Charlie Sheen's Wife

In New Rehab, Plans Suit

2/22/2010 9:36 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brooke Mueller, Charlie Sheen's wife, is in a new rehab facility and she plans to sue the one she just left for allegedly violating her privacy ... TMZ has learned.

Brooke's lawyer, Yale Galanter, tells TMZ, "Brooke was forced to leave The Canyon rehab facility because of the security breach." As TMZ first reported, someone from the facility leaked Brooke's admission form to the media, which contained very personal information about her substance abuse.

Galanter says he will file a lawsuit on behalf of Brooke against The Canyon and plans "to have the individual responsible for leaking the information arrested."

Galanter tells TMZ that Brooke is continuing her rehabilitation "in a private, more secure, confidential environment" and that "Brooke no longer feels she can go into a public facility because of the breach of confidentiality The Canyon committed."

Galanter says the new facility is a private home in the L.A. area "which specializes in the type of treatment that Brooke needs so she can be the best mom she can be."

We're told Brooke entered the new facility early this AM.

And in a related story, Galanter confirmed TMZ's earlier story that L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services visited Brooke and Charlie's kids last night and that it was a "routine" visit and requested by the Pitkin County Department of Social Services after the Christmas day incident in Aspen.

A rep for The Canyon had no comment.

Way to go Brooke! You are a real alcoholic........
Putting everything before your sobriety.
No one cares you are in rehab except you.

Where is all the story framing treatment that Tiger got? TMZ drags Tiger through the mud, while wildly speculating about what occured. Meanwhile Brooke Mueller gets a professional sounding story, and TMZ won't even tell us the facts that they know (what drugs she uses).

So what?!? She goes to rehab and we are all supposed to feel bad for her, and wish her to get well? Meanwhile Tiger is an evil man, and no redemption is possible for him?

TMZ supports Misandry.

The hospital SHOULD be sued. Patient information is expected to remain confidential.

Good for Brooke! Regardless why she is doing this or whatever is going on with her life, patient privacy is still important. I hope Brooke & Charlie put The Canyon out of business!

Q    

She has the same lawyer OJ had and he lost...have fun Brooke, when you should be concentrating on getting clean and sober, you are out after money and ruining some intake clerks life.

You're as sick as they say you are...heck you married a whacko, so took one to knew one huh? Pray for the children of these two, the genes cant be good in the depression and addiction areas and given what they have and seem to will, get exposed to from these two, god help them and society.

Martin, you were a poor Father, too busy out protesting everything about the Country you profess to love while your son was hurting and in need of help. Now we're stuck with him and now apparently too his wife.

Just to clear this up, Brooke has a severe crack cocaine habit that prohibits her from performing her motherly duties, and now she is somehow trying to parlay this into financial gain?

Rehab for crackheads simply turns them on to something else.

She'll be snorting pills before summer.

The clerk should know better than to divulge private patient info to the public.
The clerk no doubt got fired immediately.
HIPPA laws exist for a reason.

This just sounds like an excuse for her to leave rehab. Crackhead can't even take care of her kids and stay clean through Christmas and somehow I'm supposed to feel sorry for her? Umm...NO.

How about she concentrates on getting well and taking care of her kids instead of worrying about a lawsuit?

dirty diana    

they should have double the penalty for the one who violated her privacy for sure, he/she did get canned and it's a matter of integrity...all for a buck, is why he/she told the story, she deserves to sue them, and I am not a brooke fan either, just know this was wrong.
