Ryan Lochte is seeking treatment for a “serious” alcohol addiction. The Olympic gold medalist made the decision to get professional help after an incident last week when he tried to kick in his own hotel door in California.
His agent released a statement saying, “Ryan has been battling from alcohol addiction for many years and unfortunately it has become a destructive pattern for him. He has acknowledged that he needs professional assistance to overcome his problem and will be getting help immediately.”
