After 6 years of sobriety, Melanie Griffith checked herself into rehab. After three knee surgeries, she was prescribed painkillers. The close contact with the control substance proved too much for the star.
Antonio Banderas, her husband, spoke candidly regarding the relapse on the Ellen DeGeneres show. He said, “In March, she came to me and said, ‘I’m feeling a little bit weak in my determination for this … so I just thought to go to rehabilitation by myself.'”
It’s amazing to see the level of awareness Griffith has shown through this.
