Oh no! We were shocked when we learned that Zac reportedly checked out of rehab for alcohol abuse five months ago, but it seems his problem could be even worse than we imagined. A source is now claiming that the ‘High School Musical’ star was allegedly in rehab for a serious cocaine addiction.
We told you that Zac Efron is reportedly “healthy, happy and not drinking” after a brief stint in rehab, but a new source claims that Zac did not go to rehab for alcohol abuse — he allegedly checked in for a cocaine addiction! To make matters worse, he was also reportedly experimenting with other serious drugs. Read on for more details.
Zac Efron On Drugs? — Rehab Stint For Alleged Cocaine Habit
Zac’s alleged struggle with drugs began while he was filming Seth Rogen‘s upcoming movie Neighbors, in which he plays the head of a fraternity house. The flick was shot in a short period of time beginning in April, and Zac, 25, reportedly missed several days of filming due to his alleged addiction, a source close to the film tells TMZ.
“It was common knowledge he was struggling with cocaine,” the source told the site.
Three other sources confirmed the claim to TMZ, adding that Zac had allegedly also been using Molly, a pure form of Ecstasy often taken at clubs and raves.
How awful! We hope these reports aren’t true, but if they are, Zac did the right thing by seeking professional help and kicking his addiction before it was too late.
