Jamie Hince - Jamie Hince Urges John Galliano To Face Up To 'Alcohol Problem'

British rocker Jamie Hince has blamed John Galliano's infamous rants in February (11) on the designer's alleged "problem with alcohol".
The famed couturier is said to have hurled anti-Semitic abuse at two strangers during a night out in Paris, France and was also caught on video talking about his "love" for Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.
As a result, he was fired by his bosses at Christian Dior and is now facing legal action, but his lawyer blamed the outbursts on a bad reaction to a cocktail of "alcohol mixed with medications".
Hince, whose fiancee Kate Moss is a friend of the designer, admits he was upset to read about Galliano's "self-destructive" behaviour - and has appealed to the star's critics to "dig a bit deeper" and consider his personal issues.
He tells Britain's The Sunday Times Magazine, "I haven't seen the video and I don't even know John that well, but I feel like people have got to see reason here. John has a problem with alcohol and the reality is that when we're in trouble, and that's all of us, we say things that are self-destructive; we say the most violent, cursed things.
"You can judge them on the stupid words they said - which I think were stupid, I hope that goes without saying - or you can dig a bit deeper and you can try to find out what the problem is. And I think it's obvious that it's alcohol... people are trying to say those are his politics, 'I love Hitler' - that's not political, that's somebody in trouble!"
