Demi Moore's Shocking Hospitalization Raises More Divorce Questions


Demi Moore Tragic news is being reported about Demi Moore. According to TMZ, the actress was rushed to the hospital late last night for an incident related to substance abuse.

"A source" told the site that she is currently seeking further "professional assistance" for substance abuse issues. Her rep confirmed that she is seeking treatment and issued a statement that read:

Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health.  She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends.

No matter what the reason, it's terribly sad and clear evidence that her troubles did not end with her divorce from Ashton Kutcher. Of course it also raises plenty of questions. Namely, which came first, the substance abuse issues or the divorce? And, did one contribute to the other?

Whether it was prescription drugs or something else, her severe weight loss leading up to the divorce certainly would support a theory that there was a problem of some sort before the divorce. In a worst case scenario, one might wonder if her despair had just gotten too great for her to handle.

Of course, we also have to consider that substance abuse isn't an issue, since it was "a source" that provided that information. Though it seems unlikely and typically doesn't turn out to be the case, perhaps she is just exhausted, as her rep stated.

Regardless of why she is seeking treatment, I have to wonder where Ashton is in all of this. Has he rushed to her side, or is the animosity between them too great for him to even be there  for her at this difficult time?  And the most heartbreaking question of all: How are her daughters holding up? They have been through so much already with the divorce, I can't imagine how difficult this is on top of all of that for them.

For now all we have are questions. Whether answers will be forthcoming or not is unknown. The only thing that is certain is that we wish her well and hope that whatever issues she has sought treatment for are soon addressed and she can move on past all of this grief.

Are you surprised to learn that Demi Moore is seeking treatment?

Oh, good God, really? You just had to rush out and write a story quoting "a source." First of all, it's nobody's business why she is receiving treatment. Just because she is a celebrity doesn't mean that we should be privy to all the details in her life. Secondly, the anonymous source is almost always some loser trying to make him/herself fell important by spreading half-truths and outright falsehoods about people that they are jealous of.

Personally, my hope is that Demi is able to recover quickly, whatever the issue may be. And that she holds her head up and ignores the catty little bitches who just love to talk shit.

I enjoy all celebrity gossip. However, I would not at all consider this "tragic news".

It almost seems as if the writer feels that "fans" enjoy and are entitled to an answer. What f-in' good does it do me and my life to know what came first in the womans life? I wish her well but that is as far as it goes. Some people really need to get a life for this to be the burning question that it is for some...I say GET A LIFE.

I have a question since I haven't really followed their break-up (I honestly thought they split up years ago)...

Now, am I imagining things or did I read somewhere several months back that the split was because of her substance abuse issues?? That's all I recall and then it seemed like every article was making Demi into the victim and Ashton into the villain.

She looks "drunkorexic".

She's probably been on coke or something and that's why she's been getting so much skinnier lately...booze makes you gain weight but stimulants do the opposite.

I got bashed a few weeks ago for suggesting she was too thin, comment

she's not the first one and not the last one. If she doesn't know how to eat right, then she should be supported.
