This is a bit of a surprise: Gerard Butler has been in rehab for the past three weeks.
He’s seeking treatment for substance abuse at the Betty Ford Center, according to TMZ.
So what were Gerard’s vice of choice? “Butler realized he was relying too much on prescription drugs and decided to head off a full-blown addiction by entering Betty Ford…Butler also developed issues with cocaine, but the root problem appears to be the injuries and pain management,” reports TMZ.
Butler’s problems kicked in 2006 from the stress of shooting 300, and then he got hooked on pain pills after suffering injuries.
Demi Moore isnt’t the only troubled member of her family.
The star’s half-brother, James Craig Harmon (they have the same father) is serving “a decade-long jail sentence” in Texas for attacking his former fiancée in 2005, reports Starmagazine. He’s not due to be released until 2015.

Demi’s brother, 38, has also been locked up on drug and gun possession charges. .
Whitney Houston‘s body arrived in New Jersey Monday night — and her funeral will be Friday at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., according to NJ.com.
Prudential Center in Newark, Whitney’s hometown, holds 18,500 people. Despite the venue’s large size, the service will reportedly be private. A wake on Thursday is also reportedly being considered. Whitney’s body was transported late Monday from L.A.’s Van Nuys Airport to Teterboro airport in New Jersey via private jet.
Whigham Funeral Home in Newark will be handling the funeral arrangements, as it has before with the Houston family: Whigham handled the funeral for Houston’s father in 2003, as well as the one for Arthur Lee Warrick, the mother of Dionne Warwick, Houston’s cousin, and for Ann Drinkard Moss, a legend in the gospel community and Cissy Houston’s sister.
The family hasn’t announced any funeral plans themselves.
The cause of death hasn’t been cited, and toxicology reports could take up to six weeks.
It’s been revealed which prescription drugs Whitney Houston consumed: Xanax, Lorazepam, Valium — all often used to treat anxiety and depression. She also took a sleeping medication.
Whitney had “a plethora of sedatives including Lorazepam, Valium, Xanax, and a sleeping medication that was found in her hotel room,” a law enforcement source tells RadarOnline. The prescription drugs were taken into custody by the Beverly Hills Police Department.
Meanwhile, sources tell TMZ that Whitney took Xanax “before big performances … like the pre-Grammy party she was scheduled to perform.. Whitney believed the Xanax helped calm her nerves before going out in front of people.” It remains unclear if Whitney took Xanax on Saturday.
Sad but true: Simon Cowell was slated to meet with X-Factor honchos on Monday to discuss bringing Whitney Houston on the show as a judge.
“We were ironically going to meet on Monday and of course, one of the names we were going to be talking about in that meeting as a possible mentor on the new series of X Factor was going to be Whitney Houston,” Cowell told CNN’s Piers Morgan Saturday night, just hours after Whitney had died at the Beverly Hilton.
The Hollywood Reporter had reported that Whitney was keen on such a gig, and Cowell echoed that sentiment: “The rumors that had got back to us…and that’s often what happens when people want to be on these shows, somebody tells someone to get the word out, it’s normally a sign that they are interested,” Cowell said.
He added, “Given the choice, I would have liked to have taken her under my wing as well, because she would have been the ultimate, ultimate mentor to any contestant coming on the show.”
Looks like Demi Moore has some celeb-worthy company in rehab.
Charlie Sheen‘s ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, is at Utah’s Cirque Lodge, where Demi is, reports X17.
Brooke was arrested for cocaine possession last December in Aspen, and has been at the facility for several weeks, unlike relative newcomer Demi.
A source told X17 of Brooke, “[She] is in treatment and doing fine. She doesn’t seem too stressed or worried about it. You can tell she’s been through this before. Honestly, she’ll get through it and she knows there’s a good chance this won’t be her last time in rehab.”
