Charlie Sheen’s wife Brooke Mueller has been hiding her addiction to crack and her alcoholism for months, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.
Both Sheen and Mueller are in rehab after months of resisting going in, with their representatives denying reports that they have substance abuse problems.
RadarOnline.com was first to report that Mueller has been smoking crack and was in rehab previously for crack addiction. We’ve also learned that she’s been in rehab more than FIVE TIMES and has been hiding her addiction to crack and her alcoholism from people close to her for months.
But her mother knew something was wrong and urged her to go into rehab. “The fact that she’s married to Charlie and he has a problem too made things worse,” said one source who knows both of them.
Charlie and Brooke spiraled out of control, partying together as their marriage came apart. Team Sheen was hoping the Two and a Half Men star could keep it together long enough to sign a new contract, but ultimately he went into rehab because he was worried about the fate of their infant twin sons.
“Brooke has been out of control for months,” the source told RadarOnline.com. “She smoked crack the night before she had Charlie arrested in December.”
Sheen was arrested on domestic violence charges on Christmas.
Charlie and Brooke also did drugs together the day before she checked into rehab.
“They both have addiction issues and they don’t have a happy marriage,” the source said. “It was just a disaster and they tried to cover it up as long as they could but ultimately the whole situation just exploded.”
Mueller’s years-long alcohol problem and addiction to crack has been punctuated with long bouts of sobriety. But like most addicts, she has relapsed over and over again, said the source.
“She’s been trying to hide it from the world,” the source told RadarOnline.com. “But it was just a matter of time.”
And several people close to Brooke and Charlie are extremely cynical about their future. “Their marriage is terrible,” one person told RadarOnline.com. “Brooke has relapsed over and over again. This is Charlie’s third time in rehab. They bring out the worst in each other.”
