Elvis Crespo Admits to Alcoholism After Public Beating & Defecation

Elvis Crespo has found himself in embarrassing headlines again – and admitted that he suffers from alcoholism. According to the Huffington Post, the 41-year-old Puerto Rican singer was beaten after drunkenly trying to kiss and refusing to pay a restaurant manager in Puerto Rico.

EFE reported the incident, which took place in San Juan de Isla Verde in the wee hours of Monday morning. As a result of the incident, Crespo defecated in his pants.

After a few days of silence and upon leaving the Doctor Leonardo Valentín Tirado hospital last Thursday night, the Grammy winner addressed reporters about that night. He said he felt ashamed over his altercation with Alexander de Jesús. He also revealed that he had an alcohol relapse.

“What happened on Monday morning was definitely unfortunate and embarrassing,” the singer told reporters. “I was wrong and I apologize to my family, to my fans. I admit that I have a problem with alcohol, and that I have to work on it. I'm already seeking rehabilitation."
