IT IS NOT L.A. Metrolink station. It is Union Station. He was at the Metropolitan Transportation Authority because he rides around on the Red Line subway trains between Union Station and North Hollywood platforms to keep himself warm as he is destitute. He hops off the subway trains at the Highland and at the Vine platforms where he can easily buy junk on Hollywood Blvd. He is a very sick man and is going to die unless the Judge forces him on 24/7 monitor. Leif, we care .... don't let us down. Again.

Poor guy let drugs take him down a dark road of destruction and he has never recovered. He was such a beautiful young person with talent. He doesn't even remotely look like his old self. He was so attractive. The millions of dollars he made when he was young should have been enough to last him his whole lifetime. How sad!!

Fame was like a drug, but what was even more like a drug were the drugs.

Leif Garret was my teen idol, the one I read about in Tiger Beat and other pre-tabloid magazines from the late seventies. Today the equivalent would be Zac Efron, 2 years ago. I think he was so handsome and attractive and talented. I loved his long blonde hair the most. I feel so bad about this situation. People, this is a disease, and he needs treatment and understanding and compassion and support. I hope he knows he is still admired and valuable and he can get better and he doesn't have to live like this. I will pray for him-Leif-you deserve to get help-go get help today. It will get better. We want you back.

Leif, if you are reading this, get checked into a hospital!! Then make your 2nd call to Victory Outreach. They have churches and rehab ministries all over the US. Don't listen to the scoffers and mockers who don't care about anyone!! You are still young Leif; you are still handsome. Please Leif, I don't want to read that you died! So many people want to see you well!

This is so sad. I remember Leif from back in the day when he was a gorgeous teen who I had a major crush on. It's hard to believe it's all come down to this.
