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
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!
