Days after Brooke Mueller lost custody of her twins Bob and Max, her rep has revealed that she has been hospitalized for prescription drug abuse.
Mueller voluntarily enrolled at UCLA Medical Center on Friday, following confirmation that her 4-year-old sons with former husband Charlie Sheen were being cared for by Sheen's ex-wife Denise Richards, according to USA Today.
"Despite reports to the contrary, Brooke is currently at UCLA Medical Center where she has been since being admitted May 3," her rep Steve Honig said in a statement. "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."
Honig added that Mueller, 35, knew Bob and Max were safe, explaining, "Brooke misses her children, and wants to get healthy so she can resume her life and get back to being a mom."
The twins were taken from Mueller Thursday night after the LA County D.C.F.S. decided her home was an "unsafe environment" due to her suspected drug use.
Sheen's rep released a statement on the matter, as well, telling TMZ, "Charlie supports the actions of the Department of Children and Family Services. He knows Max and Bob are safe and in a stable, loving environment with Denise and the boys' sisters."
