Furlong's Ex Begs Him to Clean Up

ByABC News

May 10, 2001 -- Rumors of drug problems continue to dog troubled young actor Edward Furlong, who has allegedly re-entered a detox facility, for the second time in a year.

According to the New York Post's Page Six, Furlong wanted one last hurrah before going back to dry out. The gaunt 23-year-old was allegedly rushed to the ER last month after friends found him unconscious in a pool of vomit; shortly after being admitted, he reportedly received a visit from pals who smuggled drugs to his hospital bedside.

Furlong's ex from his early acting days, Jackie Domac, tells Page Six she arrived at the hospital wanting to convince the Terminator 2 star to go back to rehab. Furlong, who spent a month at a California treatment center last fall, did not want to check into a facility until he could get high one last time, Domac claims. Frustrated, she allegedly left the hospital just as his friends arrived with party supplies.

Domac — who was Furlong's tutor before they became involved when he was just 14 — says she later tracked the "barely conscious" actor down at the Los Angeles airport, where she apparently put him on a plane to rehab that night.

Furlong, who has also dated New York party girl Paris Hilton and actress Natasha Lyonne, is set to star in Terminator 3, which is currently on hold until the film finds a director.
