Brooke Mueller Not In Rehab - Lawyer Says

1/27/2010 2:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen's wife Brooke Mueller is not in rehab, contrary to an Internet report -- according to her attorney.

TMZ just spoke with Brooke's lawyer, Yale Galanter, who told us Brooke is convalescing from her pneumonia and the infection she's been battling.

Brooke is not there for drug rehab, Galanter says. She is at a place that cares for patients convalescing from serious illnesses. Galanter is clear ... this is not a rehab facility.

Galanter says Charlie Sheen and the nannies are taking care of the couple's two kids at the family house.

Galanter confirms what we first reported -- that Brooke should be in North Carolina about a week.

So it's possible she'll be in Aspen for the hearing on February 8 to relax the protective order.

What do you mean, "contrary to an internet report?" Shouldn't that read: "contrary to a TMZ report?" LOL.

She had to go all the way across the country to recover from pneumonia??? Sounds more like she was hoping to have some privacy in rehab!!

Yeah, right convalescing bull crappy. There's plenty of convalescent facilities here in California. Yeah it's the spin doctors. She should stay in rehab for her crack addiction - oh sorry for her drinking problem, or is it both - at least 3-6 months.

Who in the hell lives in California but goes to North Carolina to recover from pneumonia? That's preposterous.

Sounds like an Intervention episode to me.
You live in CA but there's a great place in NC.
The plane is waiting at the airport.

TMZ was not the only ones reporting this. I read it on Us Weekly's site as well.

And I agree...who goes from CA to NC to recooperate from pneumonia. Especially since she cannot fly because of the fluid in her lungs and it would have meant taking a train or car?

Right! Of course the Atty is going to say that, it's his job. You couldn't pay me the money Charlie's making to live their life. I'm happy, broke and drug free...LOL

Just to reiterate what several others have pointed out -

Brooke was NOT TO FLY from California to Colorado for the court hearing because she was NOT TO FLY until the fluid in her lungs resolved. This is standard medical advice and for good reasons (I'm an RN.)

Now we hear she has FLOWN - one assumes she did not take a train or car or boat - to North Carolina.

Something is fishy.
