believes he's addicted to weed ... and after failing a court-ordered drug test, the rapper will enter a rehab facility for treatment, TMZ has learned.
Scrappy appeared in a Georgia courtroom moments ago, where officials revealed a urine test Scrappy took last week came back positive for marijuana.
TMZ spoke with Scrappy's lawyer, Mawuli Mel Davis
, who tells us ... the rapper will check into a rehab facility before the next court hearing in June.
Davis also tells us ... Scrappy acknowledges he's addicted to smoking marijuana.
We broke the story ... Scrappy was recently jailed for violating his probation
back in March after a dispute over a different pee test. According to court officials, Scrappy tried to turn in a urine sample that was cold to the touch and may have been tampered with ... and when asked to submit another cup, he refused.
Story developing ...
's legal team is headed for court this morning ... and he wants to expose what he believes is a crass ploy by ex-wife Brooke Mueller
to make her brother the guardian of their kids so she can still get her hands on Charlie's gigantic child support checks.
As we previously reported ... Brooke is gunning to wrestle temporary custody away from Denise Richards
, who has been caring for 4-year-old Bob
while Brooke tries to get it together at The Betty Ford Center. Brooke wants her brother to get temporary custody until she's sober again.
Charlie believes the almighty dollar is at the root of Brooke's ploy. He claims Brooke will still have access to Charlie's $55,000 monthly child support check if her bro gets the kids, and that's why she wants Denise out of the picture.
What's more ... sources connected to the case tell TMZ ... Denise has written proof -- in the form of text messages -- in which Brooke makes it clear -- she wants and needs those monthly checks.
Sources say Brooke -- through her lawyer -- will counter that Denise is the one who is in it for the money, although our sources say Denise has not asked Charlie for a dime for taking Bob and Max.
We're told Charlie wants Denise to keep the twins until Brooke is sober and able to prove she'll stay that way. Charlie realizes that could mean Denise could have the kids for a year ... and maybe longer. Charlie will tell the judge he would gladly pay Denise support money for her efforts.
Despite all the drama in their lives, Charlie Sheen
's kids with Denise Richards
and Brooke Mueller
really are one beautiful family.
With Denise having temporary custody over Brooke's adorable twin boys while she's in rehab at the Betty Ford Center, the children enjoyed a family outing to a fair in L.A. this weekend with Denise's dad Irv. As TMZ reported earlier
, Brooke has been trying to get her sons removed from Denise's house and placed in her brother's home because she doesn't trust Charlie (and his temper).
Adults can be such a handful.
is determined to leave The Betty Ford Center
for greener pastures ... but TMZ has learned prosecutors are having none of it.
TMZ broke the story ... Betty Ford doctors have cut Lindsay off from her Adderall, which she has always said was a deal breaker. Sources connected to Lindsay tell us she's going "crazy" and is desperate to move to another facility.
We're told Lindsay has researched other facilities and found one on the west coast which she believes is suitable to complete her 90 days. She wants to move ASAP.
Lindsay is saying she believes Betty Ford is "old school" and is not sensitive to the problems of young people.
But law enforcement sources tell us ... prosecutors are "unbending" -- they will NOT approve any move. As one source put it, "She had 45 days to find a suitable place. She didn't listen to her people and just did what she wanted so it's her problem now." The source adds, "Not gonna happen."
It's Lindsay Lohan
's worst fear ... doctors at The Betty Ford Center
have cut off her precious supply of Adderall -- and now, she's hell-bent on making her escape.
Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ ... doctors at the rehab center evaluated Lindsay this week and decided she does NOT need her Addy pills, despite Lindsay's claims she suffers from ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder).
We're told Betty Ford's doctors almost NEVER give anyone over the age of 15 the powerful drug, because the docs believe there are plenty of substitute meds for ADHD that do the trick without the addictive qualities inherent in the drug. And, we're told, the doctors are well aware many people -- especially Hollywood types -- misuse Adderall as a weight-control drug.
Here's the immediate problem ... Lindsay is telling her friends she CANNOT stay at Betty Ford and wants to be moved to another facility that is not hard-nosed about Adderall.
And this sets up yet another crisis, because it seems inconceivable Judge Jim Dabney and prosecutors would ignore the Betty Ford doctors and trump their diagnosis by letting Lindsay make a move.
has officially dodged the jail bullet, because TMZ has learned prosecutors have officially accepted The Betty Ford Center as a substitute.Judge Jim Dabney
gave Lindsay the green light last week to spend the next 90 days at the famous Rancho Mirage, CA rehab facility, but said prosecutors had until today to lodge any objections.
We've learned ... both the L.A. and Santa Monica City Attorneys have just said it's all good with them.
The question now ... will Lindsay last 90 days at Betty Ford without getting into trouble? You'll recall during her last stint at the facility back in 2010 ... she got into a fight with a rehab worker which ended with lawsuits and criminal investigations.
is making a full-court press to move her twins from Denise Richards
' home to Brooke's brother's home ... because she fears Charlie Sheen
's volcanic temper will put their kids in harm's way.
Sources connected with the custody war tell TMZ ... Brooke's lawyers are going to court today in an effort to remove Bob and Max, the 4-year-old twins, from Denise's home. Brooke wants the kids to stay with her brother while she rehabs at The Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage.
Brooke believes Charlie is violent, and by putting the kids in Denise's care, it exposes them to Charlie. Brooke's lawyers are going to custody court today ... to get what they claim are sealed documents outlining a pattern of violence on Charlie's part. They want to take those documents to dependency court, where a judge stripped Brooke of custody.
Our sources say Charlie and Denise both think it's ridiculous to put the kids in the care of Brooke's bro, because he has no real relationship with the twins. What's more, it would mean uprooting the kids from their school, doctors, family, friends, etc.
Fact is ... Denise has bailed Brooke out of these situations multiple times in the past and Charlie has helped out, so it seems weird that suddenly that arrangement is so risky.
could be getting support from someone who has done cocaine waaaay more than 4 or 5 times ... 'cause Brooke Mueller
's in the house!
Sources familiar with cocaine tell TMZ ... Brooke and Lindsay are currently staying in the hospital wing at The Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage. In fact we're told they've already run into each other and exchanged pleasantries ... not drugs.
Brooke and Lindsay have a connection in one Charlie Sheen
, who has given lots of money to both ... and possibly drugs.
The question -- who mentors who? The person who has more experience with drugs, or the person who was cleaner -- although it's unclear which is which.
and Denise Richards
were in court today as the judge pored over what sources say is a shocking report about conditions in Brooke Mueller
's home ... TMZ has learned.
As you know ... Brooke is in rehab again after falling off the wagon, and the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services was alarmed enough to take Bob and Max and place them in the care of Charlie's ex-wife, Denise Richards.
The 4-year-old twins were also in court -- along with Brooke's attorneys Lori Howe and Angela di Donato, and Charlie's attorneys Mark Gross and Elise Greenberg.
In court, we're told the judge maintained the status quo, allowing Denise to keep the kids for now.
The real question -- will the judge give the children back to Brooke when she leaves rehab, or is the handwriting on the wall that she just can't kick the habit?
and Denise Richards
are in court right now, where a judge is expected to allow Denise to have temporary custody of Charlie and Brooke Mueller
's twins Bob and Max while Brooke gets help in rehab.
The open question ... will child services and the judge be down to let Brooke take the kids back when she leaves rehab -- a place which has become a revolving door for her -- or will they simply say enough is enough, and attempt to strip her of custody?
As we reported, Mueller's 4-year-old twins with Charlie were taken Thursday night after the L.A. County D.C.F.S. decided Mueller's home was an "unsafe environment" due to her suspected drug use.
is NOT drug free at The Betty Ford Center ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected with the rehab queen tell TMZ ... Betty Ford is allowing her to take the powerful drug, Adderall. The reason -- she has an Rx and says she's been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
Lindsay has made it clear over the last month -- she would only go to rehab if she's allowed to take the med
. BUT ... sources tell us doctors at Betty Ford are currently evaluating Lindsay's diagnosis and the efficacy of the drug. If doctors disbelieve her diagnosis or the usefulness of Adderall, they will cut her off.
Adderall is commonly misused by lots of people -- especially actresses -- who take the drug to suppress their appetite.
The good news for Lindsay -- at least she can smoke freely at B.F..
