“Reese started drinking to cope with the stress of her parents’ bitter battle in divorce court," an anonymous insider alleges.

One potential hiccup to this theory? Betty and John Witherspoon have been separated since 1996.

Still, there's a "vicious family feud between" the estranged couple that is supposedly consuming the Oscar winner these days and driving her to the bottle.

And the same must apparently be true of husband Jim Toth, as other insiders claim he may be headed to rehab.
