Zac Efron and his bodyguard were caught in Skid Row recently and had given the excuse that they had run out of gas. Zac was beat down by a reported transient while trying to assist his bodyguard. Zac was said to have checked into rehab previously, but that was said to be a sham. Now, Zac refuses to admit that he has a problem with drugs, namely a reported cocaine addiction. TMZ reports:
Zac Efron doesn’t have any problems with drugs … at least that’s what Zac Efron thinks, according to his friends — who say anyone telling him otherwise is quickly 86’ed.
TMZ has learned the actor’s friends are scared to broach the subject of Zac’s sobriety … because not only will they be ignored — but they say anyone who makes an attempt is cut from Efron’s life.
We’re told Zac refuses to believe he’s on a destructive path … and one of his friends tells us they think he could become the next Cory Monteith if he doesn’t get help.
As we previously reported … Zac’s friends say he never went to a real rehab facility last year. Instead, they say he received private therapy at a friends house.
Will Zac Efron end up being the next Cory Monteith? Hopefully his friends and family will be able to step in before his alleged issues get that bad. We’re holding onto hope!
