Demi Moore rushed into hospital suffering from exhaustion

Demi Moore was rushed to hospital last night to be treated for exhaustion.

The 49-year-old actress, who has appeared increasingly frail in recent weeks, was taken to hospital by ambulance following a call to 911 just before 11pm last night.

The star’s spokesperson said the actress is seeking ‘professional assistance’ after the stresses of recent months.

However, showbiz website TMZ are claiming the actress is being treated for ‘substance abuse’.

The news emerged as pictures of her young husband, from whom she is estranged, emerged enjoying a beer as he partied with friends at a Bruno Mars gig in Brazil.

‘She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends.’

The mother-of-three was with a female friend when she allegedly began shaking, it has been reported.

Demi’s frail and gaunt and appearance in recent weeks has caused considerable concern.

The actress, who announced she was divorcing husband Ashton Kutcher last November, has lost a considerable amount of weight over the past four months.

And today it was announced she has pulled out of a cameo appearance in the film about porn star Linda Lovelace in which she had been cast as feminist icon Gloria Steinem.

Demi last appeared in public on January 14 at the Cinema For Peace event at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills.

While Demi is seeking treatment her estranged husband is currently in Sao Paulo where he has been attending the Fashion Week.

He was seen enjoying a beer with friends at a Bruno Mars concert, oblivious to the drama his wife is now embroiled in.

The Two And A Half Men star is also said to have moved on following the breakdown of his marriage to Demi.
