Smokey And The Pill Bandit

73-year-old Burt Reynolds is in a Florida rehab facility, because he just can’t stop getting hongray for painkillers.

The National Enquirer reports that Burt was forced into rehab after he was taken to the crazy house last month. A source says that Burt was found bloody and dizzy in his home after he fell down due to too much boozing and pill-popping. Burt was taken to the hospital, but he started to bring the crazy, so they checked him into a mental facility. The mental hospital would only release Burt if he went to rehab. And there he is.

Burt’s manager wouldn’t confirm the rumor about the mental hospital, but they did release this statement:

After a recent back surgery, Mr. Reynolds felt like he was going through hell and after a while, realized he was a prisoner of prescription pain pills. He checked himself into rehab in order to regain control of his life. Mr. Reynolds hopes his story will help others in a similar situation. He hopes they will not try to solve the problem by themselves, but realize that sometimes it is too tough to do on their own and they should seek help, as he did.
