arrested for being aggressive with others on the premises. One thing we can say about Adler is that God clearly wants him on this Earth because he’s been given more chances than a few in his lifetime and he’s lucky to still be here. We’re praying for his speedy recovery and hope that he has people around him to ensure that something like this doesn’t happen again.
