Brooke Mueller heads to rehab for Adderall problem
Brooke Mueller, Charlie Sheen’s third ex-wife and the mother of his twins, has returned to rehab for what’s reportedly the 19th time.
The Ministry admittedly hasn’t been keeping track, so that number comes courtesy of TMZ, which apparently has been. She checked in Monday night.
“Brooke was uncomfortable with the way Adderall was making her behave,” her attorney Yale Galanter told the website. Galanter told E! News that the stint would be for ongoing treatment of prolonged addiction issues. According to TMZ sources, Mueller has an Adderall prescription for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and told friends she recently took more than the prescribed amount while jamming to finish an order for her jewelry business.
Mueller was taken to the emergency room Friday morning after what was initially reported as an overdose. However, another Mueller attorney vigorously disputed that account, telling E! News on Friday that “there were no illegal drugs in Brooke’s system, and she is at home right now with her kids. Brooke did not overdose.”
Her spokesman told E! that Brooke was treated for exhaustion and dehydration.
Now that Mueller’s in rehab, incidentally, her kids are reportedly under the watchful eye of a somewhat unlikely caregiver: Denise Richards, Sheen’s second ex-wife.
