Many fans are asking what happened to Deryck Whibley as the Sum 41 band member has dramatically altered his appearance. Whibley is a former shell of himself as he has lost a dramatic amount of weight and looks painstakingly thin.
Whibley, 34, admitted to reporters that he has been laid up in a hospital bed for months. The lead singer stated that his years of heavy drinking have caught up with him and he has fallen ill to the point where he needs professional medical treatment.
Seeking treatment for alcoholism, Deryck Whibley was seen with his fiancee Jocelyn Aguilar and another woman taking a casual stroll in Los Angeles. Whibley confessed on his personal blog:
“hey everyone, it’s deryck here. sorry i’ve been so m.i.a. lately, but i’ve been very sick in the hospital for a month and was pretty sick for a few weeks leading up to my trip to the hospital. the reason i got so sick is from all the hard boozing i’ve been doing over the years. it finally caught up to me. i was drinking hard every day. until one night. i was sitting at home, poured myself another drink around mid night and was about to watch a movie when all of a sudden i didn’t feel so good. i then collapsed to the ground unconscious. “
According to the Sum 41 singer, both his kidneys and liver have collapsed. Doctors have warned the rock sensation that if he were to have even just one more alcoholic drink, he could die. Now struggling with sobriety, Whibley will continue with hospital treatments and rehab in order to recover from his drug abuse.
Aside from his blog posting, Whibley has not made any public comments in regards to his health or recovery at this time.
