According to TMZ, Gerard has struggled with pain management since shooting the film 300 in 2006, and he realized that he was becoming too dependent on prescription painkillers. Supposedly to "head off a full-blown addiction," he decided to get help recently at the Betty Ford Center.

There are also whispers that Gerard may have supposedly had issues with cocaine as well, which is not exactly an uncommon problem in Hollywood circles. Help! I'm In Love With A Drunk
