Last week, the 33-year-old was caught on camera trying to hock jewelry at an Inglewood pawn shop. She also allegedly solicited urine from her friends. Then, on Friday, she refused a drug test. The tests are a condition of her custody arrangement with her estranged husband Charlie Sheen.
According to TMZ, signing herself into rehab was a preemptive measure on her part since Sheen’s lawyers intend to raise the issue of the missed test in court Tuesday. That would put their custody settlement in jeopardy.
She and Sheen came to terms on the confidential agreement in March. Under the current arrangement, Mueller receives $55,000 a month and has primary custody of the couple’s two-year old twins, Max and Bob. (Not long after reaching the agreement, Mueller dropped the restraining order she had against Sheen.)
Regardless of her preemptive move, I’m not sure how Mueller’s being in rehab will help her retain custody. All along she’s been painting Sheen as the mentally unstable one. (OK, that hasn’t been a hard sell.) But this isn’t her first time in rehab. She did a stint last year to get treatment for drug and alcohol issues.
