Troubled actor Philip Seymour Hoffman had found himself in a love triangle not long before his drug overdose death, it was revealed today.
Writing in his private diaries, the 46-year-old Hollywood star talked about feeling ‘caught in between’ long-time girlfriend Mimi O’Donnell and another woman he had recently met.
Hoffman’s journal entries suggested that his relationship with his unidentified new paramour may have triggered his split from O’Donnell, who asked him to move out of their Manhattan home three months before his death.
Law enforcement sources told The New York Post’s Page Six that O’Donnell did not want Hoffman around their three young children while he was using drugs.
In his often incoherent ‘secret diaries,’ Hoffman had described being troubled by ‘demons,’ wrote about drug deals, and his struggle to overcome his addiction with Narcotics Anonymous meetings.
Some of the entries appear to have been written while in rehab for heroin abuse, while others are scrambled and illegible, with sentences running into each other as though he was high when he put pen to paper.
