John Galliano, Still in Rehab, Is Expected To Attend His Trial This Week

, who has been in rehab since early March, "is still in rehab," a source close to the designer confirms to Vogue UK. "The treatment will be long and arduous — and ongoing for a long time in the future — but he is humble, apologetic and hopeful that he can recover."

But: Galliano will still appear at his trial on Wednesday, as was expected, his lawyer Aurelien Hamelle confirms. Hamelle also notes that Galliano has "been doing nothing. He's treating his addiction to alcohol and medication. He will think about his professional future" after the trial.

The Wednesday hearing is expected to span four or five hours, with five people set to testify, including two girls who were sitting next to Galliano during the Feb. 24 altercation who did not hear him say anything anti-Semitic, and two friends of the woman who Galliano allegedly insulted last year, who are expected to confirm her version of the events.

As for Galliano himself, Hamelle says he "does not remember because he was in an altered state. ... This video, where he even looks a little strange to himself, gave him a shock." Hamelle added that the alleged insults "do not reflect what [Galliano] thinks. He's not anti-Semitic or racist."
