LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Despite initially revealing she was seeking out a “different approach to deal with her addiction,” a rep for Brooke Mueller said on Tuesday she’s now getting help for her addiction battles at an in-patient treatment center.
“After further reflection and consideration, Brooke has decided to remove herself from the media spotlight and has entered a long-term in-patient treatment center where she can focus on her recovery without distraction,” Mueller’s spokesperson, Steve Honig, said in a statement to Access Hollywood on Tuesday.
According to her rep, Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife is already at the undisclosed center.
“She has already arrived at the facility and, out of respect for her privacy, no further information will be released about her treatment. Brooke’s goal is to maintain her sobriety and she believes this is the best option to reach that goal,” the statement continued.
Honig reiterated that no changes will be made related to Mueller’s custody of 2-year old twins Bob and Max, with ex-husband Sheen.
“Brooke will retain custody of the children, who will remain in their home and familiar surroundings and be under the care of their longtime nanny. Charlie and Brooke’s parents fully support her decision and everyone recognizes the importance of maintaining the children’s normal routine,” Honig said in a statement.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Mueller was arrested on December 2, after a woman claimed she was assaulted by the reality star.
She posted $11,000 bond and was released.
Mueller is due back in court on December 19.
