Brooke Mueller has a serious problem with drugs and alcohol, far more serious than anyone could have imagined…
Charlie Sheen‘s jewelery-clad ex-wife and mother to his twin sons has a drug addiction, and it’s a serious one. Radar.com reports that Mueller has overdosed no less than six times in the past two years.
It’s a pretty shocking development, but one that isn’t altogether surprising after her most recent drug overdose on crystal meth, which resulted, Radar reports, in her being placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold at the UCLA Medical Center and sadly losing custody of her boys, Bob and Max, to Denise Richards.
Mueller is enrolled at Betty Ford for the 20th time in her life (yikes, that’s a significant portion of one’s life at the clinic), and sources tell Radar, “It’s amazing Brooke is still alive. She had a horrible Adderall overdose late last year, when she gave the boys to Denise. She had to be hospitalized, and it had definitely taken a toll on her body. The only thing that has saved her when the overdoses occur, is that someone has always been with her, and able to call 911. Brooke doesn’t seem to grasp that her drug addiction and overdoses are going to kill her unless she is able to stay sober. She doesn’t get how lucky she is to still be alive.”
That woman is lucky, but let’s hope her kids will be even luckier, and someday have their mother clean and sober! So sad.
Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston may no longer have been a couple when she died in February, but as he told TODAY’s Matt Lauer in an interview that aired Wednesday morning — his first interview since her death — he still misses her fiercely.
“Our relationship was great,” he said. “I had 14 beautiful, beautiful years with that woman.”
And it’s not just his revisionist history, he insisted: “I can honestly say that — I love that woman with — with everything that I am. And I believe she loved me the same way.”
Still, Whitney and Bobby’s relationship was, almost from the start, filled with conflict of one kind or the other. Brown says he never used hard drugs before meeting Houston, and said that she had used drugs before they were involved. “I worried about it when … we first got together until I tried it,” he said. “And when I tried it, for some reason, I have an addictive personality.”
It has just been revealed that authorities DID find cocaine in Whitney Houston’s hotel room, shortly after she died. Originally we were told no illegal drugs were found… but considering they found cocaine in Whitney’s system during the autopsy, it’s come forward that there was, in fact, cocaine in her hotel room.
Authorities recovered cocaine in the hotel room where Whitney Houston died … TMZ has learned.
As for the quantity of cocaine that was found, official documents show one of the items police recovered was “white, powdery remnants.” Sources tell us the powder was tested and it’s cocaine.
We’re told Beverly Hills detectives are NOT investigating rumors that someone removed cocaine from the room, because they’re convinced it wasn’t removed.
Sources directly involved in the investigation told TMZ early on … no illegal drugs were recovered from the room. We have circled back with these sources who now tell us they were unaware at the time that cocaine was present.
Bottom line — cops are in the final stages of their investigation, but they are not focusing on anyone who possibly removed cocaine, because authorities are in possession of the goods.
There was cocaine in Whitney Houston’s system when she died, this just in from the L.A. County Coroner.
The L.A. County Coroner has just released the singer’s official cause of death — accidental drowning … but the report also notes heart disease and cocaine use were contributing factors to Whitney’s demise.
A source connected to the investigation tells us it is “very possible” Whitney had a heart attack that caused her to lose consciousness and drown. The heart attack may have been triggered by hardening of the arteries as a result of cocaine use.
Whitney was found dead in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in February, and several pills were found at the scene. Police found no evidence of cocaine in the hotel room.
TMZ has gotten their hands on some pictures from inside Whitney Houston’s hotel room the day before she died.
The late singer drank alcoholic drinks shortly before she died, and it’s thought the mix of alcohol and prescription drugs is what caused her death.
TMZ has obtained photos of the room where Whitney died, showing remnants of her final meal. We’re told she ordered a hamburger, fries, a turkey sandwich and jalapenos. The picture also shows a Heineken can and an empty champagne glass. Sources say the glass had been filled with champagne.
The picture (below) was shot in the bathroom after Whitney’s body was removed and shows a tray which contained the turkey sandwich and jalapenos. Family sources say Whitney ate the burger and fries and took the turkey sandwich and jalapenos into the bathroom where she planned on eating both items after her bath.
If you look closely you can see water on the bathroom floor.
As TMZ first reported, authorities told the family Whitney may have suffered a fatal reaction from mixing drugs and alcohol, possibly leading to a heart attack.
Might be a bit early to run around claiming drugs killed Whitney Houston. Maybe we should instead wait to hear from the coroner to start making public statements? Of course the first thing I thought was that Whitney died from some sort of drug overdose (with her history it’s not a big stretch), but I wouldn’t go out and claim it publicly!
Speaking this morning via phone on Good Morning America, Celine Dion didn’t hold back when talking about Houston’s troubled life and legendary career.
“It’s just really unfortunate that drugs, bad people, bad influences took over her dreams, her motherhood,” the French-Canadian star, 43, said of Houston, who famously fessed up in a 2002 interview with Diane Sawyer about using cocaine, marijuana and pills. “When you think about Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson . . . To get into drugs like that for whatever reason–because of stress, bad influence, whatever.”
Dion lamented that her immensely talented idol, who left behind daughter Bobbi Kristina, apparently succumbed like other superstars before her. “What happens when you have everything? Love, support, motherhood…Something happens that I don’t understand. That’s why I’m scared of show business, of drugs and hanging out. That’s why I don’t go to parties!”
What do you think? Was Celine out of line – or do you agree with her?
