"All the stories gave the impression he was doing great, but that is not the case," the official added.

As readers know, Lange's worst nightmare became a grave reality when the troubled comic was ordered into an intense six-month drug court program back in March.

Lange was previously arrested on January 31 for testing positive for cocaine.

After detoxing for three days in jail, he was checked into a 30-day rehab program at a halfway house before entering the drug court program.
