Anchor Elizabeth Vargas, 51, checked into another rehab facility while on vacation to fight her alcohol addiction, and a source close to the family tells People that her two sons with husband Marc Cohn are with their father as their mother is in treatment. The report also says that Cohn and Vargas are beginning divorce proceedings.
The source tells People legal proceedings are underway, but Cohn gave the magazine a statement of support for his wife. “On behalf of Elizabeth’s family, we are in total support of her recovery and want her to be well,” he writes.
Vargas has spoken openly about her alcoholism on “Good Morning America,” and said in a statement after re-entering rehab, “I am committed to battling and addressing this debilitating disease and want to thank everyone who has offered their unwavering support during this trying time.”
