Demi 'smoked something' before hospital dash

A caller on an emergency recording released by Los Angeles fire officials claimed Demi Moore "smoked something" before she was rushed to hospital on Monday night.

The woman on the call released yesterday said the actress was convulsing, shaking and "burning up".

She told emergency operators that Moore had been "having issues lately."

"Is she breathing normal?" the operator asked.

"No, not so normal. More kind of shaking, convulsing, burning up," the friend said.

When the operator asked what Moore ingested or smoked, the caller replied, but the answer was redacted.

"Some form of ... and then she smoked something. I didn't really see. She's been having some issues lately with some other stuff. So I don't know what she's been taking or not."

When the operator asked the friend if this has happened before, she said, "I don't know. There's been some stuff recently that we're all just finding out."

By the end of the call, actress Moore, best known for weepy movie Ghost, seemed to have improved.

"She seems to have calmed down now. She's speaking," a male caller told the operator.

Moore announced in November she had decided to end her marriage to Ashton Kutcher following news of alleged infidelity.

Moore (49) and Kutcher (33) were married in September 2005.

Kutcher became a stepfather to Moore's three daughters -- Rumer, Scout and Tallulah Belle -- from her 13-year marriage to actor Bruce Willis. Moore and Willis divorced in 2000 but remained friendly.
