Brooke Mueller is in a new Malibu rehab, for her crack problem


I don’t even know where to begin with this one. TMZ and Radar are confirming that Charlie Sheen’s wife Brooke Mueller has gone into rehab again. Last we heard from Brooke, she was already in a rehab facility, this one masquerading as a “spa” in North Carolina. I really thought Brooke was still there, in North Carolina. Not so much, it turns out. Brooke apparently checked herself into The Canyon rehab facility in Malibu last Tuesday, a week ago. Now the question on everyone’s (my) mind is “But rehab for what?” Brooke has well-documented alcohol abuse problems, and there has been significant rumors of a crack addiction. Even though I thought the crack rumors were probably fueled by Charlie Sheen’s PR team, there was and is probably something there. Radar has two reports about Brooke’s boozing, and her crack pipe problem:

Brooke Mueller partied with Charlie Sheen just hours before going into rehab, has learned exclusively. Mueller and Sheen, back in Los Angeles after his Aspen court appearance, were together for a few hours and it was Mueller who was boozing heavily, a source close to the couple told

“It was just more of the same with Brooke,” the source said. “Her mother had been begging her to go into rehab.”

In fact, Brooke had been in rehab in North Carolina, although her lawyer denied it. She flew across the country after being hospitalized for pneumonia, a dangerous move, due to fluid in the lungs.

After leaving North Carolina she showed up for Sheen’s Aspen court date and then returned to Los Angeles and resumed her partying.

As was first to report, Mueller has previously been in rehab for crack addiction. And while she was recently hospitalized, friends tried to bring her drugs – in the hospital.

“It got to the point where even Charlie told her to go to rehab because of their kids,” the source close to both of them told “She had one final party, drinking pretty heavily, and Charlie was with her part of the time. But when he left it didn’t stop. The next day she was in bad, bad shape and that’s when she went into rehab.”

Sheen and Mueller both had alcohol in their bodies when police were called at 8:30 am Christmas. Sheen has been through rehab and has not said if he is seeking help again for his drinking.

A few hours later, Radar had a “confirmation” that Brooke went to The Canyon not specifically for her drinking, but for her crack addiction, with a source telling Radar: “Brooke has been in denial about her problem for a long time.” Apparently, when Brooke left the North Carolina rehab last week, she went to Charlie’s court appearance in Colorado, and then afterwards, she hit the bottle and the crack pipe pretty hard: “She went on an all-nighter. She was just out of control. She’s smoking crack and she’s drinking heavily. Everyone around her wanted her to get help.” Well… I hope she gets help, and I hope that this time it sticks.

    I know that this is going to sound horrible, but if you have money – why crack? Wouldn’t homegirl be better off with a good old fashioned coke habit?

  2. Constance says:

    @ Roma One would think. But then again maybe Charlie has all the sitcom funds tied up in Madames from here to Bangkok.

  3. Sarah says:

    Gosh, this is sooo sad for her and Charlie’s kids. Why, Gosh, why are these ppl getting children when they don’t intend to actually be good parents for them?? I honestly wish she is not in rehab for crack addiction and she is a good mom.

  4. GatsbyGal says:

    Wow, she really doesn’t look like a woman who “hits the crack pipe.” She hides it well.

    @Roma – I know, right? Or pain pills? All the rich ladies love the pain pills.

  5. mollyb says:

    I don’t get how you can be in denial about a crack problem. If you can affirmatively answer the question “Do you EVER do crack?”, then yes–you have a crack problem.

  6. bella says:

    I am just disgusted with both of them. Give those sweet baby boys to someone who cares enough to forego booze and drugs. There is nothing on God’s green that would cause me to divert my attention from my precious 8 month old baby boy, and I just can’t imagine choosing drugs or alcohol over him.

    To be very contradictory to what I just said, ditto on the crack comments: why not coke or pills or something higher end? Is a crack high that good?

  7. susanne says:

    Not speaking from experience, I think the high IS that powerful.

    Addiction is a horrible disease, and addicts actively using have lost a lot of power to make choices. It’s not a matter of loving your kids. From experience, I can say that I love my children more than life, yet I know I am capable of picking up a drink, even though it would mean losing them.

    I don’t know Brooke, and can’t say what kind of mother she is or whether she loves her kids, but I doubt she chose to be where she is now.

  8. sickofit says:

    na the pic on dlisted says it all. without makeup she looks horrible and has the skin of a diehard drug addict.
    their kids should be given to someone who cares, these two make me really sick…

  9. Cinderella says:

    Two addicts that had no business having children. Those kids are going to be passed around different caregivers like a hot potato.

  10. Jazz says:

    If I was married to Teflon Chuck, I’d be hittin’ the pipe too.

  11. ! says:

    You know, she might be smoking crack because 1. she can make it herself from good coke 2. smoking it doesn’t cause the nasal issues from long term use.

  12. lucy2 says:

    “Two addicts that had no business having children.”
    I agree. These are adults who, even if in denial of their own problems, have to be aware of each others problems, and they never should have had children until those problems were dealt with.
    I feel so bad for those babies, I hope someone good is taking care of them.

  13. bella says:


    You make a good point: Brooke had to have been aware of Charlie’s antics prior to getting involved with him (it’s not like his “indiscretions” are a well kept secret); Charlie was obviously aware of Brooke’s, since his people have been letting the press know about her prior arrests and addictions. How these two people ever thought having children together was a good idea is beyond me! I say again, file this couple under the “be careful what you wish for” category and pray for their children.

  14. oxa says:

    Children’s Services needs to step in and take the kids out of the madness.
    Take them and the nannies to Denise Richards, at least she is a decent mom, is always with her kids and Herb is great granpa.

  15. Chick says:

    @bella the crack high is THAT GOOD and it is an extremely addictive feeling. Much different then sniffing a line of cocaine. I feel bad for her and just hope that she can kick it. The high definitely is not good enough to ruin your life but it sure can steer you in the wrong direction if you let it take hold.

  16. boo says:

    I heard that they are going to lose the children. My guess is that the grandparents will do shared custody.

  17. GracieXDoes says:

    I have a friend that kicked the crack habit, but she told me it was the best thing in the world. She’s done coke, acid, weed, & crack (that she’s told me about anyway) and she’d do crack again in a heartbeat. Back when she told me about it she said that she thinks about it every day, it is that good. That’s been about 5 years. She doesn’t use, but I don’t know if she still thinks about it.

  18. Tru says:

    He is already bad enough by himself–WHERE did he meet this woman???

    He picked a drug abuser for his wife and mother of his children??

    she looks like she is low class and she looks like she ties one on HEAVY.

    I see Denise and her antics, were a lil too sane for him..he likes problem chicks..her face is bloated.

    wow, all of the gorgeous women in LA that are single..just wow

    poor babies, I know Denise does not let Brooke around her girls.

    drunkard and a crack head WOW!

  19. snapdragon says:

    these two should just get themselves sterilized.

  20. Going in for rehab should not be easy but however remains the best thing to do.

  21. Zelma Foutz says:

    Recovery embodies a difficult and challenging commitment.

  22. In order for rehab to be effective, you must first recognize that there is an addiction problem.
