Matt Newton Is Out Of Rehab

The former host of The X Factor, Matt Newton appears to be out of rehab the Sunday Telegraph reports.

The article states he has been seen out and about in Sydney, and also he has activate his Facebook page again. Because clearly these days re-activating your social media accounts means you are officially back in circulation.

What I found strange about the article was the use of the word rehab throughout the article. As it was my understanding from previous media reports on the Matt Newton internment that the issue had not been substance abuse. Also in THAT interview with his parents they insinuated he had had some mental issues for sometimes.

When are we going to normalise psychiatric issues? When a person who has clearly been in a psychiatric hospital for a few months why cannot it be reported as such. Anyway I am sure people will be watching to see what Matt’s next move is going to be. However I will be surprised if he is on our TV screens this year.

Hey Brain Dead Dave – do you think the paps should be following him, or should they leave him alone?

I am a bit mixed about it all, Matt appears to be pretty mixed up, and would indicate that he is/was very mentally ill if he was in hospital for that length of time.
