We can't stand to hear all of this, how rough of a ride it's been for Demi Moore. And now, it seems, she's been struggling for a lot longer than any of us even knew.
According to friends close to the star, Demi's admittance into rehab is just the culmination of her really terrible year. Those who know her best claim that for months she has allowed herself to decend down a slippery slope. Worn out and stressed, Demi hasn't been taking proper care of herself and those close to her say that it wasn't all Ashton Kutcher's fault. In fact, her lack of interest in her well-being put equal stress on their marriage. As the insider explains:
"Really, it was over the last year her friends saw a change. She wasn't sleeping as well, didn't seem to be eating and looked really gaunt .. 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. Her family and friends have been really worried."
Wow. We had no idea. We just assumed she got this way since it was revealed that Ashton was unfaithful. If she's been suffering for much longer than that, imagine how much WORSE it must've gotten when her marriage finally did fall apart.
At least now, in her own way, she is tackling her problems dead on. She really has no choice; it's either clean up or spiral so out of control that there is no coming back.
And we just don't want to see that happen to poor Demi.
