Charlie Sheen’s Ex Brooke Mueller Checks Into Rehab
Brooke Mueller has checked back into rehab, multiple reports confirm.
Charlie Sheen‘s ex, who has struggled with substance abuse for many years , is set to participate in a treatment program for six months, and has already spent a month and a half at a facility, sources confirm.
The revelations of her rehab care come just two months after ex-husband Charlie — with whom she shares six-year-old twins Bob and Max — admitted to being HIV positive .
“Brooke has been inundated with calls from friends and family,” Mueller’s rep, Steve Honig, told Us Weekly in a statement. “To put their minds at ease, Brooke can confirm that she and the boys are not HIV-positive.”
The former couple has a very complicated past. In 2010, Sheen expertly avoided jail time , attending a Malibu rehab facility after allegedly holding a knife to then-wife Mueller’s neck on Christmas vacation in Aspen, Colo.
Meanwhile, Mueller has had a number of rehab visits herself, including 90 days in 2012 after an arrest for drug and assault charges, and once before that, in 2010.
In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com , Sheen claimed that Mueller has been supportive of his HIV diagnosis, saying, “She was sad for me but then realized that I’m a pretty tough customer and she knew I would handle it and do whatever I had to.”
Mueller’s rep declined to comment on her most recent rehab treatment.
