Demi Moore Hospitalized & Rehabbing For Substance Abuse


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.

      @Trent – it is called progress and it always hurts a little. Just know I can see your fingerprints and have the sense that you were here just seconds before I came in. I know you will never be this big suit mogul sitting in a big chair in a glass office sky high in a New York riser. You might be Trent sitting in there though, with your always to the second current Tshirts and your loveably goofy but chic footwear. As long as you don’t change who you are so we can have you forever, I am so happy for your success and hope it continues.

    I just don’t have the heart to care about celebs when so many other horrible things are happening in this world.

    I think the sites getting better, at first I didn’t like it BUT now I’m totally used to it :) well I do have one issue Trent, Melissa needs a capital M :p sort it out ;)

    This is a far cry from her GI Jane days. I hope she rests and recovers and comes back BETTER THAN EVER!

    A “substance abuse call”? What does that even mean?

  6. Patrick

    Having too much wine at dinner is technically “substance abuse”.

    You still can go into a celeb blog even though you don’t care if the celeb goes to rehab…

    To Marc…I understand things are a little different on Trent’s blog now, but you have to understand that Trent has been doing this for years on his own! The ONLY day he regularly takes off is September 11 (I believe?). When he used to write one big post for the day, it was clear that he was basically writing a 5 page paper every day of his life, including research. He only has ONE other writer helping him now, and he was very thoughtful about how she should be introduced and letting her have her own voice. It’s not like other blogs out there that clearly have several other writers who all pretend to be writing as the blog’s owner. This change has been in effect for less than a month, and I bet with time it will grow on you!

    PS…the bald Cynthia Nixon story was actually a follow-up to another post, in which Melissa raved about going to the play for which she shaved her head. The real story was the play, not the baldness….but those pictures came out after Melissa reviewed the play.

  10. Shannon

    Maybe that’s why they broke up. Maybe it wasn’t Ashton at all

    • @Shannon — My first thought was Ashton’s ALLEGED cheating drove her to drink/use :(

    • ChristineLA

      Oh, no, no, no. I don’t care how much of a tool Ashton Kutcher is, the responsibility for THIS lies solely on Demi Moore’s shoulders.

    • JeniLee

      I’ve actually been reading that her substance use has been happening for years…so it may have caused the cheating. Which I in NO WAY condone. If he wanted out he should have divorced her. But it seems like Demi’s stuff happened first. We may never know!

  11. Shannon

    And I’m getting used to the new blog but I think Mr Gyllenhall would have made a better addition to the blog! He always makes me laugh

  12. Shannon

    @Trent lol! And perhaps but in my experience in social work, generally but not always! people don’t develop these kinds of problems overnight

    • @Shannon — Very true but if she had been struggling with … whatever … for a while, I’m certain the drama in her personal life didn’t help the situation.

  13. ganesh

    @Trent…clearly Melissa is not working – she seems barely literate, her prose sucks, and she is not drawing readers in …but hey it’s your blog so whatever you want. Still, i suspect you can find someone who can actually put together a meaningful sentence.

    Love your allegiance and support to her…but she BLOWS!

    • ChristineLA

      I’m just so torn, since he really wouldn’t be the Trent I have been reading for so long if he didn’t support Melissa.

    • Pinkster

      @ganesh…I personally think Melissa has a unique voice and a new perspective that we should embrace. Above all, however, your comments are far too personal and have no place on a blog such as this. The anonymity of the internet is no excuse for being unnecessarily critical and just plain mean. Melissa, ignore the haters out there. Everyone else, please show Melissa some positive feedback to balance the ganeshes of the world.

    • Vicky

      Funny how you refer to someone as illiterate and the use the word “blows” as your description. You sound like a hateful person who has too much time on his/her hands and gets off by bullying other people.

    Exhaustion? I know it’s hard being a celeb and having everything done for you…what a joke.

    Poor Demi. She loved that man. She has been going through a really difficult time with this breakup. She relied and depended on him in ways even she didn’t realize. It sucks readjusting a lifestyle when you could have been so happy in the old one. The fact that she couldn’t control what happened to destroy the life she loved isn’t an easy thing for her to cope with. Demi is Demi. She will recover. She will heal. She will return. Prayers for her.

  16. TerribleTim tune designating demise of Demi Moore.

  17. Demi is definitely feeling the effects of getting older, partying with young celebs, and staying slim, with her “own methods”
