Actor Zac Efron was spotted in a Peru airport earlier this week, the first sighting since news of several drug rehab stints were revealed. The former “High School Musical” star caused a pandemonium at the airport.
Apparently the actor was traveling in the region for 9 days with his dad. He was spotted visiting the iconic Machu Picchu Incan ruins. At the Cuzco airport Efron was mobbed by screaming fans while donning the traditional Andean chullo hat.
The spotting comes days after several reports emerged alleging the actor completed two stints in rehab over a cocaine problem several months ago. Reports indicate that the actor also dabbled in Molly, a form of Ecstasy. Sources are quoted as saying he was a no-show on movie sets and responsible for destroying a hotel room.
TMZ noted that they found Efron’s choice of destination interesting since Peru is the cocaine capital of the world. However, for Latinos, Peru is the cradle of the Incan empire and home to many natural wonders and cultural treasures including Lake Titicaca and Ollantaytambo, site of massive Incan ruins.
