Zac Efron reportedly broke his jaw after a long night of partying.
E! News reported this month the 26-year-old’s actor’s mouth was wired shut after he allegedly slipped in a puddle of water at the entrance of his Los Angeles home.
But according to Star magazine, the circumstances surrounding the accident are far more concerning for the recently rehabbed star, who had allegedly been “partying” before the fall.
“Zac was alone at home, and he leaned forward and fell into his coffee table. He broke his jaw on the table and was afraid to call an ambulance, so his friend took him to the ER,” a source said.
Apparently Zac is now determined to get rid of his demons.
The actor has reportedly hired a sober coach to help him stay on the right path.
“[He's] tired of his addiction hindering his career!” the insider said.
Zac is expected to make a full recovery.
The star has had a rough year, with various media reports indicating he sought professional help for substance abuse issues in March and again while shooting forthcoming comedy Neighbors.
Earlier reports suggested Zac had struggled with alcohol addiction while TMZ claimed he was battling a “serious” cocaine problem and had recently suffered a relapse.
Zac has not addressed the reports directly, but thanked his fans for their support in an Instagram post in September.
“Hey guys! Just returned from an incredible trip to Peru with my dad and wanted to thank you all for your support these past few weeks. means the world to me. Love you guys! – Z,” he wrote.
