Jonny Craig: “I want to make amends to everyone I hurt”

Emarosa and Dance Gavin Dance vocalist Jonny Craig has completed his detox treatment for drug addiction and has issued a statement apologizing for the internet fraud he perpetrated against fans during the past year.

In a blog post, Craig says:
"I want to apologize for my recent behavior. My actions regarding taking advantage of fans was inexcusable. I'm in the process of paying everyone back so please forgive me. My state of mind was completely shot and obviously my decision making skills were heavily impaired due to my drug use. I've since been in detox and successfully completed the treatment. I've learned a lot from this ordeal and I realized I've redeemed my second chance. I want to personally thank Eric at Artery and Craig at Rise for helping me through this emotionally and financially. I'm embarrassed with my past actions, I want to make amends to everyone I hurt. Again, sorry to all my fans, family, band mates and colleagues. I'm truly sorry. Now back to work...I'm looking forward to seeing all the DGD fans and their positive energy that they always bring to the shows. With that being said, the past will stay dead and let's toast to the future kids."

Altpress broke the news late last month that Craig had checked into a North Hollywood detox facility and that Rise Records and Artery Foundation Artist Management would reimburse more than 16 fans who paid the singer for MacBooks he had posted for sale online but never sent. In the meantime, Emarosa continued to tour with former Tides Of Man vocalist Tilian Pearson filling in on vocals.

Do you believe Craig's apology is sincere? Does this change your opinion of him? Let us know!
