Billie Joe Armstrong Heads to Rehab After Stage Rant

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong is checking into rehab.

Armstrong, 40, will receive treatment for substance abuse, the band's rep told AP on Sunday.

The announcement comes on the heels of a public meltdown at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas on Friday night, where Armstrong lost it on stage after being told he had to wrap up his set.

"You're gonna give me one minute?!" he yelled. "I've been around since f**king nineteen eighty f**king eight, and you're gonna give me one minute?! You've gotta be f**king kidding me!"

Green Day, whose latest album, "Uno," will be released September 25, will cancel some of their promotional appearances while Armstrong undergoes treatment.
