Sex addiction and an obsessive need for intimacy are two of the topics television personality Andrew O’Keefe is currently grappling with in the psychiatric department of a Sydney hospital

The recently-deleted Seven Network star has been battling sex addiction for decades, a source told The Sunday Telegraph

“He has a number of underlying problems, but the root of it is a sex addiction that drives him dangerous and self-destructive ways,” the insider said, highlighting for the first time the mental problems that O’Keefe has repeatedly sought treatment for

A friend of Ax host The Chase earlier this month told The Sunday Telegraph O’Keefe and Dr Orly Lavee, the partner he allegedly met on Jan. January attacked her Randwick apartment because of “amazing chemistry and deep love for one another”

The young children of the mother-of-two were not in the home on the night of the alleged incident

Within months of separating from his wife Eleanor in 2017, O’Keefe was filmed kissing a brunette during an evening at The Den nightclub in Tasmania

A 21-year-old college student told Woman’s Day magazine that she was shocked when an “off his face” O’Keefe grabbed her and started kissing her

“I went over to say ‘hello’ to some of the friends he was with and put my arm around him to take a picture but I didn’t expect him to kiss me It was a bit of a shock” ”

He reportedly struggled again with an incident at a Seven Network Christmas party in December 2017

A year earlier, O’Keefe was hospitalized and treated for rib injuries, cuts and swelling on his face after being hit by a car while riding his bike home from a Christmas party for The Chase

In 2018, he was also photographed frolic with two young women in a Brisbane hotel elevator during a break in production of The Chase

The amorous encounter took place a decade after the appearance of a weather-beaten O’Keefe who collapsed in 2008 in the company of a blonde woman in a gutter outside the Revolver nightclub in Melbourne

In the same year, O’Keefe met Dr Lavee, the hematologist at St. Vincent’s Hospital, who was to become his partner The doctor invited him to share her Randwick apartment with her and played an important role in encouraging O’Keefe to seek treatment for problems that had plagued him for a decade

On Thursday, a court heard that O’Keefe remains an involuntary inpatient in the mental health department of Randwick’s Prince of Wales Hospital – literally just blocks from Lavee’s Randwick home, where the alleged attack took place

O’Keefe’s attorney moved to consider the 49-year-old for a Section 32 motion that gives the judge the power to dismiss the charge of bodily harm and convict O’Keefe for treatment outside the criminal justice system

If the provision is not granted, former domestic violence charity chair White Ribbon will plead guilty to the charges, his attorney told the court the matter was adjourned until April

Father of three, O’Keefe has sought treatment in and out of rehab for the past several years for the mental and emotional issues that plague him He is committed to rehabilitation

“There is another problem that I am not going to go into that was particularly poignant that came up after 40 years that I knew existed but that has never affected me the way it was,” he said
