Tatum O’Neal Seeking Treatment For Cocaine Or Meds?

1545

Tatum O’Neal’s representative has claimed that the actress has checked into a drug rehab center for help with prescription painkillers after her back surgery.

There were rumors that O’Neal had relapsed after a cocaine binge.

A source told RadarOnline.com, “Tatum made the decision to voluntarily check into rehab after having a relapse about a month ago when she began using cocaine again.”

But Tatum’s rep reveals the star was taking precautions to make certain she wasn’t becoming hooked on painkillers she was given after surgery.

The rep said, “Tatum O’Neal has had back issues, had back surgery and went to a place that could supervise her use of prescribed painkillers until the pain had subsided. She will always seek supervision when taking prescription medication that has addictive potential.”

Tatum, 48, has a history of drug abuse but insists that is all behind her after kicking her cocaine habit, following her 2008 arrest for cocaine possession.

Drug addiction definitely runs in her family. Her half-brother, Redmond O’Neal, is in court-ordered rehab for heroin possession after his arrest in August.
