Melbourne: Singer Peter Andre confessed that he checked himself into a New York rehab clinic after receiving death threats at his career’s peak.
London-born Andre, who spent much of his youth and began his music career in Australia, enjoyed chart success in the UK and the US in the 1990s.
He revealed that he received chilling messages and newspaper cuttings with lyrics of his songs at the initial stage, reports a website.
Andre, 37, told OK! Magazine, “I received letters like: ``I’m going to kill you``, with symbolic lyrics of my songs written on them, I was getting death threats, people were texting me with my parents`` address saying: ``Say goodbye to them``.”
Andre was left so traumatized by the threats that he decided checking himself into a psychiatric ward for two weeks till he felt safe.
"I was having up to 20 panic attacks a day, I couldn’t cope, I couldn’t work, I didn’t know what to do, it was a really bad time. I was pretty young so I probably wasn’t as bothered as I would be now," he added.
