Zac Efron

Breaks Jaw in Bizarre 'Accident'

1112-zac-efron-tmzZac Efron broke his jaw.  His jaw is wired shut.  It supposedly happened when he slipped in a puddle of water at his home. That's Zac's story.

Zac has been in rehab twice this year for cocaine abuse.  He also had been dabbling in Molly.

In addition to the broken jaw, Zac apparently also suffered a big ol' gash that had to be closed with stitches.

Maybe it's true, but it's a very weird story ... slipping and breaking your jaw in a puddle of water.

We're told Zac -- who has been a hard partier for years -- has been struggling to stay clean.

This is clearly a story released by Publicists to cover up a plastic surgery procedure. I bet any day now there will new pictures showing Zac Efron with a stronger more masculine Chin and Jaw line just in time for the upcoming movie premiere. Hopefully this procedure will improve his self image and keep him off the drugs and out of stints in rehab. Nice PR released story but every LA local knows the real story, Plastic Surgery COVER-UP.

I broke my jaw my sophomore year in high school, jan 2006. I was doing nothing but standing still. I simply blacked out and fell chin first on the cement. Broke in 3 places, dislocated in 1, 4 fractured teeth, 2 exposed nerves and stitches in my chin. Wired fully shut for 1 1/2 months, partially for about a month and still suffering from pain. the docs never found out a reason why I passed out and they thought I had been abused or in a wreck. The injuries were horrible. It is weird but you CAN break your jaw easily. Slipping on water could have caused him to land just right to make it happen instead of drugs like some people think.
