Brooke Mueller is so stressed, she telling friends her life is "a living hell," RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting. And Charlie Sheen's estranged wife has turned to none other than Kathy Hilton for support.
"Brooke is leaning on Kathy," a well-placed source tells RadarOnline.com. "She's spending a lot of time with Kathy especially when she has the kids. Bob and Max even call her 'Aunt Kathy'."
Kathy Hilton has known Mueller for the last few years and has grown close to her since Brooke signed on to costar in her daughter Paris' new reality show for the Oxygen network.
As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, it was even Kathy who convinced Brooke to go back into rehab several months ago.
Along with her sober coach, Brooke and her boys spent much of Thursday with Kathy, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal. It was just after 10 pm on Tuesday that police and Mueller's legal reps went to Sheen's home and removed Bob and Max, returning them to Brooke.
Hilton is very protective of Brooke and trying to help her in any way she can, our source tells us. "She loves Bob and Max," the source says, so she's more than happy to support Brooke out with their care.
