Brooke Mueller, the ex-wife of actor Charlie Sheen, has entered rehab after footage surfaced showing her about to smoke crystal meth in a trash-filled van in Washington, according to reports.
The New York Post’s Page Six acquired a video from June 2018 which apparently shows Mueller, 41, rolling drug paraphernalia between her fingers and holding a lighter. A source told the tabloid that minutes earlier, an acquaintance checked Mueller and Sheen’s 9-year-old son, Bobby, into a hotel in Spokane. Bobby’s twin brother, Max, was reportedly at camp at the time.
PageSix reported that Mueller was filmed asking to go somewhere to get more drugs as she suffered from withdrawal.
“Just how am I gonna wake up tomorrow, and who is going to drive me?…I am not gonna to be able to wake up with… This is what you don’t get. I am not gonna be able to get on the plane,” she’s reportedly heard saying.
Earlier that day, Mueller allegedly left her son alone with two men at a restaurant in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, so she could get drugs. Page Six reported that she took her son to her boyfriend’s summer home, but he kicked the pair out, leading them to the hotel located near Spokane International Airport.
Mueller reportedly told a hotel employee to drive her to a local casino but another car ultimately arrived to pick her up. Employees eventually realized Mueller’s son was alone in the hotel room and called the police, according to the tabloid.
Mueller has allegedly been to rehab at least 20 times for substance abuse issues which have landed her in the news as recently as last month.
However, Mueller’s spokesperson recently confirmed to Page Six that the actress has entered a rehabilitation center which also treats emotional trauma that’s linked to addiction.
“Brooke has voluntarily checked herself into a trauma center on the East Coast and is under the supervision of a team of professionals,” the rep. said.
“Like millions of other people, staying sober is a daily challenge and she is working hard to overcome her disease.”
