After weeks of emotional breakdowns and a showdown with her estranged mother that almost landed the older woman in handcuffs earlier this month, Heidi Montag is on the verge of taking her own life, worried pals tell England’s Now Magazine.
According to friends of the surgically-altered reality villainess, Heidi has been secretly battling depression and an addiction to painkillers since undergoing more than 12 surgical procedures in two years. The emotionally-fragile blonde is particularly disturbed by the way the public perceives her, says a tipster, who suspects her reputation as a spoiled psycho may finally be taking its tow on one-half of Speidi:
“The way people treat me, I may as well be dead,” the flopped singer allegedly recently cried to a friend.
“Heidi hates herself, which is why she’s got into this mess,” an insider tells Now. “No matter how many times she goes under the knife, it doesn’t take away from the fact she’s the same insecure person underneath. She’s doped up to her eyes on painkillers and has terrible mood swings.”
Those close to her are hoping a stint in rehab will help Mrs. Pratt sort our her emotions.
“Heidi’s completely addicted, which has everyone worried sick…We think it’s the painkillers. We want her to go to rehab before it’s too late.”
