There have been many reported reasons for Demi Moore’s recent hospitalization, from exhaustion to substance abuse. It’s now being reported that nitrous oxide was behind the health scare.
According to TMZ, friends who were on the scene the night of the hospitalization told EMTs Moore was inhaling nitrous oxide from aerosol cans before 911 was called. TMZ also reports the actress was exhibiting seizure-like symptoms after inhaling the nitrous.
People magazine also reports friends have been worried about their Moore for quite some time. “Really, it was over the last year her friends saw a change,” one source said about her split from husband Ashton Kutcher. “She wasn’t sleeping as well, didn’t seem to be eating and looked really gaunt.”
According to People, Moore’s recent prescription-drug abuse was a factor in the end of her marriage. “It was a sticking point for Ashton.” “He wanted her to take care of herself and get a hold of things, and she wouldn’t.”
Moore endured a very public and emotional split from Kutcher back in November, publicly announcing the breakup with “sadness and a heavy heart” after months of not-so-quiet rumblings that Kutcher had been unfaithful.
