Paramedics rushed to Moore's L.A. home around 10:45 p.m. Monday and transported her to a nearby hospital.

A publicist told TMZ, "Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health. She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends."

Moore split with Kutcher, who stars on CBS' "Two and a Half Men," in the wake of allegations that he had been cheating on her.
