AJ Mclean of  ‘The Backstreet Boys’ confirmed to People has  checked himself into a Rehab facility for undisclosed reasons.  He issued the following statement:

Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean has once again entered rehab, he confirms to PEOPLE.

“For personal reasons, I’ve checked myself into a rehab clinic,” McLean says in a statement. “With 2011 being a busy year for Backstreet, I want to be healthy and perform and sing for people at my very best and happiest. None of this will affect our current tour plans and I look forward to seeing everyone really soon! Thank you for all of your support and respecting my family and friends privacy during this time.”

McLean, 33, had previously offered clues to his intentions, Tweeting Sunday that “Its gonna be a great year! I love u all and wish me luck! I start my sober journey tomm!”

And then on Monday, he bid his followers farewell: “See u on the other side!”

While he gave no reason why he is seeking treatment, the singer has been in rehab before in 2001 and, again, in 2002 for issues including depression and alcohol abuse.

I Hope that he gets all the help that he needs!  Let’s hope the 3rd time is a charm.
