Rumor has it, the 'Machine Gun Preacher' star exchanged heated text messages, emails and phone calls with the woman for several months, but hasn't been in touch with her since entering rehab.
Gerard Butler has been accused of being a home wrecker. Radar Online recently brought up the story that before he checked himself into rehab, the Milo Boyd of "The Bounty Hunter" had a steamy affair with an aspiring actress/model for several months. Words are, the woman is currently going through divorce from her husband.
"It was a very intense relationship," a source close to the situation spilled. "She had very strong feelings for Gerard, despite the fact that she was a newlywed at the time. They would exchange heated text messages, emails and phone calls. She would drop anything to be with Gerard. The two would hook-up at his hotel when he was in Los Angeles."
When her husband eventually found out about the affair, the model "told her husband she would end things with Gerard and he agreed to give her another chance." Despite the promise she made, she continued her affair with the "Of Men and Mavericks" star, before deciding to file for divorce from her husband.
"She thought Gerard wanted to be in a relationship with her but then she found out he was involved with other girls, and hadn't been exactly honest with her about what was going on in his life," the insider explained. When she "began calling Gerard incessantly", the 42-year-old hunk "changed his cell phone number."
It was further noted that the woman "hasn't been in touch with [Gerard] since he decided to go to rehab." The insider went on to point out, "Gerard has obviously moved on, but she is now going through a divorce and trying to support her son (from a previous relationship)."
Words broke out that Gerard sought help for his substance abuse issues at the Betty Ford Center in California in late February. TMZ reported he decided to enter rehab after realizing he was becoming reliant on prescription drugs. His representative has since stated that the actor "has completed a successful course of treatment and has returned home in good health."
