Charlie Sheen's Ex Brooke Mueller Fired Twins' Nanny Before Starting 19th Rehab Stint (EXCLUSIVE)
Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen's twins are staying with the actor's other ex-wife -- Denise Richards -- while their mom is in rehab because she fired their long-time nanny, Celebuzz has learned.
Mueller, 35, checked back into rehab Monday night for the 19th time to seek treatment for an addiction to Adderall, a psycho-stimulant drug commonly used for attention deficit disorder.
Questions were raised when it emerged Richards, 41, had taken in Bob and Max, Mueller's three-year-old sons with Sheen, because the actor reportedly does not have time to care for the kids because he is shooting his hit FX show. Richards will keep them for "an indefinite period of time," it's been suggested.
Now it's emerged why.
"The nanny, Alisa, was the true mother figure for Bob and Max," the source said. "She has been with the boys 24 hours a day, seven days a week. But when Brooke was hospitalized last week when another assistant found her unresponsive and made a 911 call, Brooke blamed Alisa.
"Now, she has cut Bob and Max off from one of the few constants in their life. Alisa is devastated."
Mueller, the third-wife of Anger Management star Sheen, was rushed to the hospital on Dec. 7 after reportedly overdosing on prescription pills. Her rep at the time said she was simply “diagnosed with exhaustion and dehydration.”
"Brooke was upset with the nanny that she also called her mother, Moira," the insider told Celebuzz.
"She instructed Alisa to return the children to her from Denise. When she did, Brooke fired her."
It's not known if the nanny has spoken to Los Angeles County Dept. of Children and Family Services (DCFS), who on Dec. 8, showed up at her Los Angeles house to search for signs of drug use, TMZ reported. Officials also questioned the twins and checked for signs of physical abuse.
Said the source: "People close to Brooke has been bombaring DCFS for months.. worried about the welfare of the children."
