The ex-wife of “Anger Management” star Charlie Sheen has been hospitalized, according to media reports. USA Today reports that Brooke Mueller was in UCLA Medical Center being treated for prescription drug abuse.
TMZ reported that Mueller’s 4-year-old twins with Sheen were taken from her home last week because of what was described as suspected drug use, the report notes. The twins were reportedly staying with Sheen’s other ex-wife, Denise Richards.
USA Today quotes Steve Honig, a rep for Mueller, issuing a statement to clarify the situation. Says Honig: "Despite reports to the contrary, Brooke is currently at UCLA Medical Center where she has been since being admitted May 3. Brooke will be there for several more days, and will likely transition directly into a residential treatment facility to get help for prescription drug abuse."
The report adds that Honig “confirms that Bob and Max are with Richards, adding, ‘Brooke misses her children, and wants to get healthy so she can resume her life and get back to being a mom.’"
Mueller was reportedly in rehab most recently in December, being treated for addiction to Adderall.
