Well, when it comes to the news that they're living apart, we guess it's not that easy to hide.
Now Nick has finally responded to the rumors, and his answer confirms our worst fears for the pair. He said:

We don't know which is worse:
The trouble Brooke Mueller has gotten herself into or the terrible friends she has that are selling her out to the media, which doesn't really help the girl's recovery!
According to friends of Brooke, who was arrested this weekend on cocaine possession and assault charges in Aspen (sounds familiar), "Brooke can't stay sober on her own," and she desperately needs to go back to rehab. The source adds:
"Maybe this [arrest] will force her to go into a treatment center for a long stay. Thirty-day rehabs won't work for her. Her family has been trying to get her to do this, now maybe the court will force her to get the help she needs! She has enough family to take care of the kids while she's away."
While Mueller's rep, Steve Honig, declined to comment following the arrest for the sake of his client, he lifted his silence ban to say this about Brooke's so-called friends:
"I think anyone who is truly a friend of Brooke's would not be spending their time talking anonymously and behind her back to the media. I seriously question the validity of any comments made by these people alleging to be friends with Brooke."
Yeah, we agree with you there buddy, but these "friends" do make one good point - Brooke needs HELP! She needs legit, serious looking after. She's a mom for crying out loud! This is not the kind of shenanigans those boys should be around. Hell, they were taken away from their father originally BECAUSE of this very same environment.
Help the children by helping yourself, Brooke!
