This is not the first time the
actress has been rushed to hospital and in 2008 a 911 call was made by
her doctor who said she had tried to ‘commit suicide’, however it was
later denied that this was the case.

In June of that year the mother-of-one checked into a medical facility to see treatment for anxiety and depression.

Three months later the actress was arrested for driving under the influence of prescription drugs and she had to be helped from her police car.
