Charlie Sheen and his wife Brooke Mueller did cocaine and drank alcohol right before she went into rehab, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
What’s more, the two often partied heavily during the past months.
RadarOnline.com was the only news organization to report that Charlie had been told to go to rehab but was resisting. That report was denied last week by Team Sheen – but on Tuesday Sheen announced that he was indeed checking into rehab.
And that’s because he’s been heading down a slippery slope headed toward his old life of addiction. Sheen has been in rehab twice before and previously said that drinking alcohol after coming out of rehab the first time triggered a relapse that sent him back in.
Sheen began boozing again months ago, RadarOnline.com has reported and a source close to the situation said: “The one thing he and Brooke have in common is their love to party. They’re the Toxic Twins.”
A family member confronted Sheen about his drinking and Sheen reluctantly agreed to hire a “sober coach.” But that didn’t work and Sheen had been drinking at 8:30 am Christmas when he was arrested on domestic violence charges.
Now, RadarOnline.com has learned that Sheen’s slide back into drug use was getting worse. “Both Brooke and Charlie are addicts,” the source told RadarOnline.com. “It’s not a good combination.”
Charlie did coke with Brooke on Christmas Eve and boozed. “He tried to keep it together for the TV show,” the source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com. “But when social services visited his house Sunday that was it. He knew he had to get help. He didn’t want to risk losing his kids. That was a reality check.”
Charlie dragged his feet until the last minute, not checking into rehab until after 9 pm Tuesday – hours after his reps announced he was in.
“He knows he has to get clean but it’s hard and he didn’t want to go,” the source said. “He dragged it out as long as he could.”
