Zac Efron Leaves Rehab, Allegedly Treated For Cocaine Addiction

The always quotable Oscar Wilde once said, "There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about." It's with that in mind that we bring you news of these unsavory rumors circulating the Internet about Zac Efron. According to TMZ, the High School Musical star recently left rehab after a brief stint, but not just for alcohol abuse, as was first reported. Instead, Efron has been battling a cocaine addiction that allegedly "spiraled out of control" during the filming of Seth Rogan's new comedy Neighbors, in which Efron co-stars. TMZ's sources claim that Efron's drug use was well-known on set, but was also not limited to cocaine. Efron apparently dabbled in ecstasy, too. He was also involved in a "coke rager" at the MGM Grand earlier this year, which resulted in $50,000 worth of damage to a suite, according to TMZ.
Is this gossip unfounded? There's no way to tell at the moment. Expectedly, Efron's rep told TMZ, "Don't think we'll be making a comment." But rumor's just rumor until proven otherwise, and often exists in that sinister, nebulous space between fact and fiction. To quote another wordsmith, the 2nd-century Carthaginian Christian scholar Tertullian, "Why call rumor an evil? Because it flies? Because it testifies? Or because it generally lies? Even when it has some modicum of truth in it, rumor is not free from some taint of falsehood; it detracts from, adds to, or deviates from the truth." (TMZ)
