Justin Chambers' Wild Night Out

Justin Chambers' Wild Night Out

Star Magazine has a pretty upsetting piece on Grey’s Anatony star Justin Chambers–and photographic evidence to justify at least some of their story.

The mag claims the father-of-five drifted in and out of consciousness (at the bar!), rambled incoherently, annoyed patrons and even hit on a waitress!

“He was acting as if he was on drugs, like some kind of downers. His eyes were glazed over. He slurred his words and staggered when he tried to walk,” the eyewitness said. “At one point, he was hunched over a table, then abruptly woke up and shouted out of the blue, ‘I am a father of five kids! I am a damn good father! Leave me alone!’ It was really unsettling.”

Read the full report on Justin‘s night out in Palm Springs at StarMagazine.com.

Justin, 37, checked into the Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA Medical Center late January for a “biological sleep disorder”.

    clinical insomnia (biological sleep disorder) is thouroughly dibliitating. as sufferers fail to enter REM, they can often end up going quite literally mad…… imagine not being able to sleep AT ALL!! not even with medication. if he does have this, well……. the end result is NEVER good, this is a truly horrific condition to end up with…

  • pipi

    sad.

  • http://yahoo Yes

    why is he doing this to his wife and kids!? Very Sad

  • lala

    scary, i wonder what in the hell he is taking-i hope he’s not taking the oxy contin, but all of them are sooo dangerous. he needs to go stop taking all of that stuff.

    Why is he doing this to his family ? Do you read? He has a sleeping disorder. It’s not as simple and non threating as it sounds. It can be very painful and disruptive to the person as well as the family. He’s not doing this on purpose and he’s getting help for it.

    As someone who has suffered from severe insomnia most of my life I can tell you that after a few days of not sleeping you begin to exhibit the strangest symptoms, from disorientation, hallucinations, to manic displays of anger and laughter. It’s almost like being bipolar, and closely resembles being on drugs. One of the guys in my sleep disorder group even tried to kill himself just because he needed the sleep. Also, the medications for severe insomnia aren’t always the best things for you. In the late 80′s early 90′s the common medication was Halcyon which actually caused people to have blackouts where they did things or ended up places and had no idea how. There are other meds out now that aren’t as severe but generally most people just stay awake until their body just shuts down from exhaustion. Unfortunately, one never knows when that could happen. I actually fell asleep in class once after 5 days awake and everyone thought I had gone into a coma as I couldn’t be woken up. I woke up 2 days later in the hospital. Stress can also exacerbate the condition and depending on your other symptoms you suffer from can truly drive you over the edge.
    If Justin is suffering from clinical insomnia then I seriously hope that he can get the help he needs before he really does go crazy.

  • kara

    eek, the first thing I thought was Heath Ledger. I hope it’s not Ambien, it messes with as many people as it helps.
    This is sad, I hope he gets it worked out soon.

  • amy

    WTF at the person asking why he’s doing this to his wife and kids. As if not sleeping is something he’s doing on purpose.

    I’m very disappoiinted in you Jared. Instead of posting some nice JC pics you post a link to a story and pics that some jerks took of Justin and sold to a trashy tabloid when he was clearly vulnerable and not himself likely due to some medication he’s taking to control his disorder (Ambien?).

  • natalie

    Hmm. I dunno if this is the sleeping disorder or whatever.. but dude needs help, and nd maybe he should stay home if he’s this out of it, so something like this doesnt happen again.

    Hey, just wondering, what does that feel like? Do you feel exhausted, but you just can’t seem to sleep? Or do you have energy………..? I mean, how do you even get through the day when you can’t get ANY sleep? After a while, doesn’t the body just shut itself down of exhaustion?

    I’m sorry about all the questions. Just curious. :)

  • yeah right

    Okay fine, he has a “sleeping disorder” HTF does that explain hitting on someone NOT YOUR wife, Being at a bar when he’s got 1 wife and 5 kids at home. Sounds a little convenient to me.

  • Lilyanne

    #14 Natalie

    You have that right. The “paps” are only too happy to catch a you at your lowest. He needs help not a photo session.

  • lady t

    I hope that he and his family can get through this rough patch with some privacy and dignity…

  • ugh

    Forget that he’s handsome, used to model and takes the family to church on Sunday. To display this type of behavior with a wife and 5 kids at home, he must be somewhat of a loser or have a serious problem. Poor family. This is so embarrassing.

  • Sam

    The ‘sleep disorder’ is merely a cover story.

    His wife has been photographed at Al-Anon – a support group for people affected by someone else’s alcohol addiction.

    No need to guess who the ‘someone else’ is here.

  • rj

    People are so naive to buy the sleeping disorder excuse. They’re probably the same people who believe Heath Ledger only took drugs to sleep. Justin is sleeping in a chair at a bar! Doesn’t seem like he is much of an insomniac to me. He is most likely an alcoholic or on drugs.

  • http://kwanzoo.com oakling

    Even if he has a sleeping disorder and *no other problems*, what’s he doing going out? And why didn’t he get treatment before this? I think that’s a good justification for the “why is he doing this to his family” line of thinking – he has the money and the resources to get treatment for this stuff way before he’s at the waitress-beating stage.

  • mary

    go to rehab!

  • CJ

    @ Sam

    Umm… do you lack reading skills? The Star magazine article says the “waitress” didn’t serve him any alcohol. He’s not drunk or an alcoholic.

    He looks like he took some sleeping pill before going to that bar and then the pill kicked in while he was there which is why he’s basically sleeping in all the pics and looks so out of it. Sleeping disorders are very serious folks. they can completely f*** you up. At least, Justin was humble enough to get some medical help for his condition instead of doing a crapload of pills like Heath. Look at where Heath ended up.

  • Meme

    OK, I get all about the insomia and all but then what the hell was he doing up there in a bar uh?.
    And I can’t believe he’s taking this road.

  • Rae

    Whatever is wrong with him, this is really sad. I hope he gets help. The ‘I’m a good father, leave me alone!’ is a weird thing to say though.

  • Kay

    Wake up, people! It is called ADDICTION! Sleep disorder is a SPIN. Heath Ledger was crawling out of his skin in interviews, his publicists had to come up with something so they had him mention sleep problems and medications to avert negative press. All of you sympathizers are ENABLERS! Do you know what happens when you ENABLE? Look at Heath…

  • irina

    look what is in front of him, glass of water. I think they snap tons of pic of him and chose the ones that makes him look like he is drunk. if you dont pose for pic they can come out like that. and he probably took a photo with a fan, maybe even on cell phone, he is kind of looking up. it is not like he is kissing someone. i think star is the most evil magazine and could ruine this man’s life and his family.

  • Alison

    Oh dear…….

  • CJ

    @ Kay

    Did you see the autopsy report on Heath? He had anti-anxiety meds, sleeping medication in his system and a few other things which is conducent to someone having a sleeping disorder. You obviously don’t know crap about the issue or you would know how serious a sleeping disorder is and how much it affects you physically and mentally. Taking sleeping meds like Ambien may help you sleep but they also have other side-effects and they take a toll on a person.

    I still haven’t seen any proof that Justin’s problem is anything other than a sleeping disorder. If anything, all these reports are just proving he has serious sleep issues. I find it sad that people like you have absolutely no sympathy for someone who is obviously going through a rough time. Justin was humble enough to know he couldn’t get better on his own so he sought out medical help. Maybe if Heath had done the same he would still be among us. It’s people like you who accuse without knowing that many celebs avoid getting medical/professional help when they have a problem. So yes, I do sympathize with Justin because he had a problem and got help for it. Supporting isn’t enabling. It’s telling and showing someone that you’re happy that they are working on getting better. I’d rather support Justin (and other people that have problems) than have your negative and accusatory attitude. YOU are the reason why many people, specifically celebs who are in the spotlight, don’t get the help they need. So you’re the one who should wake up.

  • elle

    maybe if people werent so nosey we wouldnt be judging someones life so closely!

  • Kimmy

    That’s so sad:(

  • lily

    But Alchol does not help if he has an alleged “sleeping” disorder.
    More disturbing is the pic with the whore next to him. I hope Keisha and the kids don’t bite the dust.

    he needs to go to REHAB or the PSCH WARD, whichever one would help

  • lily

    No disprespect to the dead (Heath) but i don’t think he sought “help” for his condition, right?

    Also, even if the “reports” said he had prescription pills to treat his “sleeping disorder” it doesn;t mean he didn’t abuse the drugs and have an addiction and hence “accidentally overdose”. There are many people who are addicted to prescription pills.

    With this dude, if he checked himself in to be “treated” , then he wouldn’t be in this ill condition still .

    And blurting out that he is a good dad etc? well that may be an indication that those around him are queestioning his abilities etc.

    I wish the guy and his family well. I hope Keisha sticks by him a bit longer and help hm on the road to recovery. I hope the kids are fine and are not being affected by this.

    R.I.P Heath

  • not good

    Whether he has a sleeping disorder or not, he needs to trash the alcohol and the cigarettes from his system completely and take care of his body.

    Why can’t he sleep? Is there something physically wrong such as chronic pain that keeps him awake?

    Does he think too much, have a racing mind or have a bipolar condition? Either way, he needs professional help. If it’s physical, how could he last all these years without good sleep? A person can go insane.

    I think it’s psychological and that he could have been a drug addict or alcoholic years ago and is now slipping back to his old ways since he’s become more famous.

  • Nikki

    Leave him the h.e.l.l. alone. omg do you people really believe everything the tabloids report??

  • Gloria

    For all of you that are bad mouthing JC, just stop it. The man has an illness. What is wrong with you people.???? He is going thru a ruff time. He needs our prayers and kindness in this nightmare he is living in. If any of you had this illness or any type of illness how would you like it if people talked about you like that.
    I’d like to see some of youafter you have not been able to sleep for a week or more.
    And last but not less it is NOT embarassing, it’s heartbreaking.
