Demi Moore’s rep announced the actress is seeking treatment for “exhaustion” — but she’s actually in rehab for an eating disorder and substance-abuse issues, E! reports.
The “G.I. Jane” star is said to be ensconced at the posh Cirque Lodge facility in Utah, which has housed celebs such as Lindsay Lohan (and look how well that worked out).
“She’s on total lockdown and only talking to a small group of people,” an insider reportedly confided.
Demi is said to have checked in the week after she was hospitalized for allegedly suffering a seizure. That episode was caused by her smoking “an incenselike substance,” per a friend who called 911.
“Everyone thought she was going to die,” a source relayed to Us magazine. “It was terrifying.”
The tabloid claims the star’s substance abuse was a factor in the demise of her marriage to Ashton Kutcher and worsened after their separation.
“Demi’s life is in complete crisis. She has spiraled since her split from Ashton,” an Us source said. “She is turning 50 in November and has no idea who she is or what her life should be.”
“She knows she’s in a bad place and needs help,” a source said. “Rehab is the only thing she can do right now. She needed something serious to get her back on track.”
But don’t expect Ashton to devote much time and energy to nursing his estranged wife back to health.
“He just wants to move on,” a pal of the actor told Us. “He cares about Demi and would help if asked, but he’s not part of her life anymore.”
Well, that seems kinda cold … but then again, it might not be healthy for Demi to lean on her ex right now. No doubt she needs to learn to stand on her own.
Creepy alert! According to a new tabloid report, Russell Brand is looking to hook up with actress Zooey Deschanel … who, it has long been remarked, uncannily resembles his estranged wife, Katy Perry.
“Russell has had his eye on Zooey for a long time,” a source reportedly dished to OK! magazine. “And he’s been sending funny, flirty texts to see if they can get together.
“He thinks she’s hysterically funny and cute, too,” says the insider. “He loves her quirky sense of humor and thinks they’d be great together both on- and off-screen. There’s a real spark there.”
The “New Girl” star filed for divorce from rocker Ben Gibbard in December — only three days before Russell filed paperwork to divorce Katy.
Zooey may be inclined to resist Russell’s advances, though, since “she’s heard about his reputation as a womanizer, and isn’t sure whether she’s ready to rush into another relationship so quickly.” Plus, she’s “very aware that she looks strikingly similar to Katy and has been mistaken for Katy by fans.”
Well, some guys have a type!
This is terrible news!
When Heidi Klum and Seal were both spotted still wearing their wedding bands, it gave us hope the separated spouses might yet reconcile. But a source declares to Us that, “They have zero plans to get back together.”
OK, well, how do we know this source is reliable, huh? Huh? We’ll continue holding out hope, thank you very much!
