People have been giving Ashton a bad rap for not coming to Demi's aid quickly when she went to the hospital for drugs.
Well, it looks like he's all in now, as he's been praying and spending time with her to help!
We spotted him pulling into her house earlier, just after Bruce Willis, but we didn't exactly know what he'd be doing once he got there. Turns out, neither did he, so he he sought counsel and guidance from spiritual advisers at the Kabbalah Center in Beverly Hills on how he could best help Demi:
"This has been a very hard time for Ashton. He loves Demi very much, and he feels absolutely helpless right now. Ashton and Demi have been praying together at her house, and he mainly just wants to provide comfort to her right now. This absolutely isn't a reconciliation, but there is still a lot of love there and he would never turn his back on her — it's just not who Ashton is."
We would expect the answer of Just Be There For Her to be an easy one that a trip to a Kabbalah center, before you saw your ex, wouldn't have give you… but we digress.
The source continues:
"Ashton has had loved ones in his life that have dealt with addiction issues, and he realizes that it's counter-productive for someone to be forced to go to rehab," the insider says. "Ashton knows the addict has to want to get help for themselves. There is a lot of noise around Demi right now, and Ashton wants her to know he is there for her and supports her no matter what. Ashton absolutely wants her to get help for what he thinks is the biggest threat to her health, anorexia, but Demi just isn't ready to take that next step yet."
This source just absolutely loves the word absolutely when it comes to Ashton for some reason!
Regardless of what he's doing, be it praying, consoling, telling jokes, telling her to go to rehab, not telling her to go to rehab, the best thing is to just be there for her — and that's what it looks like he's doing.
So, we're glad you're there for support, Ashton!
