Having a newborn son hasn’t stopped the party for David Arquette. In a new interview, the rehab vet reveals that he’s drinking again despite having a nearly four-month-old baby, son Charlie West, and a fiancée, Christina McLarty, at home.
“I’m not sober,” Arquette admitted during an on-camera interview with RumorFix.com on Wednesday night in L.A. “It’s very hard to [work in the nightlife field and stay sober]. That’s probably why I’m not sober.”
“It’s hard. If you want to be sober in nightlife, good luck!” Arquette, who is part-owner in Hollywood nightlife spots Bootsy Bellows and Hooray Henrys told RumorFix. “Go to a lot of [AA] meetings.”
After more than two years of sobriety, Arquette fell off the wagon in a big way in 2013. As Radar reported, he was spotted downing scotch and hitting up strip clubs in Richmond, VA, before admitting to Howard Stern that he was back to drinking and smoking pot.
“I’m a drinker, so yes, I drink a lot,” he said at the time. “I’ve been sober for two years and four months. And I was feeling like I wasn’t being that true to myself, like what I enjoy and this and that.”
Courteney Cox’s ex entered rehab for alcohol abuse in January, 2011, after bashing his nose on the floor while trying to do the worm at a Hollywood club.
