Reports of Demi Moore’s hard partying have been surfacing since she was hospitalized in Los Angeles earlier this week for “exhaustion.”
Us Weekly reported she was table dancing at Hollywood hot spot Beacher’s Madhouse on Jan. 11.
“She was trashed,” a source told the magazine.
The celebrity website TMZ.com reported on Wednesday that sources said Moore had a seizure after doing whip-its, a street name for a small nitrous oxide inhalant.
Moore, who turns 50 in November, married Bruce Willis at The White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas on Nov. 21, 1987. They divorced in 2000. In 1993, she starred in “Indecent Proposal,” which was shot on location in Las Vegas with Robert Redford and Woody Harrelson.
Moore and Ashton Kutcher recently split after a six-year marriage that ended badly with his alleged infidelities that generated tabloid headlines.
