Zac Efron dead? No, this is a hoax…for now. The young actor may follow the footsteps of Cory Monteith if he is not careful to control the rage within him.
According to a new report, the “High School Musical” actor is currently so wired up following his parents’ alleged divorce that he may go back to his drug abusing ways.
Zac Efron is said to be devastated right now, because his parents broke up. Court papers reportedly revealed that his mom, Starla Baskett, 67 and dad David Efron, 56, went their separate ways in March 2015. Baskett then filed for divorce almost a month later citing “irreconcilable differences.”
His friends are worried that he might turn to one thing for comfort, but may eventually cost him his life: drugs.
Since this came from an exclusive report from gossip site Radar Online, the news is actually doubtful. But then if true, Zac Efron truly needs his friends’ and even fans’ guidance.
“He seemed to have cleaned up his act but this could be devastating for him,” a concerned source told Radar.
A source also claimed that Efron’s only wish right now is for his parents to get along and reconcile. the young actor is said to be taking the news really hard.
It is not a hidden fact that Zac Efron had been battling his drugs addiction for years now. He seems to be doing well combatting it but friends are now worried that this impending divorce just might be the trigger for Efron to risk his life again.
Efron, who has “been off drugs and into leading a healthy life,” according to Radar’s source, “has been following a rigorous fitness program and was looking forward to spending more time with his family. This breakup has made him angry and confused.”
Back in 2014, it has even been reported that ‘Glee’ star Lea Michele, notably Cory Monteith’s girlfriend when he passed away so suddenly due to drug abuse, was very worried about Zac Efron.
After Monteith died, Lea is said to have become a sober support for Zac. “She’d even invite him on hikes through Runyon Canyon. But lately, Zac’s been standing her up,” the insider told Hollywood Life. “She’s deeply worried that Zac is teetering on the brink of tragedy.”
