Yes, Demi Moore was rushed to the hospital last week, but multiple sources now report that the star's problems have been obvious to friends for a long time now.

According to the latest issue of Us Weekly, friends have been concerned for months over Moore's drug use and self-destructive behavior, most of which stemmed from Ashton Kucher's public affair with Sara Leal.

"She's been really down, and she's surrounding herself with young people to make her feel better," said an insider, adding that Demi has been intent on staying as thin as possible for years. "She's been mixing pills and Red Bulls, among other things."

It's been this desire to remain young, sources claim, that's led to Demi hanging out so often with daughter Rumer Willis... and which also allegedly led to an incident in L.A.'s Venice neighborhood a few weeks back when she set her sights on Zac Efron.

She "tracked down" the former High School Musical star at a shindig, supposedly, and "seemed out of her mind at this party," an onlooker says.

Efron, of course, is 24. He was two years old when Ghost came out.

Quick, prior to her recent breakdown, what did you know about Demi Moore? That she appeared in one of cinema's most iconic love scenes, married a younger man and was on great terms with her ex-husband, right?

That's not a lot of information, especially in this celebrity gossip culture, which is why one friend tells People magazine the actress is "embarrassed" by her hospitalization and subsequent 911 call release.

"Ego-wise, this is the worst thing that could happen to Demi, because she's such a private person," the source says.

Demi Moore for a Good Cause

However, Moore practices Kabbalah, a type of Jewish mysticism that is all about overcoming adversity. Her pal hopes this faith can lead to a major turnaround.

The star's downfall "can be an opportunity, a blessing, and not a curse," says the mole. "The right intervention happened in her life. From a spiritual sense, it is a gift. She has a real opportunity to grow from it. She has to take responsibility for her life."

Let's all hope she does exactly that.

The whole online world now knows that Demi Moore was "smoking something" last week, and the act resulted in a "semi-conscious" state that left at least one friend in a panic.

That's because the 911 call placed on behalf of the actress was released to the public, something that's permitted in our justice something and something which befalls most celebrities who end up in the hospital.

But George Clooney doesn't believe this should be the case.

"I think it's a stupid thing," the actor told The Insider. "I think it's stupid for anyone, whether they're celebrated or not, I don't believe their 911 call should be broadcast around the world, but that's my opinion. What's happening and what people have to remember is that people are getting famous from Facebook and Twitter, so it's not just about people here, it's about everybody. There won't be any version of privacy. So it's going to be a tricky thing."

It's a tricky subject indeed. Where do you stand on it? Should 911 calls be made public?

She's out of the hospital, that much we know. But based on the panic on one end of the recently-released 911 call, Demi Moore is far from out of the woods.

So where is the troubled star at the moment? An insider tells E! News Moore is NOT enrolled in a rehab program, but she has been undergoing some kind of "spiritual counseling," while, presumably, still living at home.

Daughters Tallulah and Rumer, meanwhile, are residing at their father's Los Angeles condo.

Rumer Willis and Demi Moore

Rumer, however, spent at least one fun night on the town this weekend.

Various sources report she ate dinner on Saturday with Annie Starke, Annie's mother Glenn Close and Close's husband David Shaw at Comme Ça in West Hollywood, before ending the evening at Chateau Marmont.

Willis has been in the news lately because she spent a lot of time with her mother prior to Demi's hospitalization last week, with evidence seeming to point to Rumer actually being present when the 911 call was placed.

Demi Moore was sent to the hospital earlier this week due to some kind of foreign substance inhalation. That's not in dispute.

But many are now asking just who was in the presence of this actress during the incident, specifically wondering: Was 23-year old daughter Rumer Willis actually there?!?

The chatter is based on the 911 call (below) placed on Demi's behalf, during which someone in Moore's party turns to someone else nearby and asks: "Hey, Ru. What's the name at the gate so that we can buzz them in from here?"

Willis often goes by this nickname, even using it for her Twitter handle, and other reports say she and her mother have been spending a lot of time together recently, including attendance at a party two weeks ago that featured a bizzare-behaving Moore.

Listen for the" Ru" reference now:

While Demi Moore works to overcome her recent personal problems, we have an update on her professional life:

Sarah Jessica Parker has signed on to replace Moore as Gloria Steinem in Lovelace, the upcoming biopic centered around the life of 1970s porn star Linda Lovelace. Demi dropped out of the film almost immediately after being hospitalized earlier this week.

Parker joins a cast that includes Amanda Seyfried in the title role, along Peter Sarsgaard, Adam Brody, Juno Temple and Wes Bentley.

Moore, meanwhile, is out of the hospital. Her next move is unknown, but the 911 call placed on her behalf was released to the public today.

The 911 call made by a friend on behalf of Demi Moore this week has been released.

In it, a panicked woman grows frustrated with operators at the outset because there's confusion over which department will be sending the ambulance.

This is an emergency, the caller insists, going on to say Moore "smoked something similar to incense" and adding that she's "having convulsions of some sort."

The friend also describes Demi as "semi-conscious" and, at one point, says she's been experiencing "issues lately with some other stuff." Portions of the call have been redacted for medical/privacy reasons, but take a listen now:

A new report states that Moore has been addicted to Red Bull for years, though clearly that energy drink isn't the blame for this incident.

The 911 call, instead, lends credence to the nitrous oxide theory.

Ashton Kutcher has only released one public statement since Demi Moore was hospitalized - and it was a Tweet that referenced "citizen journalists" - but a source close to the actor wants to make it clear:

He does care about his ex-wife.

"Ashton is deeply concerned for Demi," the insider tells People, adding he was simply in Brazil this week for work on an ad campaign. "He still cares about her and wants the best for her. But their marriage is ending and they are both moving on with their lives."

Ashton Kutcher in Los Angeles

Kutcher touched back down in Los Angeles yesterday and will return to the set of Two and a Half Men Monday.

Meanwhile, a new story in Great Britain's The Sun says Moore has been hooked on Red Bull for over a decade. She supposedly gets crates of the energy drink delivered to her house and has often replaced meals with multiple intakes of this beverage.

This actually jibes with another report earlier in the week, which cited a partying, flirtatious Moore from a couple weeks ago, clutching a Red Bull can during a night out.

With Demi Moore out of Sherman Oaks Hospital in Los Angeles, more information on what exactly landed her there in the first place may come out tomorrow.

The 911 call placed on behalf of the actress this week will be made available on Friday, but with a major catch: following a review by the  Los Angeles City Attorney's Office, numerous references from the call will be redacted because they refer to medical conditions and could violate privacy laws.

All we know at the moment is that a witness described Moore as appearing to suffer a "seizure" on Tuesday night and she was therefore transported to the hospital to seek "professional assistance."

The most reliable information so far states that Moore actually inhaled a dangerous amount of nitrous oxide, leading to an adverse reaction and a panicked call from a friend. What was the actress doing with a substance typically reserved for teenagers in their parents' basement?

We might never know the answer to that question.

Let's be honest: Ashton Kutcher is likely very concerned about Demi Moore.

The actor may have a wondering pecker, but his heart is not made out of coal. Kutcher and Moore were married for six years, after all.

But in light of his ex's hospitalization this week, Ashton has remained silent. He's spent the week in Brazil, attending a fashion show on Sunday in Sao Paulo, and didn't give TMZ a comment last night when approached by a camera outside a nightclub.

Kutcher, Ashton

But Kutcher - or his management team, we suppose - did oddly update his Twitter account this morning, linking to a story about journalists and bloggers that use "drone" cameras and writing:

Citizen journalists take to the sky.

Responded a follower to Ashton's Tweet: Surprised this is where your focus is right now.
