Lauren Conrad’s ex-boyfriend, Jason Wahler, just can’t seem to get his act together. The former Laguna Beach star was fired from the film he was set to star in due to “personal problems” a source told exclusively.

“Jason was let go from the project because of his behavior,” a well placed source close to the film said.

The troubled actor, 22, was in pre-production for Five Good Years, to be shot in Detroit. The insider told that Wahler wowed executives at FourTwoFive Films and they hired him without even auditioning. However that all changed within a few days.

In an exclusive statement from the project's director, Bruce Reisman, he tells us "FourTwoFive Films did not proceed in formalizing our “offer” with his management as a result of any drug or alcohol problem."

"I did not, ever, witness his being inebriated or on-drugs, either in a social or professional environment."

Reisman does admit, however, that he and staff  "experienced first-hand behavior form Jason that was not conducive with FourTwoFive Films' expectations."

Lauren Conrad

Wahler’s battle with drugs and alcohol is no secret. His addictions became public following a brief stint on MTV’s The Hills, in which he co-starred alongside then girlfriend Lauren Conrad. Following his departure from the show, Wahler was arrested twice for various charges including underage drinking and assault. He spent time in jail and eventually went to rehab.

“He’d say, ‘I’ll meet you at this place at this time,’ and then he wouldn’t show up,” our source said. “He’d say, ‘Oh I was in Arizona’, when in reality he was in LA all along.”

“Jason was given a very good opportunity to change his image,” the source added. “He has tremendous potential to be a major star."

Wahler’s manager was not immediately available for comment.
