Zac Efron, the former teen idol, and now an up-and-coming star, finished a stay in rehab earlier this year. It was initially reported that he had entered rehab due to alcohol abuse, but sources have informed TMZ that Efron had a serious problem with Cocaine.
The star's addiction got increasingly worse during the filming of his movie, "Neighbors".
"Sources tell us Zac ... was a no-show on a number of days," TMZ says. "It was common knowledge he was struggling with cocaine," according to a source.
"We're told ... early this year, Zac and some friends went on a coke rager in a room at the SkyLofts at the MGM Grand in Vegas ... and caused around $50,000 in damage. No word on who took care of the bill," said TMZ.
Several other sources confirmed that Efron had tried the new party drug, "Molly". "Molly" has made recent headlines after several people have died after using it.
Efron's reps were contacted but did not comment on the rumors.
Efron was seen at the Toronto Film Festival for the premiere of his newest movie, "Parkland". At the festival, Efron said: "I'm good, real good". Sources say he is doing much better. "He's healthy, happy and not drinking," says a source. "He's taking time to focus on working."
"Parkland" is a film that is about the three days that surrounded JFK's death. "The three days are really shrouded in so much mystery and controversy with conspiracy theories," Efron said. "Growing up, I didn't know what was fact or fiction. But the simple truths of what transpired that we know for a fact are all in this movie."
Efron will be releasing another movie in January called "That Awkward Moment", about a group of boys that vow to stay single.
