Mini Me Verne Troyer Threatened Suicide Before Death

The ‘Austin Powers’ star was treated at a hospital in Los Angeles for alcohol poisoning earlier this month after police were told he was suicidal, MailOnline reports.

At the time, a report surfaced online claiming the 49-year-old actor had been admitted to hospital for almost two weeks for alcoholism, but he later took to his social networking sites to play down his health woes and said he was checking into rehab.

Verne – who has been in rehab at least twice in the past and reportedly almost died from alcohol poisoning in 2002 – said: “I’ve been hearing from some concerned fans, so I’d like to address a personal situation.

“As you know, I’ve battled alcohol addiction in the past and while it’s not always been an easy fight, I’m willing to continue my fight day by day.

“I’ve been receiving treatment for the last week and I am voluntarily checking into a treatment center later this week to continue to get the help that I need.

“I want to thank everyone that’s reached out with their messages of support, it truly means the world to me. With your support, I got this.”

Verne’s tragic passing was announced on his Facebook account last night (21.04.18) and, although his cause of death wasn’t confirmed, the statement suggested that he had been struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts in recent months.
