According to Gallagher, Weiss turned to drugs after the loss of his parents left him depressed and heartbroken. Eventually, the actor started living at his friend's place and then the streets where he was beaten up and had his belongings stolen. 

FRIEND LIKE A BROTHER

The actor was held on $52,500 bail and a couple of months later, he was released. After that, he entered rehab and first went to an Orange Country hospital to start his treatment.

Weiss was once arrested in 2018 for public intoxication in Oroville, California. Although many gave up on him, Gallagher stuck by his friend's side and is still helping him in every way. 

Gallagher previously told "PEOPLE" that Weiss needs psychiatric attention because he is mentally ill. He described his friend as the sweetest and the nicest human being. 

The friends first met while working on a TV pilot nearly 4 years ago. Gallagher thinks of Weiss as a brother and says that he will not abandon him.
