More details about his final months...
The New York Post reports that Philip Seymour Hoffman was allegedly in a love triangle before he died. He was "caught in between" a relationship with his girlfriend Mimi O'Donnell and a woman he recently hooked up with. The discovery was made by police who were looking through his journals.
Hoffman said in the journals that the new woman in his life may have been the reason that O'Donnell, who is also the mother of his three children, kicked him out of their home three months ago on Jane Street. She also didn't want Hoffman living with the family while he was still using drugs, and hoped kicking him out would get him to clean up his life.
Hoffman died of what appears to be a heroin overdose on February 2. He was found dead in his West Village apartment with a needle in his arm. His home was filled with empty heroine bags and syringes. There were also over 40 full bags. Police found the two diaries while searching. One is 6 x 8 inches and the other was 7 x 9 inches.
He also wrote about his addiction that he thought would eventually kill him. He said he was "ashamed that he was going out and hanging out and drinking" after he was sober for so long. He went through rehab after college and was clean for 23 years before his relapse. He wrote that he was haunted by "demons" and was trying to help himself by going to Narcotics Anonymous meetings.
He also wrote about how he got his drugs, with some of the entries in the journal being written in rehab. Sources claim the journals are hard to read, as some start clear but then become really hard to read, as if Hoffman wrote them while intoxicated.
A source said: "It's stream of consciousness and difficult to follow. In one line, he refers to ‘Frank who always owes money,' and on the same page, he writes about a 15-year-old girl from Texas."
Another source added: "It seems he did at least part of it in rehab. It definitely contained some soul-searching. But there is also a fair amount of rambling that doesn't make sense."
