HOLLYWOOD celebrity Demi Moore has been rushed to hospital with sources claiming substance abuse as the issue.

Gossip website TMZ.com reported the star - who recently split from her husband Ashton Kutcher - was taken to hospital around 10.45pm on Monday.

Sources said she was seeking treatment for substance abuse.

Moore's representative confirmed to TMZ Moore was committed to "getting well".

"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," the rep said.

"She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends."

Moore's daughter Rumer Willis has reportedly "begged'' her mother to get help following her dramatic break-up from Kutcher.

Moore has been pictured looking increasingly frail lately. Sources have claimed her daughters with ex-husband Bruce Willis, Rumer, 23, Scout, 20 and Tallulah, 17, are eager for her to get help in order to ease her turmoil.

"Rumer begged her to consider getting help, but Demi thinks that's just for drug abusers and alcoholics. Rumer even asked Bruce to intervene as he and Demi are close,'' a source told UK magazine Closer.

"She says she's dealing with the break-up as best she can, but it's obviously badly knocked her confidence.''

Moore has lost a startlingly amount of weight since her split from Kutcher. A source close to the star says she is struggling to maintain a healthy appetite.

"Demi's hardly eaten a meal in months and she's barely managing three hours' sleep a night,'' the insider revealed.

"It's giving her terrible headaches. She had eye problems as a child as it gets worse with stress."
