Okay, explanation time.
So this morning, we reported that Brooke Mueller was caught trying to get some cash for some high ticket items at a pawn shop in Inglewood, CA. From the surveillance video, Brooke seemed a bit jumpy and there was speculation that she was selling some of Charlie Sheen's old stuff for drug money. However, since the story broke, Brooke's mother, Moira Fiore, has come forward to explain just exactly what her daughter was doing.
According to Moira, Brooke's trip to the pawn shop was to sell a few things for a friend in need, Moira knew exactly where Brooke was and what she was doing and insisted she didn't know anything about her daughter using.
Um, why wasn't her friend with her at the store? We can understand going for moral support - but this seems a bit much to believe. Also, why was she so jumpy? It's not so much the fact that she is in a pawn shop that has us concerned, as is her behavior in the store. Besides, sometimes a mother will say just about anything to protect their child.
We just hope she is doing right by Brooke with this claim.
