Zac Efron: Cocaine Habit to Blame for Rehab Stint

by at .  Updated at . Comments

In an unexpected turn of events, celebrity gossip followers learned this week that Zac Efron checked into a rehab facility in early 2013.

Now, in yet another shocked, TMZ reports that Efron did not seek professional help for a drinking problem; but rather that the actor has something in common with Lamar Odom:

He was hooked on cocaine.

Sources say Efron's drug use became a serious issue while filming the comedy Neighbors in April, as Zac often missed days of production and everyone on set was aware of the reason why.

"It was common knowledge he was struggling with cocaine," alleges this insider.

Multiple sources tell the site that Efron battled a cocaine addiction and also dabbled in the purest form of Ecstasy (aka Molly).

The actor and his friends even tore up a Las Vegas hotel room - to the tune of $50,000 in damages - a few months ago while on a cocaine binge, making it even more incredible that this habit was kept a secret for so long.

But Zac is reportedly on the road to recovery and we wish him well in the future.

Neither the actor nor his reps have commented publicly on any cocaine-related allegations.

I just think it's sad when the stars go into rehab their applauded for it but when regular people have a problem and go to rehab they're considered Outcasts or bad
people. Unfortunately alcoholism and addiction hit anybody from millionaires to street people but I am happy he got help.

That's right Lisa, people could have hung around with the wrong crowd sometimes, but, that would be entirely up to these people to say 'No'...I did and those people dropped me....Such a handsome man and thank God that he didn't lose his good looks from the cocaine, but, he may lose from drinking....

I'm very shocked that Zac was engaged in such things, but he is only human, he is not infallible. At least he entered rehab and his journey to recovery should be applauded.

Seems its hard to win in Hollywood. If you make it big you also have big money to feed the parasites that sell you expensive drugs. What makes these rich people think they are immune to addiction.

I think that it was implied that he wasn't...given that he did the correct thing by checking himself into rehab....genius.

why do we care about these good for nothing underserving millionaires. So many people have next to nothing and these celebrities have too much because almost none of them do anything good with their money except put it up their nose. Have a hard time caring about him at all.

Erase me all you like. You're still too transparent and an incredibly miserable individual....No wonder you have zero love life.....Tell me something, can you look yourself in the mirror and actually love and embrace what you see? Because something tells me you don't.
