When Richie definitely was drinking and taking pills a few years ago and admitted doing so, Jon said if he hadn't got help he would still have remained a member of the band, still appeared in photos of the band, and they would have got someone else to play alongside Richie when they performed. So how come it's not happening IF it is true. Still think its problems are money. Jon worships $$$
You correct and Richie always admitted to the issues also.

So glad you wrote that, I guess Ava wants her Dad to get back on drugs and booze, since he has surrounded himself with her more than anyone else. Of course, he is going to promote the Fashion Line, but does that mean Nikki is a druggie too ? I honestly don't know anything about her other than what I've read on here. My only opinion about her is that she sure doesn't look like she's still under 30 to me !
Nikki is in her 30s,

Can you recall what interview when Jon said this? I do remember the official announcement stated that Richie was still a member of the band. I never read or heard Jon saying that part about still being in photos and someone else playing alongside of Richie on stage if he didn't get help.

I actually find that last part rather bizare as I just can't picture Richie ever agreeing for that to happen!!

People do. That's just it. No one will ever prove anything to anyone on a message board and I understand that. But it's time people stop attacking each other and realize someones well being is at stake here.
They KNOW? Or they have a gut-level conviction? If they know, where is the evidence? I'm not attacking anyone; but asking a sincere question that's been asked several times by myself and others, to which there has been no response from the people who seem to know. If a direct response is posted at all, it usually points to past history, the video of Richie licking his lips, or the claim that Richie and those who don't think he's still drinking/drugging are in denial. The question remains unanswered.

Where is the factual evidence that Richie is still drinking/drugging and has been since before April, and that Jon, despite his public statement that the issue is NOT alcohol, has set the condition that Richie gets clean before returning to tour/to the band?

Denial. It ain't a river in Egypt.
Of course he's denying it...
Richie wants the money he was due while he wasn't on the tour, he would lose any credibility of that law suit by admitting this now.
There's a law suit?? Why on earth would Richie be due any money for the time he wasn't on tour?(Other than royalties, which I assume would be a separate thing altogether.)

Unless, I guess, Jon did in fact kick him off the tour and Richie feels it's unjustified?

This is a good question what lawsuit? I asked Bounce about her post concerning this and did not get an answer. I have not seen anything referencing a lawsuit. If there was a legal action filled between Richie and Jon I cannot believe that the media would have over looked.

You can't think lawyers aren't involved at this point? We are talking millions of dollars of salary.

Maybe lawsuit was the wrong word. And not everything involved lawyers would be in the media.

Some legal agreements or suits have confidentiality clauses. Eg if it's leaked to the media the deal is off. I would guarantee you this is one of them.

Lawsuit is possibly wrong word but if you were reading Richie's rumour fix articles as the truth, and Jon kicked him off or fired him. Lawyers would be involved. Pretty much anything with BJM has a lawyer involved.

Thanks for the clarification. I agree lawyers must be involved at this point. Probably trying to iron things out before anything turns into a lawsuit.

Oh, I absolutely agree. In fact way back in the beginning when so many fans were screaming that Richie or BJM should say something; that they "owed" the fans an explanation, I suggested then that they had probably been advised not to say anything, either due to legal restrictions or effecting negotiations or whatever else might be going on.(Yeah, THAT went over like a lead balloon!:)) Glad to see that I'm not the only one who thought that was a logical assumption! I just hadn't heard specifically about a lawsuit per se. That's why I asked. Thanks for clearing that up.

And what about the previous post. When you said,'People do know" in response to someone's earlier question about Richie's current addiction issues, it sounded like you were stating it as fact. DO you know that for a fact that Richie is currently drinking/drugging or is just your own personal conviction?

A sober coach is like having a personal AA sponser 24/7. It is someone who helps the addict get back to real life, and deal with issues as they come up in a new way, whereas in the past the addict would drink or drug when a problem came up now they have to find new ways to deal, and the sober coach helps them stay sober/straight while they learn how. The toughest part of getting sober /straight isn't getting off the booze/drugs. Seven days in a good medical facility will have anyone be technically clean and sober. The tough part is learning how and then having the discipline to sty off the booze/ drugs, to find other ways of dealing with stress, problems, everyday issues and still live your life. In the case of celebrity in general it's tougher because of the very nature of their lives. By that I mean there are a huge number of public appearances, parties, charity events that are a normal part of life. All of these involve access to alcohol, and there are any number of behind the scenes people that can hand you your favorite drug of choice any time, all you have to do is ask. For people who aren't used to being told "no", the temptation is always right there.
Got it. Thanks for the post. I never heard of it before. But then no reason to know it. I appreciate your help.

Quick question. I've out of the loop but after the whole inside story Randi Reid article came out, and then Rumourfix published immediately that Richie was going to dispel the rumours exclusively, did this even happen? I just googled and nothing came up.

Just curious and not going to make an opinion about it at the moment, I just was looking for any progression in the ping pong match.

Cheers.

Ah right, thanks for clarifying that.
Cheers Yamo01 for the re-post of the other article too, I don't know that I had seen that one.
