Brooke Mueller

My Charred, Black Hands

Are NOT From a Crack Pipe

12/8/2012 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1208-brooke-mueller-hospital-tmzBrooke Mueller maintains the black soot-like substance covering her hands last night was NOT from drug use ... just good old, fashioned spray paint (which she used for painting).

Brooke was out in L.A. Friday night -- just hours after being released from the hospital for an alleged drug overdose -- sporting some pretty nasty looking hands.

She tells TMZ ... it's not what you think. Brooke says she's been spray painting a lot for her artwork (see below) and that is why her hands were so dirty in the video.

Mueller says she's been sober for MONTHS ... but nobody seems to believe her.

So to recap ... she says her jewelry-making-bender caused her to pass out cold on Friday and her artwork made her hands black.

Who knew art looked so ... suspicious?

The black chacole stuff that hospitals use to make you throw up after you have taking something you shouldnt will also stain you skin black if you get it on there....

Watching the video from earlier, it's also on her coat/whatever she's wearing there in the car. It also looks to only be on the back of her hands. It all seems pretty weird, and I was a studio art major.

How the hell is that considered art unless you are straight up looney. She probably saw the pictures online and quickly spray painted some random ****

Hey Brooke, it's called huffing and we know all about it. You're spraying paint into a rag and inhaling the vapors and paint gets on your hands from holding the rag.

We're not buying your BS excuse of an exhausting all-night jewelry making bender, because we all noticed your blackened druggie hands, and now you come up with this imbecilic spray paint story. Nice try, moron.

Umm.... I'm failing to see how her hands look anything like they've been charred from hitting up a pipe or foil. Even the sloppiest most trashiest tweaker/crackhead isn't going to be THAT crazy sloppy with soot all over their hands.

As for her children - she's wealthy and has a nanny raising them like any good Hollywood elitest would.

The end of the tape: she'll kill herself, Charlie will have something to do with the kids alongside a high-paid nanny raising them. They will then write a book later in life while enjoying the riches their dysfunctional parents have earned for them.

Druggies ALWAYS think that whatever they do when high is Godlike.

I thought she was "making jewelry".
Now she was "making art".
Which is it?

Im a house painter. im also an ex crack addict. her hands look exactly like mine did 3 days ago when I spray painted a customers iron hand railings. When I smoked crack, my hands NEVER EVER got that bad. Any carbon would be on ones fingertips, not the entire had. Im not familiar with this person but Im confident from the pics that ppl are jumping to conclusions.

I happen to believe her about it not being residue. It wouldn't be all over her hands.
