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."

Now if this had been somebody black, no one in here would b saying "praying for you" or " get better soon". It would ALL b negative. But don't worry. He'll b back on top. White people ALWAYS put people they like back in the system SOME KIND OF WAY! Look how it works for Lindsey. How it worked for Britney Spears. Etc.

Why on earth do people try drugs in the first place? There are better ways to deal with stress. We all have stress in our lives. Oh, and I definitely don't want to hear that it's peer pressure. Nobody should convince you that drugs are ok to take.

That is living the high live for you. In Hollywood there is a lot of pitfalls such as drugs, sex and etc. Drug dealers in expensive suits will try get you hook into one thing or another. Hope he pulls through.

I just read on Fox News that there's an app to block all Cyrus/Kardashian stuff on your computer called "No Cyrus" I tried it, (free) and it WORKS. They need to include "Jenner" in that list!!
