Zac Efron

Rehab For

Big Coke Problem

Zac Efron
did NOT go to rehab for alcohol abuse -- it was far more serious, because multiple sources tell TMZ he had a serious cocaine addiction.

Zac completed his stint in rehab earlier this year.  We're told the problem spiraled out of control during the filming of Seth Rogen's movie "Neighbors," which was shot during a narrow time frame beginning in April.

Sources tell us Zac -- who also starred in the movie -- was a no-show on a number of days.  As one source connected with the film tells us, "It was common knowledge he was struggling with cocaine."

Three other sources confirm ... Zac's problem was rooted in cocaine, but say he also dabbled in Molly -- a pure form of Ecstasy, and a popular drug in clubs and raves.

We're told ... early this year, Zac and some friends went on a coke rager in a room at the SkyLofts at the MGM Grand in Vegas ... and caused around $50k in damage. No word on who took care of the bill.

We contacted Zac's rep ... she said, "Don't think we'll be making a comment."

Out of all those teeny bopper stars, he is one that I see really breaking away and having a long term, well respected acting career. I am glad he got help and hope he stays away from that garbage.

How come he was not arrested for the hotel damage. These kid stars are treated so favorably. The parents are to blame too. Some turn out OK like Ron Howard but most are messed up. Kids need to be kids and grow up with other kids not adults on a movie set or TV show.

WOW! I thought he was one of the "saner" Hollywood types! I'm very sorry to read this. Don't these people have ANY down to earth, sane people in their lives who are NOT in show biz and can make them realize how LUCKY they are to have the talent and good looks that they have. I guess moneyIS the root of all evil! Too bad for Zac. I hope he can overcome this problem so he does not become another Hollywood statistic who is found dead!

Zac Efron might end up dead like Corey Monteith if he doesn't get rid of his drug addiction.

This just in! Zac Efferon was just seen paying for something with a $100 bill. A common thing amongst coke heads for snorting.
