Demi Moore was rushed to hospital last night and is being treated for exhaustion.

The 49-year-old actress, who has appeared increasingly frail in recent weeks, was taken to a health facility by ambulance just before 11pm last night.

Demi is also said to have pulled out of filming a cameo in the film Lovelace, according to reports.

However TMZ are reporting that the actress is being treated for substance abuse.

Representatives for the star refused to comment on the allegations.

According to the website a 911 call was placed at 10:45pm last night which resulted in an ambulance taking the star to hospital.

The site also reports that Demi will now no longer be appearing in the film about porn star Linda Lovelace.

Demi's frail and gaunt and appearance in recent weeks has caused considerable concern.

The actress, who announced she was divorcing husband Ashton Kutcher last November, has lost a considerable amount of weight over the past four months.

Demi last appeared in public on January 14 at the Cinema For Peace event at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills.

Her frail appearance shocked fans, although she appears to have been loosing weight steadily since claims emerged Ashton had cheated on her with 22-year-old Sara Leal.

Demi, who looked a shadow of her former self, wore a slim fitting black dress which showed just how much weight she had lost from her usually toned physique.

On November 17 2011, Demi announced that she was filing for divorce from her toyboy husband after six years of marriage.

In a statement she said: 'It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton.

'As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life.'

While Demi is seeking treatment her estranged husband is currently in Sao Paulo where he has been attending the Fashion Week.

Yesterday the actor shared a snap of himself joking around pretending to surf on a street during a spot of rain.

The Two And A Half Men star is also said to have moved on following the breakdown of his marriage to Demi.

He is now reportedly dating screenwriter Lorene Scafaria, who, at 33, is his own age.

The pair spent Christmas together in Europe.

Earlier this month Demi was seen in a parking lot with a 26-year-old actor and personal trainer Blake Corl-Baietti.

Her reps refused to comment on speculation that the actress was in a relationship with the younger man.

Demi recently opened up about her fears and heartache in an interview with US Harper's Bazaar.

She admitted: ‘What scares me is that I’m going to ultimately find out at the end of my life that I’m really not lovable, that I’m not worthy of being loved.

'That there’s something fundamentally wrong with me.’

As well as speaking out about her anxieties, Moore also opened up about her body image.

The actress – who went through a gruelling fitness regime for her role in GI Jane – admitted to having a ‘love-hate relationship’ with her body but said she had a more positive view of it now compared to her feelings in the past.

She said: ‘I sit today in a place of greater acceptance of my body and that includes not just my weight but all of the things that come with your changing body as you as age to now experiencing my body as extremely thin.’

Demi added: ‘Thin in a way that I never imagined somebody would be saying to me, “You’re too thin, and you don’t look good.”'
