El Debarge is famous for eighties hits such as “I Like It” and “All This Love.” Unfortunately, what’s equally famous is the singer’s drug addiction and numerous arrests for various drug-related charges. The 50-year-old music veteran made a comeback in 2010 with the album ‘Second Chance,’ and was nominated for two Grammy’s, but shortly after, news surfaced that Debarge entered rehab yet again just days before kicking off his tour. Little did fans know that rapper 50 Cent and R&B entrepreneur Babyface had been the ones to lend a helping hand to the troubled star.
