Marc Jacobs Heads Back To Rehab

03/12/2007 at 04:21 PM ET

We are all big fans of the exceptionally talented designer, Marc Jacobs — from his work on his own labels to revamping Louis Vuitton, he has put a major stamp on the way woman dress. Today, we were saddened to hear the news that Jacobs had headed back into rehab at a treatment facility in Arizona, after seven years of sobriety. His business partner Robert Duffy told Women’s Wear Daily, “Marc made the right decision. He’d been sober for seven years. When he relapsed, he wanted to deal with it right away.” We wish him the best of luck in his recovery. For the full story, click here to read more in News.

those models look eerie…

good for him getting help – but not sure what i think about all these celebs going to rehab recently – do you think it has anything to do with publicity???

i hope they all get the help they need.

He is my favorite designer and I’m glad he is getting help. It is better to deal with it right away before it escalates.

Good luck Marc we will be waiting for you when you get out! Remeber thouse 12 steps, as well as you iconic fashion since!

Aww. Are you serious? This did make me so sad, but I’m also very glad he’s getting treatment. Marc is my absolute favorite designer, but health always comes before clothes. You in our thoughts Marc and we all love you!

As a follower of a 12 step program hearing all these celbs going in rehab. I’m thinking it’s the in thing to do like going to a spa. What ever it takes but rehab will never beat detoxing at your local aa meeting where they will love ya until you can love yourself.

MARC JACOBS AND JIMMY CHOO ARE MY TOP TWO FAVORITE DESIGNERS! MARC HAS TALENT AND CREATIVITY I AM SOOOO SAD THAT HE IS IN REHAB:( LUV YA MARC!

My goodness you sound shocked.. I thought that Rehab was a requirement in Hollywood, I didn’t know it was a choice. With all the stars, musicians and now designers making it trendy, I just assumed you had to do it to be known. Oh well, my bad.

By the way, are those real people models or mannequins?

Wow, *everyone* is going to rehab these days. I applaud Mr. Jacobs for being proactive and going to rebab now and not waiting until odd public behavior creates a scandal (escaping rehab twice in a week, shaving one’s head, skipping work due to hangov… I mean, exhaustion, etc). On a sidenote, how come recently rehabbed celebs like Lindsay Lohan are still partying and going to clubs? Isn’t that sort of like a compulsive shopper hanging out at a mall? It’s just like waving a steak in front of a hungry bear, no?
Anyway, Mr. Jacobs certainly has been busy lately – I imagine the Paris shows were a terribly hectic time, and extreme stress can contribute to “falling off the wagon.” Again, I applaud him for taking a proactive stance on his health and wellbeing! I wish him the best!

good luck to marc. i doubt this is a publicity stunt like someone above suggested. he’s a respected designer who is obviously intelligent enough to take a proactive approach towards his addiction. if we constantly have to read about rehab, i’d much rather read this type of story instead of how britney gets to leave to go shopping at her ‘treatment facility’.

Marc Jacobs has been extremely successful with his fashion line. Too bad, he was clean from drinking and then fell back into the habit. Jacobs knows that he has a problem and getting help is a step forward and shows him wanting to take action.

For those of you who think rehab is just the fad, you obviously are ignorant about addiction. Hollywood is known for having access to all the alcohol and drugs one could dream up of. Being addicted hasn’t been marked as a trend and neither should getting help for the addiction.

To my one and only. You have changed so much through all of this. I’ll be here for you when you get out with open arms. I’ll love you with all my heart til the day I die.xoxojayjay
