UPDATE: Zac reportedly went to rehab for a cocaine addiction, not for alcohol, according to TMZ.

“He’s healthy, happy and not drinking. He’s taking time to focus on working,” a source shared to E! News about Zac.

Zac can be seen in the upcoming film Parkland, which he just promoted at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival.

He completed rehab 5 MONTHS AGO!! and I don’t think that the addiction to cocaine or alkohol is the reason why he and vanessa broken up (they split 3 YEARS AGO)

who would’ve known…
im really shocked but not to the point of denial. As a fan I will own up and say that I used to dismiss any comments about him taking drugs thinking they were absurd because he was a hard worker, but when you work hard sometimes you need a sense of …relief.

To those saying this could be why him and Vanessa broke up I highly doubt it because it was three years ago. However, there is no evidence to say that he wasn’t taking cocaine here and there whilst they were dating, which “may” have broken them up because it is a serious issue. Its weird because about a week ago Vanessa said in an interview that she would never go near that stuff and only used pretend cocaine in Spring Breakers and Frozen Ground. Strange timing.

All vanessa fan from her thread you go away. Just want to trouble. Leave Zac alone!

@Bea: “Leave Zac alone!”
lol nobody is hating on him though? i suppose now it gives ppl who disliked him a chance to dig at him, but i hear no vanessa fans up in here gurl. just ppl disappointed in him

as for zac, good that he didnt do it in the limelight. he needed this to humble him because i found after a while he got a little cocky in his tone which was unusual for him.

@magda: A substance addiction does NOT happen overnight, my dear. How long was Cory Monteith addicted? Many, many years. This probably started years ago, and finally got smart 5 months ago and got help. Maybe he started dabbling after the breakup when he started partying hard, and realized he had a problem. Either way, I see this could have been a problem for a while. You don’t do coke for a few months recreationally, and decide to do rehab.

@knew it
you dont know what happen between z and v’s relationship?
it could be other reasons also? but they are sure arn’t going to talk about it so why bring it up now 3 years later?

@lauren: Because a lot of things have become more clear, that’s all. This is why he’s ditched his friends, and gotten all private. I always said he’s hiding something, and NOW we know what. I’m not saying anything bad about him, so step back, Lipkin. This is all just speculation. Just like YOU do, with every blessed picture, tweet, and rumor. Chill.

just a small message to those who connect this issue to what happened to Cory Monteith, please just stop. you might not know how painful this sounds but his fans do. i’m positive that he has completely gotten over this issue and doesn’t have the potential to come back.
and PLEASE, stop using every single problem that faces Zac as the reason to why he and Vanessa broke up. they’ve dated for five years, if this cocaine addiction was actually happening during that time, then it would’ve been crystal clear by then. i hope i’m not sounding too defensive, but even if i was, it’s completely natural for me as a fan to act like that.
i find nothing disappointing in this story. i’ve grown so much respect for him because he decided to face his problems like a real man would do and he set a great example for everyone by doing this and keeping it hidden. at lot of celebs have been through the same thing and used it for publicity, but he didn’t. it shows how he really wants to make a better man of himself and i really admire that.

@knew it
Do you spend your time trying to figure out what happend? Don’t tell me to chill when your coming off as I know it all makes sense now when your thinking because of this this or this, no need to bring up the pass or get so pissy

Welcome to the world of fame and fortune at an early age. Next up Miley Cyrus who I’m sure knows more about “Molly” then just song lyrics.

Wish Zac well and hope he can stay clean and totally recover. He always seemed like a good guy.

well..well…WELL…

@Knew it: you do bring up good points. It is true @lIpkin, a cocaine addiction doesnt happen over night. i’ve known friends who have been taking cocaine for years though you wouldnt even suspect it because their lives appear normal and yeh they are only around 18. funny how you say why bring it up now when there are a list of reasons (publicity? remember the condom drop? the yolo tattoo?). Plus you have to remember that zacs team is amazing at what they do, so they only reveal what they need to. maybe they chose to reveal this now to increase his audience range due to his more masculine approach. that way his new movies will be noticed by all. u dont know how hollywood works. only on the surface. they can use this for sympathy as well. it sounds harsh but it happens all the time.

Um, actually cocaine addiction can happen overnight. It’s HIGHLY addictive and many can get hooked on the first go. So, yeah, ya’ll have no idea what you’re talking about. Try again.

I’m so proud of him! He’s got the talent to go far if he stays clean and sober.
<3 Zac

Zac has a cocaine problem? Donte aka @ kalamonde must put in the middle of Tom Welling because a friend of Zac, met during the filming of Parkland, dear Donte you’re really sick of hatred against Tom. Do not worry Tom is a super clean and honest man! Tom Welling should sue you for defamation. You have a very serious obsession Donte dear!!

It’s hard to believe that Zac had a coke addiction and he was able to keep it quiet. More likely, it was kept under wraps by someone with major clout. It does explain, however, that while making a major film a couple of years ago, his actions were rather bizarre as were those of a certain A-list co-star. This carried on to the Cannes release of the film where the questionable actions were put to a stop.

It will be funny when this will be NOT TRUE!

He looks coked out in the picture above.

@magda: i doubt it, they would’ve shot it down as soon as they heard it, his team is always on point like that.

@Jess: A body can not get truly “addicted” after one time. You need to try again.

@azalea: Oh, please. No one is belittling Saint Zac. Just saying he WAS hiding a problem. No reason we can’t speculate. Maybe coke became more important to Zac than Vanessa was, and she knew it. It happens, people. I’m gonna say it WAS a problem, and that’s my opinion. Everything is becoming clearer now. At least he faced his problem, and that’s the blessing for him. We can obviously see what happens to those who don’t see it soon enough. Like Cory. Nothing wrong with using a recent example of someone who didn’t get real soon enough. Zac did.

Donte = @ kalamonde needs to go to a rehabilitation center to detox from hatred and obsession! But Donte who smoke grass?

I only hope the best for him

so the national enquirer was going to release the cocaine story today and zac’s ppl beat them to it by leaking the “alcohol” story. does that mean the tabloids contacted zac’s pr and let them know they were going to run with this story? or do all pr find out ahead of time what stories are coming out?

coke head loser
