Butler, 42, finished his rehab stint at the famed Betty Ford Center in February, but a source told RadarOnline.com exclusively that the Scottish born star seemed to be having a wild time over the weekend.
“Gerard partied like crazy at Coachella,” an eyewitness said. “He looked totally disheveled at one point. He was dancing like a crazy guy.”
Butler has spoken of his struggles with alcohol addiction in the past, admitting that at one point he didn’t care if he died.
“I had gone from a 16-year-old who couldn’t wait to grasp life to a 22-year-old who didn’t care if he died in his sleep,” he told The Red Bulletin.
“I used to drink until I couldn’t remember anything. I was just mad for it and on a death wish. It was madness.”
Another source who spotted Butler at Coachella tells RadarOnline.com that the actor stayed out all night long partying.
“It looked like he was having a whale of a time throughout the day Saturday, he attended the Lacoste party and then he was at the Neon Carnival until 5 a.m.!
“He looked pretty sloppy,” the source said.
Calls for comment to Butler’s rep were not returned at time of posting.
