The recording of the call shows that Demi’s reaction was in fact due to a substance that the actress had smoked.
An emergency call was recorded at the 49-year-old actress’ house Monday evening. Demi was rushed to a local hospital after a 30-minute assessment.
“We need an ambulance here as soon as possible,” a female caller tells the ambulance dispatcher. “She smoked something, it’s not marijuana, but it’s similar to incense, and she seems to be having convulsions of some sort.”
“She has been having some issues. I don’t know what she has been taking,” another woman at Moore’s house that night told the 911 dispatcher.
At one point, the woman is heard talking to Moore, saying, “Demi, can you hear me? Yes, she’s squeezing my hand. She can’t speak. She’s convulsing so we’re holding her down.”
When the operator asks the caller if this has happened before, she said, “I don’t know. There’s been some stuff recently that we’re all just finding out.”
Towards the end of the call, the actress seems to be getting back to her senses.
“She seems to have calmed down now. She’s speaking,” a man tells the operator.
The actress’ health deteriorated after the announcement of her divorce from Ashton Kutcher.
Her condition also forced her to abandon the set of the movie Lovelace, an indie drama that will look at the history of Linda Lovelace.
On Thursday, Moore returned home from the hospital.
