Philip Seymour Hoffman knew he was going to die
Sadly, Philip Seymour Hoffman knew what was about to happen to him. The actor was on a heroin binge 6 weeks before he died. According to TMZ, the Oscar winning actor told friends he feared he would die.
In late 2013, Hoffman told his pals he had started injecting himself with heroin and couldn’t stop it. The actor said he was only able to kick it for a few days only to relapse. He even went to AA, but it didn’t work. Apparently, one friend asked him how bad his problem was. “If I don’t stop I know I’m gonna die”, he said.
Mimi O’Donnell said she talked to the actor at 2 pm on January 1 and she described him to police as “high”. Later, he failed to pick up his son Cooper, 10 and daughters Tallulah, 7 and Willa, 5 from playground. He was found dead in his apartment on February 2.
The actor was also drinking excessively.
The rumor has it, the actor and his assistant Isabella Wing-Davey were romantically involved. The cellphone message on Wing-Davey’s phone asks callers to leave a message for “Bella Wing-Davey and Phil”. But Meg Gibson who worked with both Hoffman and Wing-Davey insists they were just friends. Apparently, Wing-Davey was helping Hoffman to deal with his drug abuse. “They were friends, very good friends…she’s been by his side in the last two months with everything he’s been working on”, Gibson told The Daily News.
