According to the report, last Sept. was the darkest time in Armstrong’s life. The Green Day front man made headlines for dissing Justin Bieber, and smashing his guitar on stage during the iHeartRadio festival.
That outburst forced the band to postpone tour dates, and was reportedly a wakeup call for the Green Day singer. Billie Jo Armstrong soon after checked into rehab.
"I remember tiny things," Armstrong said. "The next morning, I woke up. I asked (my wife) Adrienne, 'How bad was it?' She said, 'It's bad.'" Billie Jo’s manager sent him on a plane to an Oakland rehab center the same day.
"I couldn't predict where I was going to end up at the end of the night. I'd wake up in a strange house on a couch. I wouldn't remember how. It was a complete blackout,” Billie Jo Armstrong admitted.
While the Green Day singer has completed his rehab stay, and has rejoined his punk rock band. The group will make its comeback at the South by Southwest music festival in March.
