Amid rumors that Zac Efron has suffered a grievous injury, his rep confirms that Zac did actually break his jaw. Apparently, Zac ‘slipped’ in a ‘puddle of water’ outside of his Los Angeles home, and that somehow led to him breaking his jaw. Uh-huh.
Is it just me, or is the explanation super sketchy? I’ve slipped in puddles of water many times, and even ice, and never managed to break my jaw. Of course, it could be an unfortunate turn of events and Zac might have actually somehow landed on his jaw. While that sounds highly implausible, the more likely explanation is that Zac was drugged up on cocaine and goodness knows what else, and he ended up breaking his jaw in a drug-fueled accident. People who are on cocaine often think they’re invincible, especially with several bouts of excessive energy, and that could have easily led to Zac accidentally injuring himself and breaking his jaw.
According to Zac’s rep, he has his jaw wired shut to allow it to recover and he also received stitches for a cut. Zac’s promotional duties for That Awkward Moment, his next film with Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan, have been postponed until Zac makes a solid recovery.
I’m sensing a conspiracy theory here, even if I’m completely off-base. Zac needed a good cover story if he did actually relapse, and what better story than to say that he got injured while he’s actually at home, recuperating from a drug binge? I might be completely wrong, but that story definitely sounds more realistic than Zac slipping in a puddle of water and breaking his jaw.
