Demi Moore rushed to hospital for substance abuse

By Agencies

Demi Moore was hospitalized late Monday in Los Angeles and as per reports the hospitalization was linked to substance abuse.

The actress, who split up with husband Ashton Kutcher in November, will "seek further professional assistance" for the substance abuse.

Paramedics rushed to Moore's LA home around 10:45 p.m. on Monday and transported her to a nearby hospital.

Moore, 49, was taken to an unnamed Los Angeles-area hospital after paramedics spent more than a half hour at her ultra-private modern mansion in the hills near Franklin Canyon Park, sources confirmed.

Moore split late last year from husband of six years, Ashton Kutcher, who stars on CBS "Two and a Half Men" in the wake of allegations that he had been cheating on her.

Moore is seeking professional help to treat "exhaustion" and "overall health" issues, her spokeswoman said on Tuesday, as reported by Reuters.

"Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health. She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends," Moore's spokeswoman said in a statement to Reuters.

The statement follows media reports that Moore was rushed to hospital on Monday night after paramedics were called to her Los Angeles home. Celebrity news website TMZ.com cited substance abuse as the cause, but that could not be confirmed.

Moore's representatives declined any further comment beyond the written statement.

"Ghost" star Moore, 49, filed for divorce from 33-year-old "Two and A Half Men" actor Kutcher in November 2011, after a San Diego woman went public about a brief fling she had with Kutcher.
