Check the main page. Looks like ol' Dave Chapelle is doing just fine. The short description is making it sound like it was almost a publicity stunt. More developing, Drudge says.

COMEDY CHAPPELLE SPEAKS: WHAT I DID FOR $50 MILLION
Sat May 14 2005 19:48:54 ET

**Exclusive**

Dave Chappelle Found! Talks Exclusively with TIME Magazine in South Africa

"I figured, Let me just cut myself off from everybody, take a minute and pull a Flintstone-stop a speeding car by using my feet as the brakes. I am surprised at what I would do for $50 million. I am surprised at what people around me would do for me to have $50 million," Dave Chappelle tells TIME's Christopher John Farley in an exclusive interview.

CHAPPELLE tells TIME he's not in mental hospital or drug rehab, debunking earlier reports in ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY and elsewhere.

The full story, as well as exclusive photos of Chappelle in South Africa, will appear on TIME.com Sunday morning and in the issue that hits newsstands Monday.

Developing...

What do you guys think? Angry? Relieved?

It sounds like he just decided to take a break due to the pressure, which is what we all initially thought before the mental hospital rumor appeared. As far as I can tell, this doesn't mean that Season 3 is coming any time soon. That's still going to be delayed for a while. But it is good news to hear that he is relatively ok.

it crossed my mind that this "mental hospital" he reportedly joined might be nothing more than a day-spa, or something stupid like that. maybe he was just super-stressed out and needed to get away.... i guess it's not surprising for the media to pretend that that means that Dave has "mental problems."

That's awesome. It would have really sucked if Chappelle really had a mental health or drug problem. His comedy is just too great.

The actual, direct article from Time mag is here. ^

Sounds like the man needed some time away with himself, gather up his thoughts, and making sure he's staying on track. Good for him.

/damn media had to report rumours of drug addiciton/asylum - meh..

I don't know why anyone would be angry. The guy took a vacation to get focused or whatever, and the media gave it a big spin. I don't even think it was Chappelle's idea as a publicity stunt, the media did it for him.

It kind of reminds me of the stories where people win the big lotteries (10 mil and up) and because they don't have a strong inner circle, they end up worse off than before they won. I think he just realized that things were getting out of control, and he did something about it. Good for him. I can't wait for things to get back on track and get the 3rd season going.

Oh and the thing about the white sneakers. If that wasn't a joke, he does sound a little obsesive/compulsive...
