GREECE, Classical — Plato did NOT go to rehab for alcohol abuse — it was far more serious, because multiple sources tell TMZ he had a serious Play-Doh addiction.
Plato completed his stint in rehab earlier this year. We’re told the problem spiraled out of control during the filming of Seth Rogen‘s film-adaptation of Plato’s “The Symposium“, which was shot during a narrow time frame beginning in April.
Sources tell us Plato — who also featured in the movie — was a no-show on a number of days. As one source connected with the film tells us, “It was common knowledge he was struggling with Play-Doh.”
Three other sources confirm … Plato’s problem was rooted in Play-Doh, but say he also dabbled in Molly — a pure form of Ecstasy, and a popular drug in clubs and raves.
We’re told … early this year, Plato and some friends (Socrates & Aristotle) went on a Play-Doh rager in a room at the SkyLofts at the MGM Grand in Vegas … and caused around $50k in damage. No word on who took care of the bill.
We contacted Plato’s rep … she said, “Don’t think we’ll be making a comment.”
