Demi Moore "seeks professional assistance" for health issues and exhaustion.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES  (REUTERS) - Actress Demi Moore is seeking professional help to treat "exhaustion" and "overall health" issues, her spokeswoman said on Tuesday (January 24), following her split late last year from husband of six years, Ashton Kutcher.

"Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health. She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends," Moore's spokeswoman said in a statement to Reuters.

The statement follows media reports that Moore was rushed to hospital on Monday (January 23) night after paramedics were called to her Los Angeles home. Celebrity news website TMZ.com cited substance abuse as the cause, but that could not be confirmed.

Moore's representatives declined any further comment beyond the written statement.

Moore filed for divorce from Kutcher in November 2011, after a San Diego woman went public about a brief fling she had with Kutcher.
