Tatum O’Neal Allegedly Suicidal, Threatened to Jump Off Balcony
Tatum o’neal reportedly suicidal at a Los Angeles area home, so cops responded and she was taken into psychiatric detention … law enforcement sources told TMZ.
We were told that police and firefighters responded to a call for a suicidal person last month, after Tatum allegedly threatened to jump from a balcony.
Our sources say the “Bad News Bears” star was rushed to a local hospital after help arrived, and was ultimately placed on psychiatric hold for further evaluation.
It’s a pretty frightening situation, especially given Tatum’s well-documented struggles over the years with addiction.
As you know … Tatum struggled with drug issues after she split from her ex-husband John McEnroe in 1992.
Tatum, the youngest Oscar-winning actress, ended up cleaning up and getting her life back, but in 2008 she was arrested for allegedly trying to mark drugs. Other than that, she has remained sober in all respects.
We have contacted Tatum reps … so far no word in return.
Our sincere thanks to
