Brooke Mueller Rehab, Back in for Drug Abuse; Rep Confirms after Custody of Kids Given to Denise Richards

Brooke Mueller entered rehab on May 3 following the decision to remove her children with Charlie Sheen from her custody.

A rep for Mueller confirmed that the 35-year-old is seeking treatment, after a headline-filled few days. Her twins, Bob and Max, were taken from her home on May 2 after the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family services deemed the residence an "unsafe environment" for them. The children were placed in the temporary custody of Denise Richards, Sheen's second ex-wife.

"Despite reports to the contrary, Brooke is currently at UCLA Medical Center where she has been since being admitted May 3," Steve Honig said. "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."

Honig also said Bob and Max were still Mueller's priority: "Brooke misses her children, and wants to get healthy so she can resume her life and get back to being a mom." 

Sheen's rep said on May 3 that the actor feels like his two young sons are now in capable hands. He supported the decision for Richards to assume the parental responsibilities at the time being.

"He knows Max and Bob are safe in a stable, loving environment with Denise and the boys' sisters," a statement from his rep read.

A source told Radar Online that Richards caring for the twins would give Mueller the time she needs to pull herself together. It was even alleged that Mueller was placed on "involuntary psychiatric hold" at the UCLA Medical Center on May 3 because she had spiraled out of control.

"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," a source said.

Mueller is expected to stay in treatment until she stabilized. The insider said Mueller made the decision "that it's in her best interests" to seek treatment for her drug addiction.
