The late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was "trapped in a love triangle" before he died, reports The New York Post in what the newspaper claims is an exclusive story for its famous Page Six.
"The Oscar winner was ‘caught in between’ his relationship with longtime girlfriend Mimi O’Donnell and a woman with whom he had recently hooked up, according to his journals, law-enforcement sources told The Post [yesterday, Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2014]" the story reports. The article did not name the other woman, and does not say whether Hoffman names her in his diary/journal entries.
The Post story says: "Hoffman implied that his new gal pal was one reason O’Donnell — the mother of his three young children — might have bounced him from their Jane Street pad about three months ago, sources said."
The story adds, "O’Donnell also didn’t want the drug-addled Hoffman living with her and their kids while he was still using, sources have said. She hoped the tough love would make him get clean faster."
The story says Hoffman also wrote that he was "ashamed" for having fallen off the wagon after being sober for many years.
