Singer Dumps Famous Actor Due to His Alcohol Addiction

Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle has come out to report her actions as being selfish in her recent split with Jesse Metcalfe.  You might remember Metcalfe from such shows as Desperate Housewives-and well, that’s about all he is known for.  Apparently the actor has been suffering with alcohol addiction and it was too much for Coyle to bear after a year of dating.

This is only the latest in a string of embarrassments for Metcalfe.  After Housewives he struggled to find good work, and his only recent notable appearance in the tabloids came after he was beaten up outside of a nightclub.  After this debacle he was seen riding around town on a motorcycle, a move that was viewed as an attempt to toughen up his fading image.

“He had a horrible time going to rehab and it was all too much for me.  I blocked it out of my life and decided not to be a part of it and that’s wrong. That’s not something you should do if you love somebody.
I regretted being so selfish about it and so dismissive of him genuinely having a problem.” (Source inthenews.co.uk)

It just goes to show you that you can be on top of the acting world one day, beautiful successful singer girlfriend on your arm, and the next day your struggling through rehab, having trouble finding work, and getting beat up outside a club.  Such is the life of an addict, albeit a famous addict.
