Demi Moore was ‘having some issues’ before 911 call
"She's been having some issues lately with some other stuff so I don't know what she's been taking or not," the friend said.
Paramedics were called to Moore's home near Benedict Canyon on Monday night after friends reported that the 49-year-old actress was convulsing, semi-conscious and "burning up" after she had "smoked something" similar to incense. Authorities released the redacted 911 call on Friday.
When the dispatcher asked if she had "done this before," her friend said she didn't know.
"There's been some stuff recently that we're all just finding out," the friend said.
At one point during the call, the unidentified friend said, "I don't know what would have made her do that."
In a statement released earlier this week to Ministry of Gossip, her publicist said the actress, whose split from husband Ashton Kutcher fueled headlines in recent months, was seeking professional help.
"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," her publicist said. "She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends."
