Ian Thorpe rumored to enter rehab to address depression and alcohol addiction - One report says no!

The YouTube video above states his manager has posted a statement that he has not entered rehab, but an article posted earlier today by the Mail says he has.

The worst kind of drug addict or alcoholic is one who knows that they are an addict and could care less about doing something about. 

The most courageous and inspiring alcoholic is one who tackles the problem, seeks to be rid of it and makes a public declaration that they need help.

I hope this gets clarified soon

From the Mail:
"... The swimmer said he also felt the need to stay silent about his depression, thinking it was a 'character flaw'.

'Not even my family is aware that I've spent a lot of my life battling what I can only describe as a crippling depression.’

He admits in the book that he is ready to speak to his parents about his depression, but this is the first time he has been reported to have sought treatment. ..."
