Charlie Sheen's Wife Not in Rehab

There were reports circulating on the net that Charlie Sheen's wife Brooke Mueller had checked into a drug and alcohol rehab center in North Carolina, but it turns out there's no truth to the rumor.

‘Entertainment Tonight’ had reported: “Sources confirm that the Hollywood mom is now seeking treatment at a drug and alcohol rehab centre in North Carolina.”

But Brooke's lawyer, Yale Galanter, tells TMZ Brooke is convalescing from her pneumonia and the infection she's been battling. "Brooke is not there for drug rehab."

She was released from hospital on Monday, January 25, after a near week long stay for "pneumonia" from which she hasn't completely recovered.

Brooke has had a long history of drug and alcohol abuse. She was arrested on DUI charges back in 1996 and for cocaine possession in 2001, so the reports really didn't come as a surprise.

Charlie currently has custody of the kids while Brooke seeks help. More details coming soon!
