Just a day after her 4-year-old twin boys were removed from her care by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, Charlie Sheen's ex-wife Brooke Mueller checked into a rehab facility.
"Despite reports to the contrary, Brooke is currently at UCLA Medical Center where she has been since being admitted May 3," Mueller’s publicist, Steve Honig, told omg! in a statement. "Brooke will be there for several more days, and will likely transition directly into a residential treatment facility to get help for prescription drug abuse. Brooke misses her children, and wants to get healthy so she can resume her life and get back to being a mom."
After Bob and Max, her sons with Sheen, were removed from her home last week, they were temporarily placed with the woman Sheen was married to prior to Mueller, 42-year-old actress Denise Richards.
According to E! News, social workers had been investigating the situation for over a year, often observing Mueller disappearing for long periods of time. "She hasn't lived in her house for a few weeks," an insider said. "They don't know where she's at. It's been so bad."
Richards has two daughters with Sheen, Sam, 9, and Lola, 7, as well as a third daughter she adopted on her own in 2011, Eloise, almost 2.
Sheen released a statement to omg! over the weekend stating that he "supports the actions of the Department of Children and Family Services. He knows Max and Bob are safe and in a stable, loving environment with Denise and the boys' sisters. Charlie will fully cooperate and fully participate in all proceedings."
Mueller has had multiple stints in rehab in the past and this is reportedly the second time Richards has cared for Bob and Max.
