Date: 27th April 2001
Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) star EDWARD FURLONG was rushed to the emergency room of CEDARS SINAI MEDICAL CENTER with a suspected drug overdose.
Furlong was admitted on Tuesday (24APR01) and released on Thursday (26APR01). The hospital would not comment on his condition. Partygoers said that Furlong showed up at the WHISKEY on Sunset Boulevard to catch a performance by the band DEADSY.
His ex-girlfriend, PARIS HILTON, was there partying with JARED LETO, COURTNEY WAGNER and SAMANTHA KLUGE (reunited with her husband RICHIE BIRKENHEAD), and Furlong showed up with a "very beautiful" dark-haired woman. A witness said, "Furlong and Hilton didn't seem to have much to talk about as she is still sober and he is not." Later on that night, Furlong was found sitting dazed on a step at the Whiskey next to his date. "He looked like hell - he either had a lot of goth make-up on, or his undereye circles were horrific," said the onlooker. "He was completely out of it."
Later still, Furlong was found by his date lying in a pool of vomit and taken to Cedars. Furlong, 23, has had a long history of substance abuse, which spiralled out of control last fall when he hit the New York party circuit with indefatigable hotel heiress Paris. She reportedly joined Alcoholics Anonymous and has been sober for several months. (PDD/WNWCPS)
