Reports from Star magazine suggest the 20-year-old opted to secretly check herself into the celebrity treatment center The Meadows in Arizona in late July.
And it’s believed her famous mother is not taking the news well and is worried her daughter could be following in her footsteps. The Indecent Proposal actress has already completed two stints in rehab, one in the 1980s, and one most recently in 2012, following her split from ex-husband Ashton Kutcher.
“Demi feels so much guilt about Tallulah spiraling out of control like she did,” a source told the publication.
“It’s like she’s living past experiences all over again. But she’s trying to be strong for her daughter,” the source added.
Of course, growing up surrounded by wealth and the glitz and glamour of Hollywood can have a detrimental effect on any teenager’s life, and Tallulah developed a bit of a rep for being a party girl in her younger years. She was even arrested for underage drinking when she was just 17 years old.
“Tallulah doesn’t know right from wrong, because she was raised without boundaries,” another source said. “She looks for trouble to get attention.”
Apparently, Tallulah has been struggling with addiction problems for quite some time, but she only recently sought the advice of her mother, who suggested she get help.
“Demi had been shocked when Tallulah confessed to her,” the source said, “but she knew enough not to judge. She knew her daughter needed her, and she was glad she could be there to help.”
If the latest allegations are true, then we hope Tallulah can get the help that she needs.
