If he has fallen/leapt off the wagon recently I think we would have seen pictures. He is out of control when he's boozing and people seek him out for photos when he's in bad shape. I think it's the cancer that's kept him out of the public eye, I can't imagine he's boozing etc. at home. I don't think his family could keep him in the basement because he's such a mean, bossy drunk.Except that he's been off the wagon in public quite frequently ... although maybe the family is more aware of those optics now?
