He was gone before we ever even knew he was there: After checking himself in only three weeks ago, Gerard Butler left the Betty Ford Center this morning, his manager confirms.
The 300 actor was reportedly seeking treatment for an addiction to pain killers and (possibly) cocaine. The news comes as a shock to “Real Housewife” Brandi Glanville, who, after losing husband Eddie Cibrian to Leann Rimes, now must accept the fact that she lost Butler to Betty Ford.
The actor began experiencing intense pains after suffering on-set injuries while filming 300. Compounded with another injury sustained while surfing, Butler began to develop a dependence on his prescription medications.
Sources claim that, while Butler did not actually have a full-blown addiction, the star chose to seek treatment before the problem became any worse (i.e. before he had sex with any other Bravo reality TV stars).
