TMZ reports that Glee‘s Mark Salling attempted suicide a month and a half before striking a plea deal in his child porn case.
We’re told the “Glee” star was in the bedroom of his L.A. area home on August 22 when he cut both of his wrists. We’re told Mark “freaked out” and screamed for his roommate, who discovered him bleeding and called 911.
Paramedics rushed to the home where they treated Mark, put him in an ambulance and took him to the hospital.
We’re told Mark was taken for psychiatric evaluation, and days later, was taken to a rehab facility for psychological issues.
Mark’s arms are scarred, which is apparently why he’s been wearing long sleeves in the Los Angeles heat.
You’ll recall cops found more than 50,000 images of child porn on Salling’s personal computer, with many images of children under the age of 5. The prosecution recommended 4 to 7 years in prison under the plea deal, though the judge has yet to impose a sentence.
