MICHAEL WEATHERLY OVER­DOSE HOR­ROR!

Sis­ter’s rot­ting corpse found in drug tragedy

-

EM­BAT­TLED Bull star Michael Weatherly has been har­bor­ing a shameful se­cret — his booz­ing sis­ter was liv­ing in squalor and died from a drug over­dose in a filthy pigsty!

The 50-year-old ac­tor, who’s at the cen­ter of a damning sex­ual ha­rass­ment scan­dal for his crude com­ments to for­mer co-star Eliza Dushku, has never pub­licly dis­cussed his late half-sis­ter Nan Breck­en­ridge — mom of This Is Us ac­tress Alexan­dra Breck­en­ridge.

But an ex­clu­sive GLOBE in­ves­ti­ga­tion has un­cov­ered the tragic truth be­hind 47-yearold Nan’s death eight years ago in her trash-strewn L.A. home, fol­low­ing a long bat­tle with the bot­tle.

Ac­cord­ing to the of­fi­cial coro­ner’s re­port — which la­beled trou­bled Nan a “chronic al­co­holic” — cops dis­cov­ered her de­com­pos­ing body in a mag­got-in­fested kitchen and her cause of death was cited as imipramine in­tox­i­ca­tion, a fa­tal dose of a medicine of­ten used to treat de­pres­sion.

“She seemed to live a vagabond life­style with fre­quent moves be­tween de­pressed neigh­bor­hoods and cheap ac­com­mo­da­tions,” states the coro­ner’s re­port, which did not cite any sign of foul play.

Michael has wres­tled with his own drink­ing demons — he was busted for DUI in 2015, got three years’ pro­ba­tion and was sent to an al­co­hol treat­ment pro­gram.

But the rev­e­la­tions about Nan’s heart­break­ing end fol­low the shock­ing news that CBS big­wigs paid

38-year-old

Dushku $9.5 mil­lion to hush up Weatherly’s creepy be­hav­ior on the Bull set!

Dushku says 48 hours af­ter she com­plained to the ac­tor about his rude re­marks, she was writ­ten off the show!

Now in­sid­ers say Weatherly him­self may be fac­ing the ax — even though he apol­o­gized for his be­hav­ior!
