There's been quite a bit going on in the world of Dave Chappelle. First, rumours were there was a salary dispute regarding the return of his show. Then people were saying the show was being put on hiatus. Now, Entertainment Weekly is saying that the comedian has checked into a mental health facility in South Africa, of all places.

As it stands, it appears that "Chappelle's Show" will not return for a third season, at least not next year. (via TV Squad)

Comedian Dave Chappelle has checked himself into a mental health facility in South Africa and has remained there since late April, according to a source close to the situation. The same source denies rumors of drug abuse. Other sources have also told EW that the future of Chappelle's Show -- the hit Comedy Central series that was entering its third season -- is more uncertain than the network has suggested.
