Page Six insiders revealed he entered treatment two weeks after appearing to suck a balloon in the front seat of his parked LA car — with their son in the backseat.

He reportedly spent more than thirty minutes outside his home inflating and deflating a balloon in his car.

It is unclear what was inside the balloon.

He took his sleeping son out of the car seat in the back and took him inside.

Drake was seen heading to a local vape shop the next day; he left the store with a bag of supplies and was seen parked under a tree in his car for 15 minutes sucking on a balloon for nearly 15 minutes.

He then went to a local Del Taco and then went home.

“They’ve had incredibly good times before. He needs to focus on his health and they will be great co-parents in the future,” the insider said.

It’s a bad time for Drake. But he’s a great dad when he’s healthy and sober,” the source said.

Page Six reported that Janet, 28, went back to Florida with their son and approached a home there.

She reportedly receives support from her family.

Drake and Janet first started dating in 2013 and they got married five years later in 2018.

Drake is currently serving a two-year probation for child endangerment for endangering a girl’s well-being when she was just 15.

Bell was sentenced to two years of probation and 200 hours of intercourse in July 2021 after pleading guilty to child endangerment charges.

Authorities said a 15-year-old girl attended a Bell concert in Cleveland in 2017 and contacted Toronto police in October 2018 about sexual assault.

Toronto authorities then forwarded their findings to the Cleveland Police Department, prompting an investigation.

They found that Bell and the girl had “developed a relationship” online prior to the concert, with Bell sending the girl “inappropriate messages on social media.”

He was later charged with attempted child endangerment for “breaching his duty of care” and creating a risk of harm to the victim, Cuyahoga County Attorney General’s Office spokesman Tyler Sinclair explained at the time.

During his virtual sentencing last year, the victim read her impact statement and claimed she had performed oral sex on the star when she was 15 years old.

“These are crimes that are unforgivable and unforgivable,” she said. They cannot be taken back. He was calculating, preying on me and sexually abusing me. He is a monster and a danger to children.

“I kindly ask you to send a strong signal that these crimes are never okay, no matter who anyone is,” the victim continued.

She continued, “And he can give me that look all he wants, but he knows exactly what I’m talking about.”

“He is the epitome of evil,” she said. ‘I deserve better than to be used for his morbid desires, and my sufferings used for his amusement. Jared Drake Bell is a pedophile and that’s his legacy.”

He seemed visibly shaken by the accusation, and in response the victim addressed him directly and said, “Don’t look at me like that!”

Bell then addressed the court himself, saying, “I want to say today that I accept this plea because my conduct was wrong.”

“I have taken this matter very, very seriously,” he added. “I want to apologize to her and to anyone who may have been affected by my actions.”

The Nickelodeon star had pleaded guilty to attempted child endangerment and a misdemeanor charge of distributing material harmful to young people just a month earlier.

And during sentencing, his attorney made sure to note that he had not been charged with the more serious crimes of sexual assault and pedophilia that the victim alleged in her impact statement.

Months later, Bell attempted to downplay his belief in a fawning Instagram video.

“Most of the news you’ve heard lately is completely false and wrong,” he said.

“I think you deserve an explanation, and I owe you one,” he continued. “I haven’t changed my name.”

“I know this has moved very quickly for you, but for me it has been a thorough three-year investigation into every false claim that has been made.”

And I’m not saying the claims are false, but the state of Ohio has proven the claims false.

“If these claims were remotely true, my situation would be very different. I wouldn’t be at home here with my wife and my son.’

He continued, “But having said that, I’m not perfect and I make mistakes.”

“I was replying to a fan whose age I didn’t know, but when I became aware of their age, all conversation and communication stopped.”

“This person kept coming to shows and paying for meet and greets, not knowing that this was the same person I was communicating with online, which is what I am pleading guilty to.

“These were reckless and irresponsible text messages. I want to make it clear that there was no sexual imagery, nothing physical between me and this person.”

He added: “I have not been charged with anything physical. I was not accused of spreading her images or anything like that. This was strictly through text messages.

“And when I was offered a plea deal because of the reports, I felt it was the best way to get this over with quickly and for everyone involved to move forward. And that I can do what I love again, and that is making music for you.’

“I want to thank you, for, uh, everyone who saw through the lies and did the research and looked at my case and saw it for what it was instead of all that confusion in the media.”

He concluded: ‘Don’t immediately believe the media. It’s a lot of clickbait. Do your own research and come to your own conclusions. I want to thank everyone for staying with me. I love you and see you soon.’

The former child star has been in trouble with the law before, after being sentenced to four days in jail for drunk driving in 2015, which was his second DUI conviction in a six-year span.
