Elton John helps Keane frontman Tom Chaplin through rehab
Elton John has reportedly taken another troubled celebrity under his wing.
Elton has previously helped Robbie Williams and Donatella Versace beat drugs, Madonna & Guy Ritchie and Victoria & David Beckham with marriage troubles and provided a home for Liz Hurley after she gave birth to son Damian - and now he’s helping Keane frontman Tom Chaplin through rehab for drugs and alcohol addictions.
A source close to Tom told the Mirror: “Tom’s had so much support after going into rehab but he never expected it would come from someone like Sir Elton John.”
“At first he thought it was a wind up - why would Elton take the time out to contact him? Even though they met at Live 8 last year, they’re weren’t exactly close friends.”
“Tom was moved by the gesture and they’ve been in touch frequently. Elton knows exactly what Tom’s going through.”
“He believes he has a real talent and doesn’t want to see it all going to waste.”
