Burt Reynold’s Hooked Again!

Dying Burt Reynolds suffered a shocking meltdown on a TV show, and worried pals fear the “Smokey and the Bandit” legend is back popping prescription painkillers. 

A source close to the fast-fading actor — who turns 80 on Feb. 11 —  fears: “Burt is back on pain pills again!

“He spends most of his days in bed in his darkened bedroom and seldom leaves his Florida home.

“Most of the time, Burt’s groggy and out of it.”

On top of that, the old timer’s girlfriend is angry with him. Find out why only in this week’s issue of GLOBE.
