Our deepest apologies to Tatum O'Neal! Yesterday we heard she was back in rehab to treat a cocaine addiction, but apparently sources were giving out completely false information!
Instead of a relapse, the Oscar winner actually had back surgery and has been admitted to a treatment facility where professionals will supervise her use of pain killers so she DOESN'T get addicted. Her rep explained:
Tatum does not have a cocaine addiction and Tatum is not in rehab for a cocaine relapse. Tatum O’Neal had medical problems with her back. She had back surgery and went to a treatment facility to supervise her use of pain killers prescribed by her doctor until she no longer needs any pain medication. The story about a cocaine addiction is false.
That is happy news then! Sort of. Ha!
Obviously, we hope she feels better ASAP after such a major surgery, but we're just really happy she's not back on illegal drugs again!
Once again, sorry for the mixup and get well soon, gurl!
