So sad. We're starting to worry that his wake up call just is never going to come.
"He definitely did not OD but, yes, he was partying. He doesn't think he's going to die. He doesn't want to stop. In his eyes, he thinks, 'I'm having fun, so what? I'm making $2 million a week, the show has the best ratings, I show up for up work. What's the problem?' He's got so many people saying they're concerned and they have the power to help him but you can't force things on someone, you can't make him get help. He loves the attention, he loves to shock people, he loves that he gets away with all of this. And he can because there are no consequences – that's the problem. It's who he is, like it or leave it. Maybe at 22, you're with five hookers, so what? But when you're his age and a father, it's just ridiculous."
Another friend says:
"He's in serious condition. Doctors are still trying to figure out exactly what it was. They're running a lot of blood tests. … The crazy thing is, he'll probably be just fine. It's part of why he doesn't see the problem. People are rallying around him to intervene. Everyone is very concerned for him at this point. It's a really scary situation. Nobody is surprised. This is an ongoing problem."
We couldn't have said any of this better ourselves.
The sad truth of the matter is it that everyone's concern is ultimately useless, because until he realizes he needs help, he's going to continue to do whatever it is that he wants to do.
He's had no consequences for such a long time that he probably truly thinks he's untouchable, and that's what makes us more nervous than anything else.
We sincerely hope that his behavior changes, for the sake of his health AND his children, but we seriously doubt that that will ever happen at this point.
