Brooke Mueller went to rehab for alcohol abuse while she was pregnant with the couple’s twins, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
The blockbuster revelation adds more controversy to the already volatile situation surrounding the Sheen marriage. Charlie Sheen spent Christmas in a Colorado jail after being arrested on domestic violence charges.
Both Charlie and Brooke had been drinking that night. Charlie, who has been through rehab twice, has not publicly addressed his relapse.
RadarOnline.com has uncovered that Brooke went to alcohol rehab when she was approximately five months pregnant. Sources close to the situation told RadarOnline.com that she was confronted after bottles of booze were found in her car.
When one of the couple’s twins was born with a heart problem, the couple argued bitterly and Charlie told Brooke the medical problem was her fault for boozing while pregnant.
“They both have drinking problems,” said a source close to the situation. “And neither of them should be drinking.”
Brooke has been arrested twice previously, once on an alcohol charge and the other time on a cocaine charge.
Charlie and Brooke both had “sober minders” with them on Christmas, and both consumed alcohol before their physical altercation. Brooke told police that Charlie held a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her.
Brooke has hired Yale Galanter and Charlie’s camp is desperate for her to soften her story about what happened on Christmas to help Charlie avoid a prison sentence. Publicly, lawyers are saying the couple wants to work on the marriage, but Brooke has privately already met with a divorce attorney and wants a better prenuptial deal.
“The marriage has been bad since the beginning,” said one source who knows both Charlie and Brooke. “It was just a matter of time before it exploded publicly.”
Sounds like their “sober minders” weren’t doing a very good job!
