David Arquette has checked himself into rehab.
The 39-year-old actor – who has attracted attention with his partying since announcing in October he had separated from wife Courteney Cox Arquette – decided to enter the facility in California on Saturday (01.01.11) after a wild New Year’s Eve (31.12.10).
A friend said: “He was drinking too much. Once he drank too much, he became somebody he didn’t like.” Another friend added the star is struggling to cope since his marriage broke down and revealed no one is surprised at his decision to seek help.
The pal said: “He is in there for drinking and depression, not hard drugs. Rehab was inevitable. He is dealing with a broken heart. He can’t handle all the changes in his life. All his inner demons came out.”
Former ‘Friends’ star Courteney – who has a six-year-old daughter, Coco, with David – praised his decision to seek help for his problems.
She is quoted by People magazine as saying: “I really admire David and his choice to take charge and better his life. I love and support him.”
David recently admitted he was finding the split traumatic and had turned to alcohol to cope.
He said: “I’ve been drinking a lot. But I don’t want to go into all that, because it’s really a personal, traumatic thing.
“Everybody’s worried and concerned about me. When I drink, I become a maniac.
“This is the hardest thing anyone has to go through. You wake up and the reality hits you.”
