News first broke a few weeks ago that Zac Efron had completed a stint in rehab five months ago, and it turns out that the actor has been hanging out in Peru since it all went public. As such, Zac’s social media presence has considerably dropped off, and our concern level has spiked accordingly. But never fear, Zac fans! The 25-year-old High School Musical alum just posted a snapshot from his adventure abroad along with a heartwarming message for his supporters:
“Hey guys! Just returned from an incredible trip to Peru with my dad and wanted to thank you all for your support these past few weeks...means the world to me. Love you guys! - Z”
How nice is that, right? We’re so relieved to hear Zac’s feeling good; he sure looks healthy in that amazing backpacking photo!
Plus, Zac says he was totally just kicking it with Pops, which makes us think those raging in South America rumors are just rumors. Sightseeing and snapping pictures at Machu Picchu is a much better way to spend your time post-rehab.
According to a TMZ report from earlier this month, Zac has long struggled with addiction particularly to cocaine and molly. After realizing he needed outside help to break the cycle, Zac checked into a rehab facility. His second stay was reportedly for a relapse that occurred after production wrapped on Seth Rogen's Neighbors. Let’s hope it’s all smooth sailing from her for the globetrotter!
