Drew Sobs Over Ailing Dad

DREW BARRYMORE was so overcome with grief after visiting her dad in a California Alzheimer's centre, she was spotted sobbing in her car before driving away.

The CHARLIE'S ANGELS star arrived at the ALZHEIMER'S CARE CENTER in Santa Monica with boyfriend FABRIZIO MORETTI last week (ends11JUN04), and, after spending 45 minutes with her 75-year-old dad JOHN BARRYMORE, she left in tears.

Pictures of the painful visit have appeared in this week's (ends18JUN04) GLOBE tabloid in America.

An onlooker tells the weekly, "Poor Drew looked like the weight of the world was on her shoulders. She covered her face in her hands and just broke into tears."

The actress' half brother, also called JOHN, put his father in the facility, hoping that round-the-clock care could help ailing Barrymore combat his mental problems.

Drew allegedly pays $74,000 (GBP41,000)-per-year to help with her father's medical payments.
