Hollywood actor Gerard Butler has reportedly checked into the Betty Ford Centre in Los Angeles to seek help for substance abuse issues.
It is thought that the 42-year-old star was getting increasingly concerned about his increasing reliance on prescription painkillers, which started back in 2006.
Gerard’s issues started shortly after shooting the action movie 300 and last December his back pain was made even worse when he suffered a surfing accident.
As a result he starting to rely on pain medication and decided to check into a clinic before the situation got worse.
