Zac Efron

Friends Believe He's Into Drugs, Not Sushi

3/28/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Zac Efron
's friends are "worried sick" about the actor ... and none of them believe Zac drove to downtown L.A. in the middle of the night to get sushi -- they say there's no doubt he's fallen off the wagon again.

TMZ broke the story ... Zac ended up in an area of downtown L.A. that turns dangerous late at night, with transients and drug dealers out in force.  Zac told cops his car ran out of gas, his "bodyguard" got attacked and when he went to help he got socked in the face.

Cops are skeptical, and it's echoed by Zac's friends.  As one friend put it, "Zac's a loner.  He goes out rarely and the idea of him driving for miles to go to some sushi restaurant in downtown L.A. after midnight is preposterous."

Several of Zac's friends tell us the so-called bodyguard is not a bodyguard at all.  We've confirmed he's a convicted drug dealer who has been spending a lot of time with Zac recently ... despite warnings from friends.

There were a number of reports Zac went to rehab twice last year to kick his cocaine habit.  But sources now tell us ... Zac NEVER went to rehab.  Both times he went to a friend's house outside California and received private therapy --- but that's it.

Zac has lost friends in the last few months because they became frustrated that he was slipping off the rails again.

By the way ... on Thursday we reported what the "bodyguard" told us ... that he was viciously stabbed in the face, chest and stomach by transients.  Law enforcement sources tell us ... when they arrived at the scene the only one bleeding was Zac.  The "bodyguard" was just sitting there texting away.

Is that coke bloat? I only ask, because he normally has quite a strong jaw line.

This will be ongoing because soon it's gonna be all about that Seth rogan comedy he's in. Work & promotion his agent and of team will keep in clean in the public eye for a few months but whenever he's on a hiatus in between movies that's where disgusting druggie habits will occur. He's pretty pathetic to be lying about rehab. Never found him hot anyway always thought was some kinda baggage with him.

Oh ya, maybe Demi will sponsor him now, she got off the crystal crack right? Now he gets to join the sick aa community and get exploited. Say no zac. just say no. you don't need no stinking 12 step program, bull**** spirituality, full of other drug addicts!! Right, that's what he needs, to go to treatment and meet other addicts, they'll show him the ropes and let exploit him to DEATH!!

Going through the first stages of recovery are hard enough (and we are aware of his efforts due to being in rehab and outpatient care), and having to do so with everyone watching for you to mess up must just be hell!! If his "friends" cared, they wouldn't be blabbing to TMZ. And, no, I don't see anyone truly finding perserverance "through their fans". They don't know him and he doesn't know them. It's time to quit overreporting his current failures along his recovery process.
