Charlie Sheen's ex-wife Brooke Mueller is at the UCLA Medical Center, but according to her rep, she's there for help with her ongoing substance abuse issues.
Brooke's publicist released the following statement:
- "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. Brooke misses her children, and wants to get healthy so she can resume her life and get back to being a mom."
While he didn't flat out deny that Mueller was taken in on a involuntary psychiatric hold, it sounds like everyone involved is giving her the care she needs to recuperate.
Sheen's other ex-wife Denise Richards was given temporary custody of Mueller and Sheen's 4-year-old twins Max and Bob, and the Anger Management star "supports the actions of the Department of Children and Family Services," and that he would "fully cooperate and fully participate" in any future proceedings, according to a source for Us Magazine. "He knows Max and Bob are safe in a stable, loving environment with Denise and the boys' sisters."
