The surprises just keep coming. While a recent report claims ‘The Lucky One’ star went to rehab for drugs, not once, but twice, HollywoodLife.com is now learning he also had a serious girlfriend during that rough time.
Zac Efron Had Support Of Secret Girlfriend
We didn’t even know that Zac had allegedly entered rehab, let alone that he had a drug abuse issue. Now, we’ve been told he’s always been a very private person.
“He’s had a serious girlfriend for a while now and he’s managed to keep that totally secret so I’m not surprised he was able to keep his trip to rehab secret for so long,” a source close to him told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
We were shocked to hear about Zac’s alleged drug problems, but how did he keep them all a secret?
He allegedly began using while on the set of Neighbors, in which he plays the president of a frat house. TMZ has reported that he missed days of shooting because of cocaine and Molly abuse.
Inside Zac’s Private Life
“Zac is really good at keeping it together, he’s a huge control freak and has always been obsessed with keeping his partying on the down low, this getting out is his worst nightmare,” the source told us. “He cares so much about keeping his private life private.”
However, it’s no longer private. On Sept. 19, TMZ reported that he didn’t only go to rehab once, but actually twice.
Another source revealed to us that the reason behind it all is actually his struggles in his career.
“The drug problem he has been dealing with is because his career hasn’t gone the way he had strived for and intended,” the source said. “He really wants to be the next Leo DiCaprio and he isn’t getting those roles.”
Back in April, we spoke to Zac who told us he was 100 percent focused on choosing roles that were right for him.
“It’s really about following your heart, and really going for projects that mean something to you,” he said at the At Any Price premiere.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you shocked that Zac had a girlfriend and was still so unhappy?
