that was very telling IMO. the line about "he didnt show up" and that the band is there for him whenever HE is ready sounds like this is richie's demons whether its booze, pills or mental I dont know but unless Jon is a better actor then Deniro he sounded truthful to me and maybe even a little annoyed.

Jon does say "we have been thru this before"
so that may mean richie's in rehab or something like that?

I tend to agree with that theory although I wasn't leaning that way when this first started but now it does seem that way. its to bad. I know addiction can be a terrible thing and as much as I hate to say it you can only stand by someone for so long and 30 years is alot to throw away.

The video is the best explanation we've gotten so far. Jon all but admitted this is about Richie's addiction issues, but that makes Richie's tweet on March 29th (...the tour resumes on Tuesday...) seem even more odd. After sending that tweet, what suddenly happened to make him decide a couple of days later not to continue with the tour?

Also, if this is about addiction issues that just HAD to be addressed immediately, then why hasn't he checked into rehab? If this is bad enough that he has to miss months of the tour I seriously doubt any out-patient program is going to provide him with the help he needs. So he's let the fans down by not showing up and he's letting himself down by not getting the help he (apparently) truly needs.

At least Britney Spears admits that she needs a conservator.

The article may be right overall, that this is about Richie's issues, but the bit about Dorothea does not fit with Jon's statement that Richie just didn't show up.

Guess it's all just wait and see.

I don't think Dorothea has anything to do with it.

Playing with those spoons is telling me he is either lying again (he has admitted to doing that to press before) Or not telling the whole truth.

Why is it drugs or booze? Cant it be about an argument. There is no way a flight would not have been booked months in advance for all of the guys. If the decision was made not to be there it can very easily be about broken promises. Maybe Jon said yes to solos but waited till final performance to give one. Then you cant really come back mid leg after it was anounced he would not be tnere.

well obviously he is not telling the WHOLE truth, but the question is what is he covering. maybe it is a fight between them or its richies addiction. either way at this point the ball is in richies court he made the decision to not face up to whatever it is.

Just finished watching the press conference video.
Jon looks HOT in his shades and leather jacket the hair looks good too. Watching him hold the spoon was funny it's probably more of a nervous habit they should have given him a pen. You can tell he's getting tired of being put on the spot and answering the Richie question but he's handling it well.

Or it means nothing at all or he is just playing with a spoon. Personally, I think it's just there and he is playing with it, if it had been a pen, paper, phone anything. If Richie had been there next to him right there, he would have probably done the same thing.

Tico is also playing with something in his hands. Is he lying too when he speaks?
