Matt Cardle has reportedly entered himself into rehab after becoming addicted to prescription drugs.
A source reportedly told the paper that Matt had been struggling to cope with the stress of making his last two albums independently, after leaving his record label last year.
They added that the singer had allegedly decided to clean up his act on a 28-day programme before the beginning of his UK tour next April.
Earlier this year, he became involved in a war of words with fellow 'X Factor' winner James Arthur.
HuffPost UK has contacted Matt's representative for comment on this story.
