Brigitte Nielsen in Rehab -- Who Knew?!

7/19/2007 7:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brigitte NielsenIn case you thought rehab was just for twentysomethings, TMZ has learned that 44-year-old Brigitte Nielsen checked into rehab a few weeks ago -- and is getting out in the next 24 hours. Clean and sober and completely under the radar!

A source close to Nielsen tells us she checked herself into North Hollywood's Cri-Help treatment facility several weeks ago and is doing well. Although it isn't known what Flava Flav's ex-girlfriend is in treatment for, our source says, "It was her decision," adding "It was the right time." Cheers to that!

Looks like Lindsay and Britney have someone else they can not drink with all night!

She needed to be in rehab since she fell in love with Flava Flav.

Let me guess, you're a twenty-something person that wasn't around 20 years ago. Brigitte Nielsen lived like a tramp from 1985-90 when she was married to Sylvester Stallone and then had a sexual liason with another woman. Then she dump Sly for New York Jets football player Mark Gastineau. That marriage didn't last long either.

OK - she checked herself into rehab???? She's a minimum of 44 years old, has a bunch of kids she probably doesn't even see, and now she's an addict in rehab?? I think she's just looking for attention. About the picture - well I thought it was David Bowie during his 'Ground control to Major Tom' era. LOL

I have a son who has struggled long and hard with drugs so I have great empathy. I wish her the BEST OF LUCK with her recovery. Anyone that has not struggled with addiction cannot understand the demons that haunt addicts.
