He went on to seemingly justify his past misdemeanours, saying, "Anyone who's big in Hollywood, who's underage, gets in [to clubs]." Wahler brandished a fake ID when rarely asked for proof, and seemed to turn from a light social drinker to someone who partied too much and too often upon his arrival in LA in 2006. He apparently considered this 'normal'. That might have something to do with his nasty breakup with fellow Laguna Beach alum Lauren Conrad, then. Jason explains that he continued this party lifestyle "until [he] started becoming someone [he was] truly not", and explains it was a factor in the couple's bitter split. "I did try drugs, but it was never my thing. It was alcohol, for sure. It would take me about 10 drinks before that other side came out."
On April 12th, Wahler submitted himself to Chapman House, an inpatient facility near to his home in Orange County, CA. He told People that ex-girlfriend Lauren Conrad has been to visit. He is now dating tennis player Katja Decker-Sadowski (pictured right with Wahler) who studies at USC.
