The lawyer for Charlie Sheen‘s wife Brooke Mueller is denying a report that she is in rehab.
She is undergoing treatment at a drug and alcohol rehab center in North Carolina, according to Entertainment Tonight.
But Brooke’s attorney denies the report and says she is at a place that takes care of patients recovering from serious illnesses.
RadarOnline.com has confirmed with several sources that rehab-grad Mueller has been partying again in recent weeks.
RadarOnline.com previously reported that Mueller was in rehab for crack addiction at at Beit T’Shuvah in Los Angeles. Mueller has also been through alcohol rehab previously, as RadarOnline.com reported.
After Galanter’s denial, Entertainment Tonight struck back by adding new information to their report, claiming that Mueller is at Two Dreams Outer Banks drug and alcohol rehab center in North Carolina.
Mueller was recently treated and released from an L.A. hospital, reportedly for an infection related to oral surgery.
Yale Galanter, Brooke’s attorney, denies that she is in rehab and says she is in North Carolina recovering from pneumonia and an infection.
That explanation raises eyebrows. Why would a person with pneumonia fly across the country to recover instead of simply going home or to one of L.A.’s top hospitals?
Also Galanter has been burned with the truth before. When he represented O.J. Simpson he vigorously and repeatedly denied reports that O.J. was writing a book, discussing how, theoretically, he would have committed the murders of his ex-wife and her friend. Just weeks after Galanter went on several national TV shows with his denials O.J. admitted he had written the book.
Now the lawyer says that Mueller is not checked into rehab and simply recovering.
Mueller has been arrested twice previously, once for DUI and another time on an outstanding warrant for cocaine possession.
She called 911 Christmas day and told authorities that Sheen had choked her, put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her. He was arrested on two felonies and one misdemeanor.
A court order remains in effect that prevents Mueller and Sheen from communicating with each other following that incident at their rented home in Aspen, Colorado.
Mueller’s attorney, Yale Galanter, tried to dismiss it as one bad night. But RadarOnline.com confirmed that both Mueller and Sheen had been boozing and partying the previous night and into the morning and both had alcohol in their systems at 8:30 in the morning when police arrive.
Amazingly, Sheen had traveled to Aspen with a sober minder, who accompanied the couple to dinner. But the sober minder did stop anyone from drinking. Sheen, who has been through rehab twice, has yet to address his relapse publicly.
Sheen is scheduled to be in court in February to face charges related to the Christmas incident.
Sheen and Mueller have been married nearly two years and have twin boys, born last April.
Both are miserable in the marriage, multiple sources confirm to RadarOnline.com. Sheen is terrified that he will land behind bars if Mueller testifies against him in the domestic violence case. His handlers have made it clear to her that if the Two and a Half Men star is locked up, Brooke will receive very little money and her lifestyle will change dramatically.
Mueller had consulted a divorce attorney before Sheen’s arrest. In fact, his Christmas explosion was triggered by Brooke telling him she was going to divorce him and take their kids, according to police accounts.
She stopped cooperating with police and hired Galanter. If Brooke recants her story she could face charges connected to lying to authorities. If she refuses to cooperate with police, or softens her story, Sheen could escape jail time and Mueller, multiple sources tell RadarOnline.com exclusively, will be looking to sweeten her prenuptial deal considerably.
Sheen’s ex-wife Denise Richards appeared on Oprah Winfrey‘s show Tuesday and said: “I can’t control what Charlie does.”
