His marriage may not have worked out, but Ashton Kutcher may not be a complete jackass. He’s reached out to his estranged wife since she left her nearly month-long stint in rehab last week and the the duo has been in close contact.
Demi quietly and briefly returned to her Beverly Hills home, spending just a few days in L.A. before embarking on a recuperative vacation to Turks and Caicos.
During that window, she received a visit from Kutcher.
“He came to her house to see her for about an hour and a half,” a source told E! News.
The couple is getting along well, although they’re showing no signs that they’ll be back to any romantic habits. A source says that a reconciliation is unlikely.
But that doesn’t mean Ashton may not drop by again.
Kutcher remains on friendly terms with his ex, and is “determined to build upon that,” however, her daughters are “no longer close” to their former stepdad.
Demi Moore has checked out of Cirque Lodge in Utah and has embarked on a private vacation, sources tell E! News.
The actress checked into this famous rehab facility not long after suffering a seizure on January 23 that was brought on by the ingestion of a foreign substance. (Listen to the 911 call placed on her behalf now.)
What is the actress up to now? Not much.
“She’s in no rush to get back to L.A.,” says an insider who reports the star is “on vacation” and adds: “She’s on total lockdown and only talking to a small group of people.”
There’s still no official word on why Moore was seeking help, but E! moles confirm the time away was spent working on addiction issues and an eating disorder. We sincerely hope it helped.
According to an E! News insider, the troubled actress – who was rushed to the hospital on January 23 for “smoking something,” based on the 911 call placed on her behalf – has checked in to Cirque Lodge, an expensive treatment facility in Sundance, Utah.
“She’s on total lockdown and only talking to a small group of people,” the source says, adding that the actress is being treated for an eating disorder and addiction issues.
Moore had reportedly been consulting with her spiritual adviser and, some claimed, even a psychic before making this decision.
Cirque Lodge, meanwhile, is known as a posh facility whose resume of famous clientele includes Lindsay Lohan, Eva Mendes and Mary-Kate Olsen.
It’s official, very, very, very official: Demi Lovato is all grown up.
The 19-year old is the latest celebrity to strike a few sexy, unique poses for Tyler Shields, the photographer who has also snapped Lindsay Lohan with a gun and Mischa Barton with a steak.
In this instance, Shields lined Lovato up with a lollipop and with some smashed glass, among other shots. And he wrote of the pictorial: “I have received more emails asking me to release this shoot than any other shoot I have ever done. Lovatics are dedicated fans!”
They sure are. Sit back and browse through the photos of Demi now:
Enjoy Demi Lovato on Twitter while you can, folks. It’s unclear how long we’ll have her here.
About a week after the singer announced a break from the social network, she returned on January 27 in order to answer a few fans questions via Seventeen magazine. (She also dispelled a rumor that she had relapsed into rehab, Tweeting to not “believe the hype” and saying “All is well!”)
Among the topics covered in Demi’s Twitter-based interview:
The next single from her album will be “Give Your Heart a Break.”
Her favorite role models include Kelly Clarkson, Eva Longoria and Rosario Dawson.
She likes most about her fans the fact that they “stick by [her] through everything.
Her biggest life lesson has been to never lose oneself.
While Demi Moore works to overcome her recent personal problems, we have an update on her professional life:
Sarah Jessica Parker has signed on to replace Moore as Gloria Steinem in Lovelace, the upcoming biopic centered around the life of 1970s porn star Linda Lovelace. Demi dropped out of the film almost immediately after being hospitalized earlier this week.
Parker joins a cast that includes Amanda Seyfried in the title role, along Peter Sarsgaard, Adam Brody, Juno Temple and Wes Bentley.
Moore, meanwhile, is out of the hospital. Her next move is unknown, but the 911 call placed on her behalf was released to the public today.
With Demi Moore out of Sherman Oaks Hospital in Los Angeles, more information on what exactly landed her there in the first place may come out tomorrow.
The 911 call placed on behalf of the actress this week will be made available on Friday, but with a major catch: following a review by the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office, numerous references from the call will be redacted because they refer to medical conditions and could violate privacy laws.
All we know at the moment is that a witness described Moore as appearing to suffer a “seizure” on Tuesday night and she was therefore transported to the hospital to seek “professional assistance.”
The most reliable information so far states that Moore actually inhaled a dangerous amount of nitrous oxide, leading to an adverse reaction and a panicked call from a friend. What was the actress doing with a substance typically reserved for teenagers in their parents’ basement?
Let’s be honest: Ashton Kutcher is likely very concerned about Demi Moore.
The actor may have a wondering pecker, but his heart is not made out of coal. Kutcher and Moore were married for six years, after all.
But in light of his ex’s hospitalization this week, Ashton has remained silent. He’s spent the week in Brazil, attending a fashion show on Sunday in Sao Paulo, and didn’t give TMZ a comment last night when approached by a camera outside a nightclub.
But Kutcher – or his management team, we suppose – did oddly update his Twitter account this morning, linking to a story about journalists and bloggers that use “drone” cameras and writing:
Citizen journalists take to the sky.
Responded a follower to Ashton’s Tweet: Surprised this is where your focus is right now.
Demi Lovato Goes Off on Disney for Eating Disorder Joke
The folks at Disney forced Demi Lovato out of the Christmas spirit last night.
The former star of Sonny With a Chance – who left that series earlier this year to battle personal problems that included an eating disorder – took MAJOR exception to a joke on the Disney Channel show Shake It Up this week, as a character quipped:
“I could just eat you up, well if I ate.”
The line promoted the following Tweets from Lovato:
I find it really funny how a company can lose one of their actress’ from the pressures of an EATING DISORDER and yet still make joke about that very disease…
And is it just me or are the actress’ [on Disney Channel] getting THINNER AND THINNER…. I miss the days of RAVEN, and LIZZIE MCGUIRE…
Dear Disney Channel, EATING DISORDERS ARE NOT SOMETHING TO JOKE ABOUT.
The network, meanwhile, has actually responded and agreed with Lovato, releasing the following statement:
“We hear you & are pulling both episodes as quickly as possible & reevaluating them … It’s NEVER our intention to make light of eating disorders!”
Way to go, Demi! And happy holidays! Go stuff your face. You’ve earned it.
