Brooke Mueller, the troubled ex-wife of Charlie Sheen, was rushed to hospital on Friday morning after an overdose, it has been reported.
The previous evening Brooke Mueller was seen looking glassy-eyed as she stepped out of a car upon her arrival for dinner at Mr. Chow.
However, Brooke Mueller’s publicist has spoken out to claim that no drugs were involved.
Instead, Steve Honig said in a statement that Brooke Mueller was mistakenly believed to be unresponsive while sleeping.
He said: “An assistant thought Brooke was non-responsive while she was napping and hastily called an ambulance.
“As a precaution, Brooke was brought to a local hospital and discharged after an hour. She was diagnosed with exhaustion and dehydration and is now fine and resting at home. That’s it.”
Brooke Mueller, 35, who has a long history of drug abuse, was taken to a Los Angeles hospital in the late morning, according to TMZ.
The website reports that the Los Angeles City Fire Department informed them that Brooke Mueller was transported to the hospital from her Tarzana home at 11:42 a.m.
Sources reportedly told the website that people around Brooke Mueller are “deeply concerned” and allege that she has been taking drugs for several weeks, it has been claimed.
But Brooke Mueller is so determined to prove she was not on drugs, she told Radar Online: “I am going back to the hospital to get the test results that will prove that I wasn’t on drugs.”
For her meal out on Thursday night, Brooke Mueller went for a boho look, sporting a jewelled headband and a leather jacket, trousers and studded boots.
Brooke Mueller was placed on probation for one year after she plead guilty to possession of cocaine on March 19.
She has been in rehab multiple times.
Brooke Mueller married Charlie Sheen in May 2008 and gave birth to their twin sons Bob and Max nine months later.
Charlie Sheen filed for divorce from Brooke Mueller in November 2010, and the pair’s divorce became effective the following June.
