Former MTV reality star Tila Tequila is headed to rehab for substance abuse issues, TMZ.com reports, after a week in which she reportedly attempted suicide and may have suffered a brain aneurysm.
As reported previously, the former star of “Shot at Love With Tila Tequila” triggered a flood of sometimes conflicting media reports over a series of 911 calls and a stint in a Los Angeles-area hospital. Reports focused on a possible aneurysm as well as an alleged suicide attempt and what was described as an overdose of prescription drugs.
The 30-year-old is now said to be seeking help for psychological problems along with the substance abuse treatment, according to TMZ.
The story reports: “According to her manager, Tila agreed to treatment after several of Tila’s friends staged a miniature intervention — following Tila’s suicide scare last week. We’re told Tila has been struggling with serious substance abuse problems as well as psychiatric issues recently — the suicide scare was just the straw that broke the camel’s back.”
Sources would not disclose which rehab facility had agreed to take Tequila, and it was unclear when she planned to enter the facility.
