Sources told the gossip site that Zac has been doing cocaine for more than two years and was also into Molly – most commonly used in pressed pills Ecstasy. In March he got professional help and left California to stay in a private residence where he received intensive outpatient care for several weeks.
In April he returned to L.A. and began shooting Neighbors. During filming Zac had a relapse and was not showing up.
An insider told People, “He surrounds himself with a group that enjoys partying. He got caught up in the partying lifestyle the past few years.”
Another insider said, “He would make sure that his friends surrounded him and was clearly concerned with his privacy … almost to a paranoid level.”
Perez Hilton says a friend revealed, “Zac is really good at keeping it together. He’s a huge control freak and has always been obsessed with keeping his partying on the down low, this getting out is his worst nightmare. He cares so much about keeping his private life private.”
Last year Efron said, “The stakes are very high. I care too much about those around me and everything I’ve worked for to just go out and blow it. It’s just a personal integrity.”
