Zac Efron pitched some bullshit story to police yesterday after he and his “bodyguard” were beaten up by “transients” while waiting for a tow truck in the Skid Row area of Los Angeles overnight on Wednesday. The story sounded like absolute rubbish from start to finish – especially after the “slipped on a puddle and broke my jaw” nonsense last year, and turns out, his friends are on the same page as us and are pretty sure he’s doing drugs again. Uh, duh! Ya think?
Cops are skeptical, and it’s echoed by Zac’s friends. As one friend put it, “Zac’s a loner. He goes out rarely and the idea of him driving for miles to go to some sushi restaurant in downtown L.A. after midnight is preposterous.”
Several of Zac’s friends tell us the so-called bodyguard is not a bodyguard at all. We’ve confirmed he’s a convicted drug dealer who has been spending a lot of time with Zac recently … despite warnings from friends.
There were a number of reports Zac went to rehab twice last year to kick his cocaine habit. But sources now tell us … Zac NEVER went to rehab. Both times he went to a friend’s house outside California and received private therapy — but that’s it.
Zac has lost friends in the last few months because they became frustrated that he was slipping off the rails again.
By the way … on Thursday we reported what the “bodyguard” told us … that he was viciously stabbed in the face, chest and stomach by transients. Law enforcement sources tell us … when they arrived at the scene the only one bleeding was Zac. The “bodyguard” was just sitting there texting away.
Right, so it’s complete bullshit, just like we thought. No surprises there.
