No other comments will be made at this time." A source is quoted in Britain's The Sun newspaper as saying: "Colin faced his demons and decided to get clean."
The wild star is known for his love of women and partying. Last year, he confessed to a magazine that he had even smoked heroin. He admitted: "For some reason, it seemed pretty f*****g nice at the time. There was nothing I wouldn't have f*****g done. Whatever was around."
