Demi Moore rushed to hospital for reported substance abuse
Paramedics responded to 911 call, transported actress to L.A. hospital Monday night
Two months after her split from Ashton Kutcher, a painfully thin Demi Moore was rushed to a hospital late Monday and is entering rehab, sources told the Daily News.
"Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health," her publicist Carrie Gordon said in a statement to the Daily News.
"She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends," Gordon said.
Moore, 49, was taken to an unnamed Los Angeles-area hospital after paramedics spent more than a half hour at her ultra-private modern mansion in the hills near Franklin Canyon Park, sources confirmed.
A fire department spokesman said a 911 call came from Moore's address on Oak Pass Road.
"We did respond there at 10:49 p.m. for an unknown illness," Los Angeles Fire spokesman Matt Spence told The News. "A patient was transported at 11:21 p.m. to a local hospital."
TMZ.com was first to report the distress call and said the mysterious issue was substance abuse.
The mother-of-three looked glamorous but gaunt at a charity event for Sean Penn's J/P Haitian Relief foundation Jan 14.
She recently told Harper's Bazaar she has a "love-hate" relationship with her body and fears she's unlovable.
"What scares me is that I'm going to ultimately find out at the end of my life that I'm really not loveable, that I'm not worthy of being loved," she said in an interview for the glossy's February edition.
Moore pulled the plug on her six-year marriage to actor Ashton Kutcher, 33, in November after a San Diego woman went public with claims she had a brief affair with the "Two and a Half Men" actor.
