Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead from an apparent drug overdose in his Manhattan apartment at the age of 46.
Tortured actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was trapped in a love triangle before he died, according to his private diaries.
The Oscar winner was “caught in between” his relationship with longtime girlfriend Mimi O’Donnell and a woman with whom he he’d recently hooked up, according to his journals, law-enforcement sources told The Post on Tuesday.
Hoffman implied that his new gal pal was one reason O’Donnell — the mother of his three young children — might have bounced him from their Jane Street pad about three months ago, sources said.
O’Donnell also didn’t want the drug-addled Hoffman living with her and their kids while he was still using, sources have said. She hoped the tough love would make him get clean faster.
The 46-year-old “Capote’’ star — who died of an apparent heroin overdose Feb. 2 — also painfully wrote about the addiction that would eventually kill him, the sources said.
He felt “ashamed that he was going out and hanging out and drinking” after having been sober for so long, sources said.
