Demi Moore's 911 call will be edited to remove medical, drug details


L.A. officials plan to release an edited recording of a 911 call made from Demi Moore's home Monday after removing any personal information about her medical condition and medications.

The Los Angeles City Attorney's office has recommended to the Los Angeles Fire Department that certain portions be deleted to comply with federal medical privacy laws.

"We've reviewed the 911 tape and we have made recomendations," said Frank Mateljan, spokesman for the city attorney.

Paramedics rushed to Moore's home near Benedict Canyon on Monday night. They treated her and took her to a hospital, according to sources.

In a statement to the Ministry of Gossip, a Moore representative said: "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, who recently starred in the movie "Margin Call," disclosed last fall that she was ending her marriage to actor Ashton Kutcher.
