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.
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.
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.
Brooke Mueller has been rushed to hospital after a suspected overdose.
The former wife of Charlie Sheen - who has twins Bob and Max, three, with the Anger Management star - was reportedly taken from her home in Tarzana, Los Angeles to a nearby hospital on Friday morning. According to gossip website TMZ, Brooke is now "conscious and responsive," but those around her are "deeply concerned" as they claim she has been taking drugs for the past few weeks.
In June, Charlie urged Brooke to check herself into rehab after he became concerned about her. Brooke - who has struggled with substance abuse issues in the past - reportedly appeared "out of it" when she paid a visit to her ex-husband.
A source close to Brooke said at the time, she "partied for four days straight ... and ultimately fell off the wagon." The insider added, "Brooke's family is hoping that she finally understands the consequences of her actions. That is, she risks losing all of her rights to the children if she doesn't get clean - once and for all."
Brooke Mueller has returned to rehab after relapsing.
The former wife of Charlie Sheen - who is currently on probation after being arrested for cocaine possession in December - checked herself into an undisclosed in-patient treatment facility a few weeks ago on the actor's advice, according to gossip website TMZ.
Brooke - who has struggled with substance abuse issues in the past - reportedly appeared "out of it" when she paid a recent visit to her ex-husband, with whom she has three-year-old twin sons Bob and Max so Charlie urged her to get help.
A source close to Brooke told Celebuzz she "partied for four days straight ... and ultimately fell off the wagon... Brooke's family is hoping that she finally understands the consequences of her actions. That is, she risks losing all of her rights to the children if she doesn't get clean - once and for all."
Brooke Mueller has pleaded guilty to cocaine possession.
The reality TV star appeared in a court room in Aspen, Colorado, today after being arrested last December for possession of a class-A drug as well as assault for allegedly hitting another woman in a nightclub.
Although the assault charges were dropped because there wasn't enough evidence, Brooke pleaded guilty to cocaine possession, according to RadarOnline.com. Under the terms of her plea deal, Brooke - who was recently released from rehab after completing 90 days treatment for drug addiction - must continue her outpatient drug treatment, and if she completes all terms of her probation, the possession charge will be dismissed in a year.
Brooke is determined to stay clean for the sake of her sons. "She's serious about staying clean, she's now living with a sober living companion, and going to Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings. She is hopeful that her recovery from drugs and alcohol will be sustained and lifelong. The only thing she is taking is vitamins. The main focus in Brooke's life right now is being the best mom possible to Bob and Max and staying sober," said a source.
Brooke Mueller's assault charge is "likely to be dismissed."
The 34-year-old star - who has two-year-old twin sons Bob and Max with ex-husband Charlie Sheen - was arrested in Aspen, Colorado, last December for the alleged assault of Llana Little and possession of cocaine.
However, while she will still face a judge in several weeks under the drugs charges, the battery case looks likely to be thrown out of court due to lack of evidence.
"The assault charge will likely be dismissed because the evidence just doesn't prove that Brooke touched Llana Little. The women exchanged heated words, but Brooke is absolutely adamant that she didn't lay a finger on Llana and the district attorney is inclined at this point to recommend the charge be dismissed. This doesn't mean that Brooke is totally off the hook though. She will plead no contest to a misdemeanor cocaine possession charge and she will likely be sentenced to community service and ordered to pay a fine. She won't do any jail time though because she is considered a first time offender and this is the sentence that anyone in a similar situation would face," a source told RadarOnline.com.
Brooke Mueller has checked herself into a "long-term, in-patient treatment center" to get sober.
The troubled beauty - the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen - has made the decision to get clean of drugs following her arrest for assault and cocaine possession in Aspen, Colorado, earlier this month.
"After further reflection and consideration, Brooke has decided to remove herself from the media spotlight and has entered a long-term in-patient treatment center where she can focus on her recovery without distraction," her representative Steve Honig said in a statement.
No further details about the rehab center will be released, according to Honig: "She has already arrived at the facility and, out of respect for her privacy, no further information will be released about her treatment. Brooke's goal is to maintain her sobriety and she believes this is the best option to reach that goal."
