HOWARD Stern convinced David Arquette to check into rehab.
The shock jock was apparently concerned about David’s so well-being, so reportedly advised the actor — who recently split from wife Courteney Cox — to seek help.
“David’s breakup with Courteney has hit him really hard,” a source told Hollywood Life.
“With the holidays, things came to a head. The past month has only made everything in his life seem worse.
“Howard had to deal with past trauma with Artie Lange and he didn’t want things with David to get out of hand. He respects his friendship with David and was looking to help in any way he could.”
Previous reports claimed David needs help with alcohol and other issues.
“He is in there for drinking and depression, not hard drugs. Rehab was inevitable,” a source told People magazine. “He is dealing with a broken heart. He can’t handle all the changes in his life. All his inner demons came out.
“He’s just not handling this situation well. He’s really depressed.”
“He’s trying to win Courteney back, and he turned back to drinking again out of frustration,” another insider added to Us Weekly magazine.
“He is doing this to show her he means it and will do anything for her and their daughter Coco. He wants his family life back. It’s been so hard on him.”
