Former "Laguna Beach" and "The Hills" star Jason Wahler earned a reputation as a hard-partying rich kid who broke Lauren Conrad's heart, but his life was far more out of control than anyone realized at the time.
After multiple arrests and stays in rehab, including a season on "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew," Wahler is a recovering alcoholic, and revealed to InTouch that he's had some very dark days.
"I tried taking my life multiple times. About four years ago, I took more than 10 Antabuse [medication that can reduce the desire to drink] and was rushed to the hospital. It should’ve killed me," the 26-year-old told the magazine.
Wahler says he's been sober for three years, and claims he feels as though he found fame through his MTV reality shows just so he could share his story of how "deadly addiction can be."
And while Conrad, Wahler's ex-girlfriend and co-star, went on to find success beyond the show, other alums of "The Hills" learned that fame is a fickle mistress. The show's villains, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, ended up broke and living with Pratt's parents after blowing through $10 million.
