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.

@kami: So they can do damage control. Funny, he was so damn worried about his precious image all the time, when he should have been more concerned about the way he lived his life and who he spent time with. Mo Al Turki was probably not such a great influence, was he??

what a turnaround. his fans used to deny, deny, deny that he had this “bad habits.” look who’s talkin now?
it’s so sad but like his non-fans always said before – he has strayed!!!

@knew it
you need to chill out, you sound like person who knows everything and then treats everyone else dumb who doesn’t know right to wrong.

@lauren: Honey, YOU are the one thinks she knows everything. We’re allowed to say what WE think too. I don’t need to chill, sweetie. YOU do. This doesn’t bother me in the least. It’s ZAC’s issue, isn’t it?

@knew it
Yes it’s zacs issue but your the one brining up the past with his relationship with Vanessa and etc , there’s no need to keep bringing up the past when that’s been over that’s all I’m saying, at the end of th day no ones what happen with them so speculating over somthing we have no control over is pointless

@Knew it: Lmao this Lipkin girl is beyond delusional. She wishes she knows what’s going on behind closed doors but I dont think she can handle it coz Saint Zac y’all.

“He who is without sin cast the first stone!” We should not judge anyone! Ah ah Donte!!!

@Knew it:
You were right in most of your speculations. His drug problem (which started in 2009 in Vancouver) was a tiny part of the reason why they broke up. However, it was mostly because she cant take enough of his flirting & ‘cheating’ anymore with his costars. I mean, who hooks up with your co-star and passes it off as ‘rehearsal’ even tho there was a pic. What a scumbag. Oh and he’s one of those actors that considers sex scenes as ‘free cheating’.

@Penelope:

yep, i heard those things a long time ago. but i’ve heard stories of other actors who hook up with their costars and have full on relationships while they’re filming a movie. when the movie’s done the relationship is over. don’t know how they can live with themselves, especially the ones who have significant others (even married) and have kids. maybe that’s what drives them to drug addiction.

@penelope
i cant with you and how you apparently knew what happen between them and etc, also i know zac isn’t perfect so stop with this saint zac crap either. if you dont like zac or his life why are you wasting your time commenting and giving your opinion? no one knows what really happen between them and etc so leave it at that.

lauren901 @ 09/18/2013 at 4:46 pm

@penelope
amazes me how you apparently know what happen with there relationship, does it really matter any more? they arn’t together anymore so why bother brining up the past when it doesn’t matter?

@mary: What are you talking about? What substance are you abusing?

lauren901 @ 09/18/2013 at 4:47 pm

@penelope
i had no idea you were part of there relationship?

@mary: What are you talking about? What substance are you abusing/

@Michaela: You have the best post here . So I will post it again
“He who is without sin cast the first stone!” We should not judge anyone!
I commend Zac for addressing his problem and getting help on his own. Good for him. Wishing him all the Success professionally and personally in his future

So funny to see all the V fans on here freaking out and saying they were right. These two traveled in the same circle for five years, had the same beginning, and ultimately the same addictions. Zac sought treatment because his definitely spiraled out of control, and whether he sticks to it or not remains to be seen, but he’s not the only one messing around with cocaine. V is guilty of that and more (just like him), as are many that she runs around with. So rather than judging, be supportive, it could be just around the corner that you’re biggest inspiration seeks the same help.

What’s the point of analyzing if his addiction was the what made Zac and Vanessa break up? It could easily be something else.. We all have our opinions but don’t act like you know it all.. That’s so frustrating!
Second, to those who say that Zac may have been addicted from when he was with Vanessa… When someone is abusing there are always signs.. Always.. If you can’t always tell, Vanessa for example could’ve been easily addicted to a heavy drug too right? And those who say that you can’t always tell, don’t tell me that she isn’t because that would come in complete contrast with what you’ve said. Just to be clear I’m NOT saying she does because I don’t know for sure despite if I believe it or not.
Third, it doesn’t matter if he was addicted to alcohol or drugs because both of them cause damage and can literally destroy you…
Finally, whether you like him or not you should be glad that he seeked for help and admitted his problem.. At least be able to care about other humans.. I hope that no one of us or someone we love will ever face the same problems that he did.. No matter how insensitive some of you may be..

@Jessica S: That’s pretty low to make an assumption that she is involved with drugs, because she hung with his friends. There were never signs of her abusing substances, while there have been for Zac for quite awhile. Years, in fact. The issue is Zac having had a drug addiction. No need to get ugly.

It’s disgusting how judgemental some people can be. So cruel. He had been struggling with the addiction for years and finally started seeking help. Stop trashing him and wish him the best. Why are Vanessa fans still so mad at him? Don’t even pretend you know them.

@lauren901:
Lol stay pressed sistah. I can say whatever I want.
And he is Saint Zac. He cant do anything wrong.
It’s the same thing why his other relationships ended. He has wandering eyes, hands and lips.
‘What Vanessa sees wouldnt hurt her.” Tell that to him and ask if it sounds familiar.

This stint in rehab isnt the end of his drug abuse.

Vanessa did occasional weed but not as hardcore as he had. Did you see her face with an unexplainable bloat? I dont think so.

@Penelope
ok whatever you say, since apparently you know everything. amazes me how people like you seem to know every detail of what happen of there relationship and etc, yet you never say anything bad about vanessa at all, and hate on zac for years.

@lauren:
Maybe there’s nothing bad to say? You can take her at face value. What you see is what you get.
Zac tho….
Gurl, he doesnt really hide his bs. You just gotta take off your rose-tinted-glasses. And remember, his team is darn good.
