Insiders told the paper that the other woman might have been a chief cause in O'Donnell booting Hoffman from the New York City home they'd lived in with their three kids, Cooper, 10, Tallulah, 7, and Willa, 5. (Hoffman's relapse into drug addiction has been cited as the main reason for the eviction, leading the Owning Mahowny star to acquire the Greenwich Village apartment he was found dead in.)
In his journal, the 46-year-old Boogie Nights star wrote he was “ashamed that he was going out and hanging out and drinking” after a 23-year run of sobriety, a habit that led to his overdose, a source told the paper.
One insider told NBC that “it seems Hoffman wrote at least part of it in rehab" last year.
"It definitely contained some soul-searching; but there is also a fair amount of rambling that doesn’t make sense.”
