Hopefully, 19th time’s the charm for Brooke Mueller, who is back in rehab – this time for Adderall addiction.
The 35-year-old is reportedly battling a substance abuse problem with the stimulant, which is commonly used to treat attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Mueller is the third ex-wife of Charlie Sheen and the mother of his three-year-old twins Bob and Max.
“Brooke was uncomfortable with the way Adderall was making her behave,” her attorney, Yale Galanter, told TMZ.
He added, “[She] continues her lifelong battle with drug addiction by taking these steps herself to prevent a further drug relapse.”
The news comes just days after Mueller was rushed to the hospital. While rumors swirled that it was because of a prescription pill overdose, her rep denied the claims.
“She was diagnosed with exhaustion and dehydration and is now fine and resting at home. That’s it,” he told Us Weekly.
So who is watching the kids while Mueller gets treatment? The answer may surprise you.
TMZ reports that she asked Denise Richards to care for Bob and Max!
According to the website:
“As for why Charlie isn’t caring for the 3-year-olds … we’re told he doesn’t have the time because he’s shooting Anger Management.”
The article continues, “Not only is Brooke confident the kids will be well cared for, but Charlie is also happy Denise is taking care of his entire brood.”
Do you know any exes who are on such good terms?
