Brooke Mueller in hospital over prescription drug abuse

After plenty of speculation, the whereabouts and health of Brooke Mueller has been confirmed. At present, the socialite is at the UCLA medical centre, where she has been admitted since May 3, 2013.


The news about the actress was revealed by her representative. On May 3, 2013 reports had surfaced that Mueller’s 4-year-old sons Bob and Max, whom she had with her former husband Charlie Sheen, have been removed by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services. The Department had deemed the residence an unsafe environment for the children.

Rumours circulated that the actress had struggled with substance abuse and was admitted to the psychiatric facility. A representative of the socialite confirmed, “Brooke will be [at UCLA Medical Center] for several more days, and will likely transition directly into a residential treatment facility to get help for prescription drug abuse.” At present, Bob and Max are staying with their father’s second ex-wife Denise Richards.

The representative continued to say that Brooke misses her children and wants to get healthy so that she can resume her life and get back to being a mom. Muellers most recent stay in rehab was her 19th and was back in the month of December 2012.
