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."

To me I thought Zac was doing fine. But not everyone who becomes famous can handle all pressure. Hollywood, it can be a curse

How is it a problem? Maybe he's just got a good life? He seems to be doing alright? Maybe you all have a jealousy problem?

WTF is happening over at Disney?? Terrible terrible role models they are producing! And just looking at this photo of this kids eyes, tells me this story is true. But im sure I'll get the full scoop from my buddies at the number one magazine IN THE WORLD! The National Enquirer. And I have a great idea for their next cover story. "Disney stars where are they now"?

Lamar breathes a sigh of relief. TMZ has a new pet project to stalk, although I doubt they will stalk Zacquisha the way they stalk black celebs. What, no condescending language in this article? Oh TMZ why are yoou so transpararent. yes you Harvelia

Zaqc has to count his blessing in a lot of ways. One of them is that he had never met Michael Jackson while he was under 15. Otherwise he would have been invited to his bed (and of course molested)!!!
