Brooke Mueller has quit rehab. The troubled star was at Betty Ford at the same time Lindsay Lohan was, right around when Lindsay left for another facility. Apparently the 35-year-old didn’t like the manual labor she was being told to do, such as chores. Apparently she got so fed up with being told what she do, she just up and left without telling anyone. Here’s more from Radar:
The 35-year-old Palm Beach socialite did not like the manual labor asked of patients at the famed Rancho Mirage, Calif., center, such as chores, a source said.
“Brooke didn’t tell anyone, including her lawyer, that she had left Betty Ford,” an insider close to the situation told Radar.
“Brooke hated Betty Ford because she was required to do daily chores, which she resented. She complained that Betty Ford was just too hard. Betty Ford is hardcore and Brooke just doesn’t respond well in situations where she can’t call the shots.”
But her abrupt move to leave the facility and enroll in a clinic in San Juan Capistrano, Calif. — her 21st stint in rehab — could have severe consequences in her bid to regain custody of her four-year-old twins with the Anger Management star, Bob and Max.
On Tuesday, there will be a routine hearing in the ongoing custody battle, where the judge is expected to grill Mueller’s lawyer about leaving Betty Ford.
“This could have a serious impact on Brooke’s bid to get custody of the twins. Brooke just doesn’t seem to be taking get sober that seriously,” the source said.
“Her doctors at Betty Ford advised her not to leave, but she did anyway. Her counselors will be submitting an extensive report about Brooke’s time at Betty Ford and it won’t be glowing, that is for sure.”
Neither Sheen or the twins’ guardian, the actor’s second ex-wife, Denise Richards, are expected to be in court for the hearing.
I seriously hope she NEVER regains custody of her twin boys. She’s obviously a huge trainwreck, and I fear she’ll never get clean. I know anything’s possible – but she could be clean and sober for years before she’s allowed to be near those kids again. All she sees in them is dollar signs.
