Charlie Sheen’s ex wife Brooke Mueller has been placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold at the UCLA Medical center for drug abuse, and she has lost custody of her twins.
The 35-year old socialite had been battling addiction to meth, and had refused to go to rehab as advised by concerned friends. So on Wednesday, she was 5150’d under the Californian Welfare Institutions Code, the same code Britney Spears was subjected to in 2008. The code allows a qualified medical or peace official to involuntarily confine someone because it’s deemed they have a mental disorder that makes them a danger to themselves and/or others.
Then on Thursday, Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services took away her 4-year old twins Bob and Max and placed them on the care of Denise Richards, Charlie Sheen’s other ex-wife.
A source close to the family told RadarOnline:
‘Brooke was taken to the medical center on Wednesday night, after she was deemed to be a threat to herself and to others.
‘She had been using drugs for days and was not in her right mind. It was a very sad, sad situation.
‘Once Brooke was admitted, her doctors notified the Department of Children and Family Services and action was taken by the agency immediately to get her children legally out of her care.’
Charlie Sheen, on his own part, says he supports the move to take away the twins from Brooke. ‘Charlie supports the actions of the Department of Children and Family Services,’ his publicist Larry Solters said in a statement. ‘He knows Max and Bob are safe and in a stable, loving environment with Denise and the boys’s sisters. Charlie will fully cooperate and fully participate in all proceedings.’
Brooke is still being held at the hospital.
According to an insider, ‘Brooke is completely in denial about how bad her addiction is to crystal meth. Even after losing Bob and Max, she is still refusing to go back to rehab. The only chance Brooke has of even having visitation with the boys is if she is in a treatment program.
‘The longer Brooke goes without getting treatment, the more it hurts her chances of getting the boys back.’
Another source added that Brooke is in ‘a very, very bad place right now. She is absolutely despondent that she lost the boys. Maybe this will finally make her realize that she needs to get help.’
Brooke Mueller has been battling drug addiction for years. Last year, she entered rehab treatment for the 19th time for addiction to Adderall.
Pray for her y’all.
