[Blind Gossip] Remember when Johnny Depp’s team claimed that he had injured his hand in a go kart accident in Australia?
Your friends at Blind Gossip told you that the go kart story was not true at all.
There was no go kart. Johnny Depp actually cut his hand indoors in a drunken fight. The truth did not come out until many months later.
Today we’re going to tell you about another star who suffered a medical emergency. You were told a lie about him as well. We are going to tell you what really happened.
You may be wondering why this young American actor is spending so much time in a foreign country.
To explain this, we’re going to have to go back in time a few months.
Our actor was filming a project in Foreign Country 1.
There was a medical incident. A very serious one.
He was rushed to the local hospital.
His case was so severe that they decided he would be better off being transferred to another hospital in a larger, neighboring country with better facilities to treat him.
He was subsequently airlifted to Foreign Country 2.
However, when news leaked that something had happened to the actor, his team had to come up with a story. So they took a page from the Johnny Depp playbook.
While Johnny Depp’s team lied about the cause of his medical emergency, our actor’s team had to lie about the nature of the medical emergency itself.
Their story sounded plausible. And it kept the media at bay.
Except… it was not true.
Not even close.
So… what was the real medical emergency?
Our actor had been seizuring.
Because he had OD’ed.
We did not know if he was going to make it. It was literally a life-and-death situation. Our hospital isn’t really equipped to handle such severe cases of c*caine overdoses and seizures so they airlifted him to [Foreign Country 2].
We’re going to skip the technical parts about status epilepticus and convulsive versus non-convulsive seizures and the various treatments used.
Suffice to say that our actor’s condition was critical, they did not know if he was going to make it, and transferring him to the second hospital in Foreign Country 2 may have saved his life.
After the initial OD emergency was over and he was stabilized, our young actor immediately went into recovery.
His recovery is going fine, but this is not his first relapse, so everyone agreed he needed to stay put for a while in Foreign Country 2 to get well.
In order to explain his extended absence from the United States, his team has offered up a series of excuses.
The latest excuse is that he has fallen in love in Foreign Country 2.
We’re sure many people will buy it.
Just not anyone who knows the truth.
Get well, Actor!

[Optional] Why does he keep relapsing?
He’s od’ing because he’s not emotionally equipped to handle his career, the positive/negative of it.
I kinda like him as he comes off as sweet and nice and wholesome tho’ slightly dim , despite the drugs/steroids. I think he got hooked onto steroids while filming for Baywatch. He doesnt look good bulked up though.
I couldn’t figure out why Zac’s story about staying in Australia seemed off, but this explains it. What’s sad is that every single commenter guessed him – this tragedy is clearly no secret to anyone, I, too, wish him well in his recovery.
I moved to Hollywood at 17 in search of an acting career, 1980.
While there was a lot of interest in me, folks freaked that I had an earring, and
I was told in no uncertain terms to ditch it and pretend I was straight if I wanted
to make it.
I chose to be myself, and passed on the rest. It hurts my soul that 40 years later Efron
appears to be collapsing under the weight of the Hollywood closet, which has eaten away
at many a closeted actor’s mental health through the decades.
Zac Efron. I hope he gets the help he needs, but something about him tells me he’s going to be a Hollywood fatality. I just get that feeling.
Aww I hate this.. Zac Efron 🙁
Addiction is a horrible disease. Many people relapse several times before getting clean.
Zac Efron “getting sick” in Papua New Guinea
Why is he relapsing? The same reason why Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Cory Monteith, and countless others did. Addiction is insidious. Once it grabs a hold of you, it won’t let go.
Agent Orangey says
Story was he got an infection while filming in New guinea and had to be flown to Australia for treatment. Hope he keeps it clean this go around.
Zac Efron. He OD’ed in Papua New Guinea and was airlifted to Australia.
He keeps relapsing because he’s a drug addict and is (in all probability) surrounded by a posse of people who are all along for the free ride, so no one will call him on it.
Oh Zac efron, now in byron bay Australia, evacuated from Papua new Guinea. His team did a good job, the bacterial infection was quite believable. The story about the girlfriend he’s supposedly fallen in love with, not so much.
Zach Efron. Been spending an AWFUL lot of time Down Under
Zac Efron was airlifted from Papua New Guinea to Australia.
Opt- He isn’t living his best life. He is probably fed up of hiding the fact he is gay
Actor: Zac Efron
He’s staying in Australia because he is “in love” with a waitress *eyeroll*.
Optional: he’s having trouble dealing with his sexuality
Get well Zac x
Zac Efron and his PNG flight to Brisbane Australia late last year. Still in Australia and rumoured to be buying and settling in Byron Bay.
Not sure why but perhaps a new start is a good idea in a new country.
He keeps relapsing because he’s an actor in Hollywood
Holy crap Zac Efron??!!! Mind blownn!
Oh Zac Efron, you were my last heartthrob crush😻😿 this is too bad his adventure show is interesting. I thought he was doing well. The Australia gf thing is weird. I saw he is torn on leaving. That seemed off. My brother in law works in the business, worked on one of his movies about five years ago, and says he’s cool and down to earth in real life. Get Well Link💪🏼💪🏼
Zac Efron. Sad.
Actor: Zac Efron
[Optional] Why does he keep relapsing? He obviously needs help, wish him the best!
hmmmm that guy from high school musical zac efron hasn’t he been 9in a foreiegn country??
Oh, this is Zac Efron, who is now hanging out in Byron Bay, Australia.
His story of coming down with a bacterial infection in p.n.g. then being life flighted to Australia sounds eerily similar to this
Shalaka I says
Zac Efron of course
Zach Efron…he now lives in Australia……with his new love 😉
Zac Efron. He probably doesn’t realize he has a problem.
Is this Zac Efron? He’s been spending a lot of time in Australia.
Oh no poor Zac Efron. Sounds like he OD’d in a small South Pacific or Southeast Asian country perhaps during the filming of his new show and they had to hospitalize him in Australia. I sincerely hope he recovers well. Maybe it will do him good to live there for awhile for a fresh start anyway.
Zac Efron. Country 2 is Australia.
Enablers, not significant enough treatment, people pushing him to get back to work, etc.
Zac Efron. From Papua New Guinea to Australia.
Why does he keep relapsing? Who knows really? Stress? A desire to destroy himself and his ‘image’ of a former teen star? Surrounding himself with people who only like him for $$. Its very sad really. Reminds me of the wreck George Michael became.
I really hope Zac Efron can get his act together. Except for his self-destructive tendencies, he seems like an ok guy and Lord knows Hollywood could use a few more nice guys.
He is an addict.
Zach Efron? Just a guess
Not sure, probably the same old story: gorgeous underage male actor molested by Hollywood creeps.
Bc coke is fun?
Actor: Zac Efron
Hope he gets the help he needs. His last Netflix show, showed how much he wants out of the Hollywood lifestyle
Definitely Zac Efron, who has been in Australia a LOT recently.
so snazzy says
He was filming in New Guinea and airlifted to Australia in December, and it was reported he contracted typhoid or some other kind of bacterial infection.
Hope he recovers and manages to stay clean.
Awww. Poor Zac Efron.
I don’t think he will ever get clean if he is in Hollywood. Too much pressure.
Zac Efron, who has been in Australia and has allegedly fallen for some chick there. Probably OD’d in Thailand or some other country in SE Asia.
Keeps relapsing cause he’s an addict and rolls with the wrong crowd. Hopefully The Rock has reached out to help Zac help himself.
Addiction is a *. That is so sad, I was really hopeful for him.
Zac Efron. My guess is sobriety is hard!
Zac Efron! These celebs relapse because they have plenty of money for drugs. Why can’t they be more productive with their time?
Zac Efron. Recovering from addition is H A R D. Staying recovered is even harder. I hope he succeeds. I wish him well.
Op- very sad… hope recovery works this time.
Actor: Zac Efron
The only person I can think of is Zac Efron who has spent quite a bit of time in Australia lately, I believe.
I don’t know what his situation is. I do however wish him well – our daughter who is now a senior in high school loved the ‘High School Musical’ movies when she was little!
Zac Effron is still in Australia.
Zac Efron. I hope he can get the help he needs and stay sober.
oh zac efron
he was in new guinea filming and had to be rushed to australia..
poor guy needs to be held accountable. he has too many people covering for him .
Zac Efron. Hope he finds some peace before they can’t bring him back.
Country 1: Papua New Guinea
Country 2: Australia
the “Greatest Showman” star contracted a “form of typhoid or similar bacterial infection” and had to be rushed to hospital in what was called a “life-or-death flight” to be treated by medical experts…..Was the excuse given.
He’s surrounded by enablers using him to make money……that’s why keeps relapsing!
He keeps relapsing because he’s in the closet and he’s starting to crack from living an inauthentic life. Be who you are Zac! Embrace yourself and the world will also!
everybody who keeps relapsing needs a very long therapy, because their have massive problems that are a reason for the addiction , and not an addiction because they used some substances and got addicted.
Actor: Zac Efron
[Optional] Why does he keep relapsing? Filling a void, probably.
He was shooting “Killing Zac Efron” in Papua New Guinea and apparently (according to his team) had typhoid related illness and was transferred to Australia.
He’s still here living in Byron Bay and apparently fell in love with the country and also with a local girl who was working at cafe.
Zac Efron staying Down Under!
He relapses because he has a mental condition that when it is unrecognised or untreated he is of high risk for addictions etc. So the addiction is the symptom. Solving symptoms will only help for a short while. They need to look at his mental status!
Zac Efron. Wow. I’m actually shocked, thought he was into clean living and saving the planet and everything. Addiction is tough and I really hope he gets better for good.
Zac Efron – “in love” & thinking about moving to Australia
Don’t know why he keeps relapsing, but wish him the best.
Zac Efron, currently in Byron Bay and ‘in love’ with a local waitress.
(Byron Bay, Australia)
Not living his true life
Zac Efron was flown here to Australia from PNG
Actor: Handsome Zac Effron. Media was told he had contracted Typhoid Fever, and was transferred from New Guinea to Australia.
He keeps relapsing because he CAN. No one is keeping clean. His team is paid to keep him HAPPY. That’s the problem with celebs…no tough love, and surrounded by yes people.
Actor: Zac Efron
Zac Efron, he was flown from Papua New Guinea to Australia. He relapses because he is an addict. He suffered from a “form of typhoid or similar bacterial infection.” They left out the cocaine OD.
Zac Efron! I’m also just reading that the show he was filming when he supposedly took ill was called “Killing Zac Efron.” Oy vey.
Oh really 😳?
The only one who fell in love in Australia is Zac Efron! * he needs help!
He keeps relapsing because he’s got a drug problem. That’s how it works, right?
Super sad if it’s him. He’s such a talented guy and he’s still so young. I watched my brother descend into addiction and it was seriously the saddest thing I’ve ever experienced. He’s like a shadow of his former self. It just decimated his brain. Addiction is like emotional napalm for the person and everyone who loves them.
Optional: He keeps relapsing because addiction is hard to kick. It’s not uncommon for some people to fall off the wagon but the amount of times they fall off varies from person to person.
Zac Efron. Papua New Guinea to Australia. Filming Killing Zac Efron.
Zac Efron! There’s been a recent headline about him wanting to get engaged and move to Australia in order to be closer to his girlfriend. The Johnny Depp incident in Australia is the hint.
Optional: Some people seek the high and get bored when their lives are too easy/stable, until they hit rock bottom they won’t learn. Hopefully Zac will learn his lesson this time
Zac Efron. Airlifted from Papua New Guinea to Australia after a medical emergency.
Zac Efron and having to be sent to Australia to recover from injury while shooting his reality show
Zac Efron, currently living in Australia after being airlifted there from Papua New Guinea.
Hope he gets the help he needs!
Optional: I’ve been fortunate enough to not have dealt with addiction in any way, so my guess is as good as anyone’s. But either way, I wish him well. Addiction is not something easily overcome.
Zac Efron – happend while filming in Papua New Guinea and rushed to Australia.
Currently “dating” former waitress turned now “It-Girl” Vanessa ….
Get well, Zac!
and if you don’t like your actual life, change it, come out and enjoy your freedom….
He’s probably surrounded by yes men
Zac Efron, Australia! He’s supposedly in love with a new girlfriend. Yup, and I’m the Queen of England!!
Supposedly contracted a bacterial infection or a typhoid like disease in Papua New Guinea and was later transferred to Brisbane, Australia..the disease description was so vague.. Seriously, is there any Disney teenage star living a drug free normal life now?
