A shockingly sad development!!
It turns out the Los Angeles County Dept. Of Children And Family Services had a good reason to remove Brooke Mueller's twins from of her custody!
After a multi-day drug binge, Charlie Sheen's troubled ex was deemed was "a threat to herself and others" and she was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold at UCLA Medical Center!!
The 35-year-old mama was 5150'd under the Californian Welfare Institutions Code — you might remember the same thing happening to Britney Spears during her dark days!
According to one source close to Brooke's family, she was out of her mind on drugs when the hospital put her on the psychiatric hold!!
The source revealed:
“Brooke was taken to the medical center on Wednesday night, after she was deemed to be a threat to herself and to others… She had been using drugs for days and was not in her right mind. It was a very sad, sad situation… Once Brooke was admitted, her doctors notified the Department of Children and Family Services and action was taken by the agency immediately to get her children legally out of her care.”
Ugh!! A sad situation indeed!
She might think rehab an unnecessary step, but we're really concerned about her and her family!
Whatever happens with Brooke, we hope her children find a stable, suitable environment in which they can be raised.
