Ugh … very sad Demi Moore news to pass along today … according to TMZ, paramedics were called to Demi‘s home late Monday night in response to a substance abuse call. After about a half hour of treatment, Demi was rushed to the hospital … then later released so that she could check in to a rehab facility. The official word from Moore‘s publicist claims she is suffering from “exhaustion”. Click below to read all the known deets about this upsetting turn of events.
Demi Moore was rushed to the hospital [Monday] night … and we’re told the issue is substance abuse. Law enforcement tells us a 911 call was placed at 10:45 PM Monday night. Paramedics responded to Demi’s L.A. home and after assessing her for a half hour, she was transported to a local hospital. Sources tell us she is being placed in a facility to “seek further professional assistance.” Our sources say the treatment is for substance abuse. Demi’s rep tells TMZ, “Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health. She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends.”
It’s no secret that Demi‘s personal life has been hit pretty hard since she decided to file for divorce from husband Ashton Kutcher in the wake of allegations that he cheated on her with other women. It seemed as if Demi was doing OK tho … you may recall that at the start of this month we saw her on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar magazine and it was reported that she signed on to play Gloria Steinem in the upcoming biopic Lovelace. We now learn that Demi, in the wake of this rehab stint, has pulled out of appearing in Lovelace (which is currently in filming production right now). Most recently, we saw Demi Moore out on the town partying on Golden Globes night. I HATE to think of how difficult it may have been for Demi since her marriage fell apart. If I’m putting all of the pieces together, it sounds like her personal problems led to dangerous misuse of … substances. I sincerely hope this stint in rehab will help her get the clarity she needs to save her own life. Get well soon, Demi … but please take all the time you need.
