Lindsay Lohan is avoiding Brooke Mueller in rehab.
While the 26-year-old actress and Charlie Sheen's former wife are both currently being treated at the Betty Ford Clinic, Lindsay is shunning Brooke, 35, because she thinks she is a "drug addict."
"It's creeping Lindsay out that Brooke seeks her out nightly at the meetings in an attempt to strike up a friendship. Brooke is extremely eager to become besties with Lindsay while in rehab, and has told Lindsay how much they have in common. Brooke's publicist was Lohan's one-time rep, Steve Honig and Brooke has even played the Charlie Sheen card, pointing out that Charlie helped Lindsay pay off debts to the IRS, so they both have a close relationship to him. But Lindsay has said that Brooke is a drug addict, and wants nothing to do with her. Lindsay has told her treatment team to keep Brooke out of her group sessions," a source said.
Denise Richards has retained custody of Charlie Sheen's sons.
Lawyers met in court yesterday after the actor's ex-wife Brooke Mueller - who is currently being treated for drug problems at the Betty Ford clinic - requested her four-year-old twins Bob and Max be placed in the care of her brother, but the judge "flatly denied" her request.
"The judge flatly denied Brooke's request to to have Denise stripped of temporary custody, and placed in the care of her brother in Orange County. There was absolutely no reason that could justify the move, which would only uproot the twins yet again," a source said.
Brooke - who would have retained the $55,000-a-month child support she receives from ex-husband Charlie if her brother was caring for the boys - had alleged Denise had only agreed to take on the children for her own financial benefit, but the actress insisted she isn't interested in money.
Lindsay Lohan will be jailed if she leaves the Betty Ford Center early.
The 26-year-old actress - who began 90 days of court-ordered treatment nine days ago after pleading "no contest" to lying to police about being behind the wheel during a car crash last June - is reportedly "freaking out" and threatening to quit the rehab facility in Rancho Mirage, California because doctors have cut off her supply of Adderall but has been warned she will be hauled before Judge James Dabney and sent to jail if she quits.
"The judge overseeing Lindsay's case has made it crystal clear that if she defies the agreement, it's jail time. Judge Dabney signed off on Betty Ford and he expects her to remain there for 90 days. If she does, that will be a violation of her probation and the judge will send her to jail," a source said.
Betty Ford's doctors rarely prescribe adults Adderall because they believe there are plenty of alternative treatments and also think that many people misuse the drug to control their weight.
It's been two years since Ashlee Simpson filed for divorce from Pete Wentz, and the Fall Out Boy bassist is finally talking to the public about the split and the toll it took on him.
The 33 year-old admitted recently to Rolling Stone that his addiction to prescription pills Xanax and Klonopin resumed and he experienced paranoia following the break-up:
"I was probably physically and mentally addicted. It started from insomnia and anxiety from flying, then it spiraled... I felt like a loser already. I'd basically gone from being the guy in Fall Out Boy to being the guy, who, like, hangs out all day. I didn't see how I'd ever come out on the other side... I was scared of everything. I thought there were always people listening to me. Like, I had my house searched for bugs. It was crazy."

Denise Richards' temporary custody of Brooke Mueller's four-year-old twins has been extended.
The Twisted actress, 42, has been granted permission to keep the 35-year-old socialite's sons, Bob and Max - who were removed from Brooke's home on Thursday by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services when she was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold in hospital - in her care for the moment, as Brooke undergoes treatment for "prescription drug abuse."
A source told gossip website TMZ.com that Denise and her ex-husband Charlie Sheen, who is the boys' father, put on a united front at an emergency court hearing on Tuesday morning where a judge poured over what sources say is a shocking report about the conditions in Brooke's home. The twins were also in court, along with Brooke's lawyers Lori Howe and Angela di Donato, and Charlie's lawyers Mark Gross and Elise Greenberg.
Charlie Sheen's ex-wife has been released from hospital.
Brooke Mueller - who was allegedly placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold at the UCLA Medical Centre on Wednesday because she was deemed to be a danger to herself and to others - checked out on Friday and refused to go to rehab for further treatment for her drug addiction.
"After Brooke sobered up on Friday, she was released from the involuntary psych hold because she was deemed to not be a danger to herself, or others, and her current whereabouts are unknown. Brooke was encouraged by doctors at UCLA to get treatment for her drug addiction, but she refused. Under the law, she couldn't be held any longer," a source said.
Her family and friends are reportedly very concerned as they have not been able to contact her. "[They] are sick with worry. Her cell phone is off, and Brooke hasn't spoken to her family in several days," an insider said.
Lindsay Lohan claims her latest trip to rehab is "pointless."
The 26-year-old actress - who began a 90-day court-ordered treatment program at the Betty Ford Center in California on Thursday to avoid jail after pleading ''no contest'' to charges for lying to police about driving during a car crash last June - claims she doesn't have a problem with alcohol or drugs.
"I've never been a huge drinker. I've never woken up in the morning and had a drink. I don't think I need to be on lockdown for three months. I don't think that's rehab. I've been court-ordered to do it six times. I could write the book on rehab. Constantly sending me to rehab is pointless. The first few times I was court-ordered to rehab it was like a joke, like killing time."
The actress - who also claims she has only done cocaine "four or five times" in her life but admits to preferring ecstasy and pot - hopes that her stint in rehab will help her to change people's opinion of her.
Denise Richards has been awarded temporary custody of Charlie Sheen's sons. The Wild Things actress - who has daughters Sam, nine, and Lola, seven, with the actor, as well as adopted Eloise, two - is to take on the care of twins Bob and Max, four, after social workers Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services removed them from the home of their mother Brooke Mueller because of allegations her drug use is jeopardizing their safety.
"Brooke was given many opportunities by social workers to clean up her act. Social workers felt that Bob and Max weren't safe in Brooke's care. The decision was made late on Thursday afternoon, and the boys are no longer in Brooke's care. It's expected at some point the boys will be taken care of by Charlie Sheen's ex-wife, Denise Richards, who has cared for them in the past when Brooke went to rehab. Denise loves the boys and their safety and well being mean everything to her. Bob and Max are safe and that is all the matters. Denise is simply complying with the court order," a source said.
Lindsay Lohan will not be allowed Adderall during her time in rehab.
The 26-year-old actress has reportedly said she will only enter a court ordered treatment facility if she is allowed to have the prescription drug - used to treat Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder - but a source at Seafield Center in Westhampton Beach, New York, where she has chosen to check in to, insists they don't allow it.
"We are suspicious of Adderall because of its many abuses - lots of people say they take it for ADHD, when they're really using it for weight loss and getting high," an insider said.
While the facility tries to get patients off Adderall and uses other drugs to treat ADHD instead, Lindsay has told friends she has tried other medications but none have worked.
Rihanna's tour buses were allegedly stopped and searched for drugs.
The "Stay" singer - who recently kicked off her Diamonds world tour - was not on any of the buses when they were reportedly stopped at the border between Michigan and Canada but a "small amount" of marijuana was discovered on an unidentified passenger.
A law enforcement source told gossip website TMZ.com that a total number of ten buses were stopped at the Ambassador Bridge, which separates Windsor, Canada and Detroit, and inspectors initiated a secondary bus-to-bus search after an officer smelt the drug on one of the buses. A sniffer dog was brought on board and detected drugs on one passenger, who was then searched and a small amount of marijuana was discovered. He was reportedly cited with a civil penalty.
The 24-year-old star resumed her tour last Thursday after being forced to cancel two shows in Boston and Baltimore after falling ill with laryngitis immediately after the first show of the tour in New York state and tweeted she was "embarrassed" about it.
