Demi Moore is currently facing tabloid rumors that Ashton Kutcher had an affair with 23-year-old Sara Leal, but that isn’t enough for In Touch, which reports the actress is dealing with much “deeper, darker troubles” – such as alcohol addiction.

According to the mag, “Her partying has gotten so out of control that her loved ones are begging her to check into rehab.” The tab quotes a supposed “friend” of the actress as saying, “Demi is a complete mess,” explaining, “The last year or so of her life has been a downward spiral, and she’s being urged to face her demons.”

Another alleged “insider” tells In Touch that Moore’s drinking problem became evident this summer, when she would greet workers renovating her house “sloppy-drunk” nearly every morning. “She would be drunk to the point of sexy dancing and passing out,” the supposed “insider” claims, noting, “The workers were embarrassed for Ashton.”

So what’s driving Moore to reportedly booze it up? The mag says she’s hitting the bottle because “the pressure to look young and hot — and keep Ashton interested” has become too much for her. Another so-called friend tells the tab, “Champagne is her drink of choice. But some of her friends suspect she’s also been taking pills,” adding, “Her behavior is getting more and more disturbing.”

No, what’s disturbing is In Touch‘s egregiously false reporting. Moore does NOT have a drinking problem, and this baseless story is just the tabloid’s way of insinuating itself into the current hype around her and Kutcher’s marriage in order to sell magazines. A source close to the actress tells Gossip Cop, “This is definitely not true.”
