Frantic pals are worried that once-hunky “Gladiator” star Russell Crowe’s partying is spiraling out of control — and are urging him to seek help!
“Friends are very concerned,” a source told The National ENQUIRER.
“Some have been urging him to go into rehab before things get too crazy.”
Insiders whisper that his unhappiness over estranged wife Danielle Spencer’s new romance is at the root of his wild behavior.
Danielle — who is mom to Russell’s two sons, Charles and Tennyson — split from the volatile actor in 2012.
She recently went public with her new boyfriend, Australian writer Adam Long, at a red-carpet event in Sydney.
Russell, a spy tattled to The ENQUIRER, is drowning his jealousy and anger in booze, and his friends are begging him to dry out!
“Russell’s been reluctant to do so,” the snitch said.
“He says he’s got everything under control, and there’s no need to worry.
“But there have been warning signs — and friends are worried that if he doesn’t get help soon, he’ll go over the edge!”
