LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- According to Star Magazine, Malibu’s Promises Treatment Center footed the bill for Tara Reid’s visit to get help for an undisclosed reason, however, the center told Access that the claims are completely false.
The mag claim that the center is struggling with the economy and was using Tara to help them drum up publicity – was also denied.
In a statement issued by Promises to Access Hollywood, the rehab facility denied claims made by mag.
“Any suggestion that Promises is in any financial trouble whatsoever is patently untrue,” the statment said. “The suggestion that Promises would search Hollywood for a celebrity who needs rehab in an effort to garner publicity is libelous, offensive and without any basis in reality.”
The treatment center has demanded a retraction of Star’s article, and stated that they were “extremely disappointed that the editors at Star did not attempt to contact Promises either for comment or to fact check their story.”
