Demi Moore was rushed to hospital on Tuesday night to be treated for exhaustion. The 49-year-old actress, who has appeared increasingly frail in recent weeks after calling off her marriage to Ashton Kutcher, was taken to hospital by ambulance following a call to 911.

The star's spokesperson said the actress is seeking 'professional assistance' after the stresses of recent months. However, showbiz website TMZ is claiming the actress is being treated for 'substance abuse'.
The news emerged as her young husband, from whom she is estranged, was pictured enjoying a beer as he partied with friends at a Bruno Mars gig in Brazil.
According to TMZ, the actress was assessed at home before being taken to a local hospital. Representatives for the star refused to directly comment on the substance abuse allegations.
But a spokesperson for the star said, "Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health. She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends."
