Demi Moore was rushed to hospital on Monday night. Now she is seeking professional help to deal with exhaustion and health issues. But later reports suggest the star was hospitalized over substance abuse issues.
Paramedics were called to the Hollywood star’s Los Angeles home and she was taken to a nearby medical facility for an “unknown illness” after being assessed for 30 minutes.
Demi’s representative says she is now seeking treatment to help her recover from exhaustion and other health issues caused by “the stresses in her life right now.”
The statement confirms that Demi remains positive, looking forward to getting well, and is grateful for the support shown to her.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Fire Department added,
“I can confirm that we received an emergency call at 10:49pm for an unknown illness related to that address. We transported at least one patient to a local hospital. The patient was transported at 11:21pm.”
But in the past, rumors surfaced that Demi Moore had been drinking heavily over the years. Could this be the real reason she was hospitalized and had to seek help now?
The actress has also reportedly pulled out of her upcoming role in a biopic of notorious porn star Linda Lovelace, in which she was set to play feminist Gloria Steinem.
This rush to hospital follows increasing concerns about Demi’s appearance and dramatic weight loss in the aftermath of her split from husband Ashton Kutcher. The couple announced their separation in November following weeks of reports that suggested the actor had been unfaithful.
The Ghost actress admitted in a interview with Harpers Bazaar magazine that friends had warned her she is too thin.
“I think I sit today in a place of greater acceptance of my body, and that includes not just my weight but all of the things that come with your changing body as you age to now experiencing my body as extremely thin – thin in a way that I never imagined somebody would be saying to me, ‘You’re too thin, and you don’t look good.’”
Hopefully now, Demi can be accepting of the help she needs to gets well.
