The rep would not specify what caused the accident, except to describe it as a “very minor, superficial wound.” So much so, we’re told Adler still plans to perform a July 12 gig in Las Vegas. The show must go on, as they say.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ someone at Adler’s L.A. home called 911 shortly after 6:30 PM Thursday night to report someone had stabbed themselves. We’re told when cops and paramedics arrived, they discovered it was Adler who had suffered a stab wound to his stomach.
Steven Adler has a long history of substance abuse so much so that he got kicked out of Gun N’ Roses in 1990. Which…yikes. It’s a bad sign if Guns N’ Roses is saying you’re too wild. I can’t imagine Axl Rose and Slash being the voice of reason on someone’s sobriety.
Adler has openly struggled with substance abuse for decades. He was kicked out of Guns N’ Roses over his drug addiction in 1990 … but was later inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with the group in 2012.
Steven Alder has tried to get sober many times in the past, including two appearances on Celebrity Rehab. He even did Celebrity Sober House. Sadly, when he starred in Sober House he was arrested for being under the influence and getting aggressive with his cast mates. He shared a season with Jeff Conway and Rodney King, both of whom have died.
He’s also been arrested a handful of times for drug possession and domestic violence.
And even though Celebrity Rehab seems like the worst place to try to get sober, Steven says it has helped him out. And after his past of violent messiness, he has done a few acts of kindness like saying he hopes sharing his struggles with his sobriety helps others, and also letting us know that Steven Tyler has a big peen.
