Tammy Sytch, who is considered as the first WWE Diva, finally decided to enter a rehabilitation facility with an aim to reduce possible jail time for three DUI-related charges last year.
According to ProWrestlingSheet.com, Sytch, who is known as “Sunny” in the world of wrestling, had check in a retreat facility that will help her get “healthy again.” Her sister stated that the 43-year old former wrestling star’s health has not been good and with her decision to undergo rehabilitation, she wants to regain back her health.
“It’s a retreat that focuses on the body and mind while using a holistic approach offering yoga, music therapy, art and holistic supplements to help the body heal. She is hoping to feel better soon and looks forward to a healthier future,” Sytch sister said.
This is not the first time that Sytch had been in trouble with the law. In 2012, Sytch was arrested five times in a four-week span, for disorderly conduct, third degree burglary, and three counts of violating a protective order.
She was arrested a sixth time in January 2013, also for violating a protective order. Sytch served 114 days in jail and was released in May 2013. While in jail, Sytch said that she was diagnosed with cervical cancer but underwent a hysterectomy and was later diagnosed as cancer free.
In January 2016, Sytch pleaded guilty to driving while under suspension-DUI related charges stemming from three separate arrests in May and June 2015. The DUI-related charges pushed her to get professional help in a hope to be sober once again.
TMZ reported that the Sytch has been planning to enter a rehabilitation facility for over a month and has been trying to reach out to her friends before she would check in to get help. Sytch told friends that by entering the rehabilitation facility she hope that it would help her “offset” her possible sentence which the court will hand down next month.
“[Tammy] is hoping to feel better soon and looks forward to a healthier future,” a friend added.
Prior to her check in to a rehab facility Sytch released an autobiography titled “A Star Shattered: The Rise & Fall & Rise of Wrestling Diva Tammy “Sunny” Sytch,” in February.
