Demi Moore

Rushed To Hospital

For Substance Abuse

1/25/2012 7:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Demi Moore
Demi Moore was rushed to the hospital Monday night ... and we're told the issue is substance abuse.

Law enforcement tells us a 911 call was placed at 10:45 PM Monday night. Paramedics responded to Demi's L.A. home and after assessing her for a half hour, she was transported to a local hospital.

Sources tell us she is being placed in a facility to "seek further professional assistance." Our sources say the treatment is for substance abuse.

Demi's rep tells TMZ, "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."

How quickly we forget! 25 years ago, Demi Moore was washed up. She was her then-boyfriend Emilio Estevez's leading lady, off-screen and on-screen, but almost sabotaged the poor guy's directorial debut (the ironically-titled "Wisdom") by failing to show up for shooting on many occasions (according to friends of mine who worked on that movie, her alcohol-cocaine addiction was no secret). Unable to find work in Hollywood (and understandably ditched by Emilio), 2 years later she desperately tried to revive her career by appearing in an obscure off-Broadway flop play (despite her nude scene). DeNiro saved her butt by insisting she be cast in his ill-fated remake of "We're No Angels", which she parlayed into the female lead in the surprise megahit "Ghost". Somehow she (or her agent) convinced the Hollywood moguls that it was she (and not Patrick Swayze & Whoopi Goldberg) who was responsible for that 1990 film's success, and went on to co-star in that decade's biggest hits (aided by her exhibitionist cover stories in Vanity Fair, and her marriage to the then-hot Bruce Willis). Thankfully, her $12-mil paycheck for exhibiting her silicone-enhanced hooters in "Striptease" was a disaster, and that seemed to send her back into *well-deserved" oblivion. Those who worked with her had already rebelled against her diva-like behavior and referred to her as "Gimme Moore"! Planning her next comeback, she managed to snag a handsome, talented, many-years-her-junior Ashton Kutcher who, luckily for him, managed to escape her domineering claws a few months ago. Regarding Demi's current hospitalization, gimme a break! Purely another publicity stunt to put her once again in the headlines, and a pathetic one at that!

People write she looks good for her age! You would too if you paid for all the plastic surgeries and breast implants. You can tell insecurities when a woman starts getting breast implants! Look at celebrities old photos even if they lie that they did not have work done , an old photo never lies!

Demi is a bonafide creeper! She went out with her daughter clubbing to feed her cougar fetish. She has slid down the slippery slope of drug addiction and lack of morals. Her behavior, looks and dignity are long gone.

I'll define the word for ya you hag...it's called REAL LIFE... living below the poverty level w/ 2 small kids to take care of & working 2 jobs just to survive & avoid 'shut off' notices...celebs have NO idea what exhaustion really is. I've had enough of these freaking celeb idiots who think their lives are so, so hard.
