Farrell Fights Off Overdose Reports

LATEST: As Irish actor COLIN FARRELL recovers from exhaustion, he's fighting off a fresh set of reports suggesting he was hospitalised after taking an overdose.

The ALEXANDER star's publicist announced yesterday (13DEC05) he had entered a treatment centre suffering from exhaustion and dependency on prescription medication, which was prescribed to him after he sustained a back injury.

But as Farrell takes time out, he's now been hit with reports that he was rushed to an emergency room in Uruguay on Friday (09DEC05) after suffering an overdose.

A radio station in the South American country reports that traces of marijuana, cocaine and an unidentified substance were found in his blood when he was treated.

Farrell's publicist vehemently denies the reports.
