    Hoffman, $10,000 a Month Heroin Habit

    PHILIP Seymour Hoffman's long-time partner had recently kicked him out of their New York apartment because of his struggles with heroin addiction.

    Friends said the Oscar-winning star's estranged girlfriend Mimi O'Donnell was showing "tough love" by ordering Hoffman out of the $4.4 million home they owned together so he could get himself off the drug.
    “It was known that he was struggling to stay sober, and [O’Donnell] had given him some tough love and told him he needed some time away from the kids and to get straight again,” a source told the New York Post.




    As tributes for the Oscar-winner continued to flow, a teary Cate Blanchett paid a visit to the apartment where Hoffman once lived with costume designer O'Donnell and children Cooper, 10, Tallulah, 7, and Willa, 5.

    The Aussie star, a great friend of Hoffman since they appeared together in the 1999 movie “The Talented Mr. Ripley”, was photographed carrying toys and gifts for Hoffman's kids as she entered the West Village apartment block.
    Dressed in black, Blanchett made no comment but has clearly been hit hard by the tragic passing of a fellow actor and good mate.

    She and her husband Andrew Upton invited Hoffman to Sydney in 2010 to direct the Sam Shepard play True West for the Sydney Theatre Company. Upton yesterday described Hoffman as "an incredible man. A generous and true spirit. The loss is extraordinary".
    Hoffman began renting a US$10,000-a-month apartment in nearby Greenwich Village - around three blocks away from costume designer O'Donnell and his three young children - about three months ago.
    It was here the 46-year-old Oscar winner was found dead, lying in his underwear on the bathroom floor. A needle was still stuck in his left arm. A charred spoon was reportedly in the kitchen sink.

    It has since emerged that he was reportedly spending $US10,000 a month on heroin as well as using prescription drugs when he died.
    The Capote actor not only had a massively expensive heroin habit but was also said to be using the pain-relieving drug, Oxycontin.

    Several prescription drugs - including one that helps heroin addicts kick the habit - were also reportedly found in his Manhattan apartment.
    Authorities are expected to undertake an autopsy on the body of Oscar-winning star later today but a law enforcement official has already told AFP that early tests indicate drugs found in the apartment were heroin.
    As the extent of Hoffman's drug taking became clearer, multiple sources said that between 40 and 50 envelopes of a drug believed to be heroin were found in the apartment where he died.
    "He was what we call a heavy 'red liner,'" a source told RadarOnline. "That means he liked to shoot [heroin] with a needle, but he also sniffed it daily. And he was majorly hooked on Oxy, too."
    The NYPD has launched an intensive citywide search to identify the drug dealer who sold heroin to Hoffman, the New York Post reported.

    "An internal email went out to all supervisors asking if anyone has had any experience with those brand names of drugs,” a law enforcement source said. "They’re going to try to find the source."
    There have been reports of a possible link between a batch of heroin laced with fentanyl - a potent painkiller - and Hoffman's death.
    The fentanyl-laced heroin has already been linked to a number of deaths across America's East Coast, according to The Times.
    Some of the drug envelopes found in Hoffman's apartment had the brand "Ace of Spades" stamped in purple, a possible pointer to the deadly batch.

    What's with the American habit of giving their kids a surname for their first name?
    Hacks me off because it's so silly.

    Not as silly as putting numbers after the surname, the golfer Davis Love 3 being an example.

    he was reportedly spending $US10,000 a month on heroin
    What was he doing , spilling it ? thought addicts were skinny and emancipated?

    What a giant tub of useless lard.

    Hoffman got smited and wiped by god / nature / natural selection- take your pick-

    Just like Heath Ledger , he played a homosexual and ended up having to take ever increasing quantities of drugs to try and blot out the sick memory and stop the gay disease /demon attacking him .

    No great loss in either case ,and a warning to aspiring young actors to steer clear of homosexuality -don't act gay or you might end up being attacked by gayness.

    There are plenty of homo actors to play the gay roles , let them do it , and save yourself years of misery and possible suicide .

    Never heard of this guy before now.
    Addiction for many is the curse of our generation.
    Heroin, Cocaine,Meth,Alcohol and nicotine are the worst candidates.
    Even the 'harmless' weeeed is difficult for many when supplies are easy to come by.
    It's ones thought that makes the decision.
    To do or not to do.
    More people have tried Heroin but decide not to continue with it.
    A minority just cannot leave it alone.
    Chances are he used the same amount as he had done 20 years ago but the
    tolerance level wasn't there.
    Still a happy ending for him.

    Emancipated = an emaciated nancy boy?

    I am watching Capote tonight - having pirated several of Hoffman's movies as a tribute to him. I suspect Truman Capote was one of 'them' (makes flapping nancy boy, i'm-a-teapot, hand gesture)

    Serves Hoffman right and happily one less fag enabler to pollute the world
    .
    If a zebra minces about pretending it has a broken leg it can expect to be targeted by the lions ..
    A man walking about in the snow with no coat on will be targeted by the flu virus.
    Similarly
    a normal man acting like he is a raving poofter with be attacked by gayness.

    don't ask me how ? and scientists don't know either as they are not bothering to research the disease.
    But Hoffman and heath Ledger both suffering the same fate- depression -drug abuse- wife leaving them - then overdose/ suicide is too much of a coincidence ,

    Hoffman a great actor ?
    really , I've only seen him in the Great Lebowski
    he played a butler - big deal -
    Terry Thomas played the role better in How to Murder Your Wife , as did that actor in the 1960's batman tv series.
