Zac Efron Really Completed Two Rehab Stints: Report

Zac Efron Really Completed Two Rehab Stints: Report

Zac Efron reportedly completed two separate stints in rehab earlier this year, according to TMZ.

The 25-year-old actor entered a private residence in March to receive intensive outpatient care for several weeks to try and clean himself up after allegedly doing cocaine for more than two years.

Zac then relapsed in April while shooting the movie Neighbors, according to the report. After filming on the movie wrapped he got outpatient care for the second time.

There are allegedly several reasons that Zac started using coke: issues with his parents who are “still trying to control his life and decision-making,” being upset with his movie career, “girl issues” although nothing to do with Vanessa Hudgens, and being surrounded by a “bad group of friends.”

We’re glad that Zac received help and hope that he is doing well!

YAAAS HONEY!!! @ 09/19/2013 at 4:21 am

You left out a reason. Being in the closet.

# 2

Who keeps leaking this information, one of his stupid friends. He was just starting to build some credibility, and now he’s going the Lohan route. Girl trouble..what a load of b******. An addict is an addict, with exact same problems as everybody else. Good luck Zac you’re really gonna need it now.

# 3

What does ‘girl issues’ mean? If zac was gay I hope he would just come out if not coming out was ******** him up this much; coke should never be an option

I’m starting to feel like everyone is in the closet. lol. What the hell is going on in the world. Zac Efron goes tooooooo REHAB! Publicity stunt or cry for help? You don’t know anyones personal life, but for real zac it could be worse? Focus on the positive!

THIS IS A BIG LIE!!!! WHERE DID YOU GET THIS???? HE WAS BUSY WITH FILMING HIS MOVIES “THAT AWKWARD MOMENT” “PARKLAND” AND “NEIGHBORS” ……. HOW STUPID IS THAT?????

# 6

@gerd why he shoul go on Lohan route? How many addicts there are in Hollywood? How many of them have a trash life? Many and for most of them the truth never came out but they keep on working. There are actors who got bad reputation when they were young (addictions, jail) and they’re still working and they’re A list stars (e.g. Robert D. Jr, Whalberg). If Zac tries to focus on work and has talent he will continue his career regardless what he does or what he did in his private life. If he makes bad choices choosing movies or he proves to not have any talent he won’t work or people will only think he’s just like Lohan or like other former ‘gone bad route’ celebrities.

# 7

Zac didn’t take the ‘Lohan route’ because if he did, he would already be charged for DUI or something like that. He wasn’t, which means he had a motivation to become clean.
It just kind of hit me and I immediately thought about Cory. So sad, I hope it doesn’t end this way…

Funniest part about recent Zac posts is watching the idiot hudgens die hards migrate over to rub in zacs problems, or bring up Vanessa’s name repeatedly, like how she ‘dumped zac’, or how she is squeaky clean and never has done drugs herself, etc. They will do anything to give her more milage around this website. Hope he stays clean. The past is the past. Move forward with new resolve.

Nightwish @ 09/19/2013 at 5:27 am

@Correction: All that attentionwhoring on her part probably got him started. Maybe he got so down and depressed and started coke-ing out, just to pick himself up again lulz

Correction @ 09/19/2013 at 5:33 am

@Nightwish:

EVERYONE would need drugs to endure spending time with dumb b***ch Vanessa.

shaper than Sharp @ 09/19/2013 at 5:36 am

you really cannot be too smart to even start snorting the coke like it will ever lead to anything good lol he probably thought it would make him legit and whole fool !

@Nightwish: correction, how about the other way around, actually issues started early for him, and not vanessa related I see, plus if you are intelligent, you wouldn’t get too involved or just involved, stop trying to look others bad, his parents worried for him, but he cut them out of his life for a while too

smells like crap. i mean girl problems? sounds like a teen drama not someones life. this report either came out of jareds a$$ or tmz’s because im not buying. i do believe that he was really depressed tho but the other problems sound ridiculous

i just want to hear what zac has to say about all this. it doesnt seem to add up but if he says its true then so be it.

oh god the fact that jared added it had nothing to do with vanessa, makes me think she had involvement in it. drugs effect people in different ways. there are obvious cokeheads and there are the ones who look completely normal and i think thats what happened with zac and vanessa. on the last post i wrote a lot about him and her u guys should read it, i mean there are two sides to every story.

@Nightwish: im here supporting zac so if ur just hating then leave and go support hudgens elsewhere.

Nightwish @ 09/19/2013 at 6:03 am

@Maika: im certainly not trying to belittle Zac or his problems because hes making the effort to change. If i feel like poking fun at Hudgens, good luck trying to stop me. Go rally your friends. Way to go EFRON!

Bad group of friends, like Tom Welling, Tim Newfang, Alix William, Ryan Rottman and Tanner Beard!

Its so strange… i will believe you until it is confirmed Zac. Waiting for you in Spain!!!

@Nightwish: feel like poking fun at hudgens? puh lease. ur always on her posts commenting 24/7. ur just posing as a zac fan so i suggest u leave because we dont want u here. zac is clearly having a hard time so dont take the piss.

I KNEW IT THAT IT’S NOT CORPORATING WITH VANESSA… GLAD THAT IS NOT THE REASON OF THEIR BROKE UP!

@Nightwish: Bros before holes!

Nightwish @ 09/19/2013 at 6:17 am

@hannah: I am all for Efron, sweetheart. Whats the friggin problemo?

Relapses happen sometimes, but it doesn’t mean he can’t stay clean the second time around. I wish all the best to Zac in his recovery and in his future career.

Nightwish @ 09/19/2013 at 6:26 am

@Maika: Right, so Zac was involved with drugs before HSM came along. Wow, he started early. So through his relationship with pudgens, he was using and apparently didnt give Van a second thought, whether she urged him to stop or was casually using along the way herself. Either way, Hudgens was an insignificant part of his life because he prioritized partying before her. Can you blame him? Choosing between a plethora of hot chicks or ball and chain Hudgens? That was a no brainer LOL

Danny or @ kalamonde, but then you’re really obsessed with Tom Welling! Tom and Zac met during the filming of Parkland (will be in theaters October 4), and the article talks about his cocaine addiction was 2 years ago so do not say LIES! Friends help you not indulge in need. mary is right Kalamonde’re really sick, you are a PUBLIC DANGER!!!

MeUnderwears ThatsLife @ 09/19/2013 at 6:36 am

@YAAAS HONEY!!!: Grow up! He isn’t gay and he will never be gay. I am tired of people like you who always says he is gay. He is STRAIGHT. Jesus Christ it’s 2013 and there’s still no proof about it. Grow up! The most you wish he is gay the less he will be.
_______________

Praying for Zac to stay clean and healthy. If something happens to him , I couldn’t bare it .

Nightwish @ 09/19/2013 at 6:38 am

WTF Jared! Both Zac and Pudgens have been broken up for long long now, but you HAD to bring her name up in this post! You are such a sorry ass pimp for her, i swear.

It will be funny when all the thing come FALSE/UNTRUE

crrlmoore @ 09/19/2013 at 6:39 am

@Danae: Those were my thoughts too when I first heard about this. I’ve been a fan of his for years and I’ve always known he wasn’t as squeaky clean as he tried to portray but I NEVER expected this. I hope he gets the help he needs.

Nightwish @ 09/19/2013 at 6:45 am

..”several reasons he started doing coke”..including..”girl issues, although nothing to do with vanessa hudgens” <<< insert desperate Vanessa Hudgens tie-in and defense comment, like LOL Jared

@nightwish
Wow is there really any low you won’t sink too to take pot shots at Vanessa. The guy has problems there’s nothing funny about it and for you to take advantage of it in your continuous vendetta against Vanessa is sick.

Nightwish @ 09/19/2013 at 6:54 am

@Jr:You are stalking me on a Zac Efron post, and im the one who is sick?

Nightwish @ 09/19/2013 at 6:58 am

@Jr: I dont see your precious Vanessa tweeting her support for him during this very trying time. Guess they had a bad falling out. Man, i wonder how it really went down, the breakup and all.

@nightwish
I’ve been reading posts of this story ever since the story broke a few days ago. I read the other post too just didn’t say anything. It’s been interesting right until u popped your snake head out of the ground and started using it again for your own vendetta.

So, I am a Vanessa fan, and see you’ve been bombarded with our Nightmare. Sorry. He’s a psychotic hater, and we can’t get rid of him. But I just want to say, I don’t believe Zac would EVER throw his parents under the bus like that. EVER. I can believe it started after his break-up w/ Vanessa. He may have been depressed, a bit lonely (as all people are after a breakup) and he was spending a LOT of time with those friends. It just happened. I am happy he addressed his problem. Maybe he should just start living his life, enjoy his career, and stop caring about what others think of him so much. It’s just not healthy, and these are the things that can happen.

I hate to tell Zac this, but parents will still try to control their child’s life and decision-making until he/or she dies, lol. 99% of the time it’s because they love their child and want the best for them.

That said this recent revelation is a little suspect. The initial story was reported by People, a reputable source. Not that TMZ is wrong, but their credibility isn’t the same as People’s.

Nightwish @ 09/19/2013 at 7:10 am

@maria: Actually, the story i heard was he breathed a huge sigh of relief after dumping Vanessa. Heard he doesnt like being with a manipulative and controlling chick. Also, he knew his potential would far outpace Hudgens, that it would create problems so he cut ties early. I think he’s a smart guy.

@nightwish
I don’t see any of zacs co stars tweeting their support I guess they all hate him. Or maybe you’re just reaching for excuses to spread hate.

All this drama, just come out of the closet, until he does, rehab is going to be a recurring trip for him.
Who did he think he was fooling bulking up and posing with his shirt off, nessa most likely dump him, because he could not get it up for *****.
She is a young women and peaking sexually, not into rubbing noses, with a mama’s boy.

Nightwish @ 09/19/2013 at 7:41 am

@Gun: That is a crock of crap, a rumor perpetuated by gays who want to claim him and Hudgens fans, who cant stomach the idea that he had no problems leaving her. He patronizes the gay community because they love him. Its a business, and he wants to retain fans. He got it up for hundreds of hotter chicks than Hudgens, thats for sure. Not to mention staying with Hudgens would have strangled his career path. She really is not as big of a star as he is. Lets face it.

Donte = @ kalamonde let it be Tom Welling! you should address your interest in Kristin Kreuk and her “friend” Sima, have a very special friendship so much that kristin left the fake boyfriend. Do not throw poison on the “poor” Zac!

@Nightwish if you would have done your “homework” instead of sounding like an idiot and jumping to conclusions you would have seen that Jared is paraphrasing what TMZ put on their website; so Vanessa being brought up is not by the hands of Jared, but the “so-called” sources that TMZ “supposedly” has.
I’m skeptical of the “reasons’ behind him using, but regardless of the reasons, I’m happy for him that he was able to seek help. I wish him all the success in the world and will continue to support him as I’ve always done.

Well this is interesting. Everything’s finally coming out in the open.
He first snorted cocaine in Vancouver while at a party for CStC. That I could tell. Bbv tried to intervene but oh he’s Mr. Hotshot so.
He cut-out his ties with his family since late last year altho his dad still visits him but they arent as close like before.
Idk about that ‘girl issues’ but his friends mainly had to do with his addiction.

@hyde
Uh how do you know this?
Funny how all these people on here or in general come out of the wood work and say oh I know this , this and this on zac? Didnt realize so many people were in zacs life like that,

Closeted, short, no talent. Guess I’d do it too.

@Donte: I agree. These are the same guys that Liam Hemsworth hangs out with. Add Phil Haus, Ramsey Krull, and Paul Khoury to the list too.
Go to Phil Haus’ instagram or Facebook and you’ll see pictures of them. There s even one with Miley (with short hair) in it.

This whole thing has come as a big surprise. I’m a big fan and will still continue to support him. Drug/alcohol are serious addictions and I’m glad he got help. I hope he stays clean. It’s good that his parents have played an active part through this and he has his family besides him.
Good luck sweetie. Hope he’ll be fine.

BTW his team managed to keep this a secret for 5 months and now who are these people leaking all this stuff?

And this report seems fake. I think his bad friends mainly had everything to do with it. How do TMZ’s sources bring Vanessa into this? Seems fake.
I hope he stays clean and leave all these bad friends he supposedly had.
He surely looked great at TIFF. He was glowing!

@Nightwish:
As far as everyone knows (at least the non delusional fans) Efron started using coke during CSC / The Lucky One in NOLA. He went to visit Vanessa in Hawaii at least 3/4 times, and she went to visit him on set for his birthday… and thats when everything started (there were so many rumors about Zac cheating on V with his costar -she was engaged when she was filming TLO and after the movie wrapped his fiance dumped her, sightings of Zac drinking alone…).
Before his meltdown, Zac was always with the same group of friends, it was normal to read tweets or sightings like “I just saw Zac and Vanessa skating” they were barely spotted at nightclubs, just like Vanessa right now, out on Malibu, watching movies at the Hcementery, going to church, out with her family.
When they broke up, Vanessa only maintain contact with a couple of Zac´s friends. Funny huh? She still has contact with Chris and Bubba (Zac´s childhood friends) but she has completely erased from her life to all the other ones (the ones who introduce Zac to drugs… like the pheed guys aka lindsay lohan /Miley Cyrus´ friends aka Zac best friends the last two years)
So, as you said he could have been with “hotter chicks than Hudgens” but Vanessa never said ANYTHING about their relationship, he was the one saying he loved her, “she keeps me grounded” “it was love at first sight”. He was right, at the end of the day he is the coke head not Vanessa.
And Vanessa is getting really good reviews, she is working hard and getting the praise. While Zac was showing up late on set, doing threesomes with prostitutes, doing cocaine with his friends, asking for drugs at SXSW, Vanessa was working, spending time with her friends and family. They are pretty different.

Would have been better if this hadn’t out. It’s his personal problem, he dealt with it. Who the heck are these sources leaking info to TMZ?

Lastly, hugs for him. Hope he stays clean and sorts out whatever issues led to this addiction. The change has been showing lately. Just look up the TIFF pictures.

*this hadn’t come out

@Lauren:
Do you realize the only ones who didn’t know about his addictions were HIS FANS? Everyone knew he had problems,i remember reading a couple of Vanessa´s fans talking about this last year or even talking about how a “douchebag” he was when he fired Gina (and she was trying to help him).
All of you Zac´s fans where obssesed trying to talk **** about Vanessa and how she was always spotted out and about (calling her famewhore or even being disrespectful to her relationship with Austin) meanwhile Zac was SO PRIVATE BECAUSE HE LOVE HIS LIFE, HIS WORK AND HIS FANS, now everyone know why he was so private. And i remember when a couple of Vanessa´s fans told you “Vanessa doesnt has anything to hide” now you know what they were talking about.

@BOB:
Jesus. Calm down. You seem overjoyed at someone’s struggles. Stop hating.
Are you seriously saying Zac should’ve been doing drugs in public? Everyone is applauding him for not having a public meltdown and taking care of his problems in private. Can’t believe you’re hating on him for keeping his personal issues from the public.

@bob
Um I always felt like he has issues and etc. not all of his fans are dumb,
You need to chill out

It’s sad Zac is going through this when his career is finally taking off. Stay strong, Zac. You have THAT AWKWARD MOMENT, which is the first movie from your production company, and NEIGHBORS, which is expected to be one of your biggest hits. Please stay sober and healthy. Your time will come soon.

@flyhigh:
Im talking about his fans, good for him for going to rehab, he relapsed once and i’m sure he is going to relapse again. but his fans are hilarious, they are always bitching at every other celeb, like Selena, Ashley, Vanessa, Kristen, Rob because they all get pictured, but Zac, the real star is never pictures because he is a profesional, he is always working all the rumors about him having sex on public, asking for drugs and who*res are lies, because he is a saint, he is working all the time… COME ON!

merlin's Mum @ 09/19/2013 at 10:42 am

@BOB: we aren’t all stupid and this has nothing to do with his ex so keep her out of it. I have heard that he lost his best friend and cousin to cancer and that may have contributed to him going off the rails.

wait a second, Efron’s publicist is Melissa Kates… Melissa Kates was Cory Monteith´ publicist… yeah he is “HAPPY AND HEALTHY” .

@merlin’s Mum:
they died 3/5 months ago, he has been an addict since 2011. Oh you were one of the ones bitc*hing at Vanessa at every oportunity and now you are trying to get sympathy for the coke head. COME ON!

@….
dont compare corey to zac and vice versa, one that is just disrespectful.

@bob
people like you and others have probably been waiting to come on here for years and hate on him and then act all like blah blah blah, i told you people, not all of his fans think he’s perfect, so i have no idea where you think his fans think he’s a saint and etc, so stop with the saint crap.

so zac’s team knew this story was going to break, and they beat the tabloids to the punch by leaking (according to a source) the story to people mag. my guess is a few of the coke head friends zac dropped when he went to rehab are the ones spilling the deets on him. hope he realizes now they were never really his friends.

@BOB: Zacs own fans didnt even know about his addiction? So what that says is Hudgens fans knew all about it because she was spilling the beans to her circles and fanbase about Zacs lifestyle. Maybe big mouthed Stella got in on the action too. Nice job. She probably couldn’t get over the fact that he let go of her so easily too. Why do you want to kick Zac when he’s down? Hudgens is one of my least favorite ‘celebs’, and i use that term in the most liberal sense of the word, but i woud lay off if she were messed up somehow like Zac is.

merlin's Mum @ 09/19/2013 at 11:29 am

@BOB: And people like you have been hating on him and tearing him to pieces for over three years? Do you think people can put up with that kind of hate without losing it? Again I say, pi$$ off her fans. At least he is actually working still.

Found some videos from TIFF. He seems like he’s really trying but personally, I always thought he was on something. He often rubbed his nose in interviews and couldn’t sit still. Of course, I don’t know much about addicts.

I’m glad he’s seeking help. I just hope he doesn’t relapse.

Here are some recent videos from TIFF. In my opinion, he doesn’t look happy and healthy. At least he is trying and I don’t wish badness on anyone. Addiction can lead to death. It is a very serious thing. He needs to take time off from working. I feel like the stress of hollywood with all it’s pressures will eventually do him in. Being famous and making it BIG is not everything.

@Hello: Many actors do coke on the set. You cant take the time it takes to drink 5 cups of coffee, and its not the right ‘up’ for the task. Most everyones on drugs in the club scene too. Dont be so naive. Somehow, Zac let things get way way out of control. Maybe he blows HUGE BUCKS on his addiction, that will raise some major red flags FAST and have everyone around him begging him to go to rehab. He probably evolved from a social user to a hardcore user. Seems like a long struggle ahead for that poor guy.

@AEM: You forgot about Crawford Wilson who used to date Vanessa’s best friend Laura New. That guy is a complete mess…always high and drunk. There’s even a video of him and some other dude doing a shot…it was early in morning according to them in the video. There is also a picture of Zac taken with Simon Rex (guy who was in the sex video with Paris Hilton). I think he also hangs with the Pheed guys sometimes. When I saw that pic, I knew Zac might be in trouble or headed down that path.

I wish him all the best staying clean … you can tell most of the petty bickering commenters here have no clue what dealing with an bad addiction is like. Arguing about who he should be dating or how he should be projecting his image is stupid. Zac needs to focus on not dying right now … everything else is not important.

ok i dont know what is going on here. all i know is that zac is struggling but he doesnt want anyones help IF the sources are correct. we dont know the full story. i do feel sorry for him as a fan, but i still think that he doing it to just let loose is bad because i remember that just after hsm3 promo he said he wouldnt do that because hes not that type of guy. it disappoints me because i never expected this from him. i dont want to see his downfall so it kind of pissed me off when @Nightwish just stepped in as a supposed fan when he doesnt even support him. but i apologize Nightwish, at first i thought u were a vanessa fan, but clearly you just hate vanessa. why? i dunno but u have some grudge against her. but im glad ur supporting zac even though the circumstances are distorted.

@soho: so at the end of the day both zac and vanessa are no better than eachother a.k.a THEY ARE HUMAN. y’all are hating on either zac or vanessa when both are just as guilty of whatever u think they have done such as the friends they hang with. we all got that one friend who is crazy or ratchet its just whether they will effect u negatively, positively and whether it will effect ur other relationships. @BOB stop. vanessa has done plenty of crap zac isnt all that bad damn. @Nightwish stop. u just came here cuz u hate vanessa so just stop. i know how u roll.
done.

He should try to get Vanessa back.

If he’s had this problem for 2 years and it got worse he was good and happier when he was with Vanessa.

@pika: You are right. Zac and Vanessa are not perfect. They are human and make mistakes like everyone else. I wish the best for Zac because he has too much talent to throw it away. I’m sure he will pull it together. As for @NIghtwish, he is obsessed with Vanessa. He is always on her posts making rude and negative comments about her. He spends more time on there than her fans. He has a screw loose.

ARE LIFE ABUSE. THEY ARE GOOD FOR NOTHING. DON’T START THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE AND YOU WON’T HAVE A MONKEY ON YOUR BACK TILL THE DAY YOU DIE.

I am a supporter, this news if at all true, disappointing. too much too fast, obviously has some issues which need to be dealt with. he does need to grow up some and mature. all the attention this is receiving is
nobody’s business except zefron.

@Lauren:
LMAO
He does have friends you know and people he constantly interacts with. It’s not like this is privy to all the people he regularly party with.
Get you head outta your ass. Your ignorance astounds me.

@hyde
Move along

Nice to respect this man’s privacy TMZ and JJ. but since you didn’t I’d like to say that there are some very misleading information here.
First Zac himself sought help it doesn’t matter when or how many times. He sought help on his own as an outpatient and I would bet money he will continue to do so if he feels he needs to. Next his parents are wonderful people who by no means are controlling. My goodness he has been living here on his own since he was 17 years old. He is very close to them but he is a man that makes his own choices good or bad. Then I’m sure this man has no trouble with women. oh he is so ugly he can’t fnd love? PLEEZE!!!! I’m sorry when you have a problem and at the same time your overbooked working there is just no time for a relationship, believe me women throw themselves at him and he is not lonely. the career? What actor doesn’t worry about his career that is a given but here is the truth it was the friends , the fast crowd he hung out with. That is the tragedy that happened to Zac and millions of other young people. Bottom line is Zac sought help is he getting it , he is in recovery and as long as he has loving good people aound him , his family Zac will be fine. .It takes a big man to know he has a problem ,to admit it , and get help.

From E News
UPDATE: Despite a report claiming that Efron had undergone two stints in rehab, a source insists that the actor in fact only underwent treatment one time, as E! News originally reported

Advice to fans of Tom Welling! Ignore the existence of Donte=Kalamonde etc…you have to help her and not feed his hate !ignore it!

October 4 to the movies to see Parkland! Great movie with great actors, a real movie without special effects stupid!! go Zac, Tom, Marcia, Colin!

@IMO: i agreed with you up until the point you said he is not lonely. oh dear. have you ever been lonely? its a disgusting feeling. no matter how many women throw themselves at him and how many “friends” he has, its down to who he can really cry on in the night when hes down. we can only speculate, but i speculate he is depressed and lonely. Hollywood is all about image at the end of the day.When hes working hard and he comes home to an empty apartment, reality is sure to kick him.Hard.

@IMO: and right when you said “oh he is so ugly he can’t fnd love? PLEEZE!!!! ” sounded like a shallow superficial statement im sorry. because he is an attractive man, automatically means he can find love? his personality may be flawed although his skin is not.

It shouldn’t be too hard to do some figuring and take an educated guess on what was happening two years ago. He was thrown in a movie way over his head with situations he could never dream of. He was used, played with and discarded, and when realization hit, it hurt. That’s when he started acting strange (dropping an oversized condom on the red carpet in an attempt to look more grown up and desirable was really pathetic). His folks were at Cannes that year and must have known what he was feeling, but probably felt he would get over it. Well, he didn’t; and obviously turned to something to make him feel better. The entertainment field is filled with rejection of some type of other, and that’s probably why drugs are so prevalent.

@Lauren:
LOL Lipkin, right? You always say the same thing everywhere.
You’re pathetic. Are you living in some sheltered home up there in Illinois? Seems like you know nothing in life.

@hyde
No need to be rude just saying
So

sonny boy u will be fine when u
come runnin outta da closet….

@pika: I totally agree with you. I mean we don’t know his private life, but we can guess how hard it is to have a relationship in the public eye, and it is hard to trust anyone when you are as well known as he is. It’s hard enough to be young nowadays without being in the public eye, but having to constantly watch your back and not be able to trust anyone would be even harder. Having access to tons of gorgeous women does not equal happiness for everyone.
I really feel for him and I hope he can stay clean and go on to have a successful career, and hopefully find true love in the future.

@pika: I meant no harm but your right it did sound shallow. but I was upset of the reason they tried to assume were the cause. I do think a person like him could get lonely mostly because he can’t trust anyone. Every woman he meets he has to figure out if she wants to be with him because of his fame , looks, money . So it’s very difficult to trust anyone to like you for yourself. I hope you understand what I was trying to say. Anyway my heart breaks for him if the cause is any of those reasons but I still feel it was the crowd he was running with. If he has good people, friends and family that love him to help him get through this then he will be successful. It’s a tough road ahead but he already did the hard part admitting to himself he had a problem then he was brave enough to get the help he needed. I only wish him love and happiness in his life and career.

First, I’m not the same k who commented before.
Second, it’s so sad that there are people like this BOB/Hyde etc who seem happy with Zac’s problems and feel the need to say how that Vanessa is so much better than Zac like they know what she does behind the cameras, when they truly don’t.. Oh and let me tell you one truth: Vanessa is not perfect! She’s human and makes mistakes like all of us…Even now…
Third, I see that this nightwish came to troll Zac’s posts too with his obsession with Vanessa. That’s also sad..
As for the reasons about the break up there were rumours about Zac cheating but there were also rumours about Vanessa cheating.. So, don’t tell me that you know what’s true…

k that explains why his face looked hella bloated.

@k: LOL I was kasia before but I got banned for some unknown reason so i didn;t mean to take your name ;-)

i am sorry for his problems but Zac is an Assh*le.

@k: Who cares, k ? That relationship was 3 years ago. Tell me why vanessa hudgens is even relevant in the least with this news, except that a vanessa source in the know tells TMZ that “vanessa had nothing to do with it” just so she gets cheap exposure off Zacs recent misfortune? Let’s add to poor Zacs burden by letting his ex score points, why dont we. Of course Vanessa makes mistakes, but the ones she makes are extremely irking, and just something about her character is wrong which is why she will never be a big star.

LOL, I see Hudgens haters getting thirsty here. MAYBE, they included V’s name because they do not want the public to assume he was devastated from the break up right? I mean, the heartthrob still pining for his ex? the PR team would not want that do they? hence, the clearing of Hudgens name.. see, I said MAYBE, unlike others stating opinions as if they are fact geez…

that said, drug abuse is a very serious matter ( i recently attended an anti-drug seminar ) but well.. well.. well.. announcement just in time for the “Neighbors” promo? Naughty Frat boy theme.. hmm.. goes well together does’nt it?

hope he TRULY gets help.

@lol:Um, this is Hudgens we’re talking about, right? I think it goes without saying that nobody would throw their life away for a 4’11 keebler elf looking 3rd rate actress when they can score prime chicks night after night? LMAO

@lol:
You’re a fool if you think his PR team leaked the info to TMZ. Zac would never allow them to blame his “controlling” parents for his problems.

Dear Zac; Why don’t you take some time and go to school? With your talent you could go any where. Just look at some of the child stars of past years. They went to school and their careers are doing just fine. High School musical was on the other njght and I loved it! After hearing of your recent troubles; Do I see this performance by you and the other High school Musical movies which I have the 2nd and 3rd in a different light? Didn’t Emma Watson and Jodie Foster graduate from some Ivy League schools back east? surely, that move wouldn’t hurt your career would it? Please don’t follow down the current path of some other stars of late. You are young and may be you need just a little time away from the spotlight yes? Are you spiritual?

Nightwish, right? Defo PR team clearly does not want her associated with his rehab and they made sure of it by stating it. sooo… statement was not from V’s team. point made. thankyouverymuch.

flyhigh, coz you know Zac so well right?

Nightwish @ 09/20/2013 at 6:13 am

Well if what you say in your last comment is true, then you are obviously operating on more info than anyone else here. To make it clear that he didnt go downhill because of the Hudgens breakup, well i can see that. Imo it wasnt even necessary to bring her name up though. His PR team is doing a knock-up job if you ask me. I would have said Zac had a cocain use problem that escalated over the past year, and that it was solely contributable to pressures and associations from being involved in hollywood. Leave his family completely out of it, and for fks sake keep Hudgens as ancient history where she belongs. Nobody says he’s obligated to spill all the freaking beans, in fact, just saying he checked in for drug abuse is good enough. So many stars do these days anyways.

@Nightwish: its hype because hes a good actor who appeared to have a good head on his shoulders and came from disney. pretty much it dude. dont worry im not having a go at u u just do your thang, but i think all this is too much overthinking. he has a drug problem. millions of people do and he sought help. am i the only one who is seeing in black and white? not to mention that hes a damn human??!!
??????????

@Nightwish:
lmao you clearly don’t know anything. You dont know anything about Vanessa´s team, Zac´s team or his old team (they leaked the news it was all over blind gossip a couple of months ago…. do you know who Gina is? ha)
Do you actually think Vanessa would use his name when she NEVER said anything about him the last couple of years? you know, her team didnt even said A THING about her scandal a couple of years ago. You are obssesed with her, but she is just a young woman who enjoys her life.
Zac´s team released the break up news and all the other rumors, Vanesa and her team never said anything. Believe me, even if you want to hate her, she would always be out and about smiling and showing people like you how wrong you are. When you and the others zefron fans were heating on her the las couple of months, Vanessa was traveling around the world, spending time with her family and her boyfriend, living a healthy life. Meanwhile Zac was snorting lines of coke and Kstew spleeping around to get roles.

I can’t say I’m surprised. Zac looked really bad at SWSX and he hasn’t looked happy on the red carpet for awhile. He has been hanging with some toxic people. I hope he realizes that these people just aren’t worth the trouble and one guy in particular probably should be in rehab as well. I’m glad he sought help and I hope he continues to stay sober and healthy. Nightwish is a classic headcase. He clearly is obsessed with Vanessa and I hope he never gets within 100 miles of her.

Haha, I bet Vanessa is giving a huge sigh of relief right now. She barely avoided that trainwreck. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was why they broke up. Good for her, for seeing the warning signs early and getting out of that mess. And if he dumped her, well then he just did her a huge favor because dating an addict is a terrible situation to be in. Addictions never go away and this guy’s gonna relapse for sure if he doesn’t kill himself first. No one should have to deal with that.

@Kylie: You make me laugh (◣_◢)┌∩┐

@stanzaO
i dont get why people all of the sudden think this is the reason for them breaking -up? no one knows why they ended it? and apparently that zacs been to rehab it means thats the reason why they ended it? its like oh since zac became an addict it must mean that thats the reason? so at the end of the day no one knows why they ended it, and i doubt its this.

Take care, Zac. I still can’t believe that he was into drugs for two years without TMZ etc finding about it. A little fishy that.
And this second story seems nonsense. Also, E! said that he didn’t go to rehab twice.
I’ve always heard that he is very close to his parents. He went to Peru with his Dad a week or so ago. He was looking good in the pics. Hope he is doing good and has sorted out his issues.

And I still can’t believe some people are making fun of his problems. And why has this source mentioned Vanessa’s name? Fishy,

I still don’t believe the entire story. Some things just don’t add up.
Maybe he’ll talk about it in future and we’ll know.

It’s not surprising to some. He’s been struggling for a few years. He hit the rails in 2011. If you look at photos from various events it’s obvious. I hope he can stay clean because in HW, drugs are everywhere and they are a fact of life. Drugs at parties, drugs on set, drugs in the clubs. Even if you surround yourself with good people you have to want to stay sober. It’s a tough road because it’s always there….and when there’s that need to escape. He comes from a good family and they have been helping him get through this.
