The Wedding Crashers star allegedly slashed his wrists and was found distressed at his Santa Monica, California, home by his brother Andrew on Aug. 26. He was taken to a nearby hospital emergency room and then spent a week under supervision at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
The unnamed source tells the publication, "A good portion of his (Wilson's) life has been dedicated to fighting depression and addiction... This is the third time he's tried killing himself."
And the source insists Wilson's break-up with girlfriend Kate Hudson wasn't to blame for the suicide attempt, as has been suggested--he was actually distraught after failing to come up with material for a friend's film project.
The insider adds, "Owen felt demoralized after letting down his pal."
