Lawyer: Charlie Sheen’s Wife in Wellness Program, Not “Rehab”

 Alison Buck/

Charlie Sheen's wife Brooke Mueller has not checked into a treatment center despite a flurry of internet rumors Wednesday morning, her attorney insists to

Entertainment Tonight had reported that Mueller was in a drug and alcohol center in North Carolina. RadarOnline even goes as far to say she was smoking crack before going to rehab.(Mueller, 32, was arrested on a DUI charge in 1996 and for cocaine possession in 2001.)

But her lawyer, Yale Gallanter, tells Us she is in a wellness program. "Brooke is not in rehab," he says. "She is in North Carolina with her mom for some R & R pursuant to doctor's orders." 

Mueller was hospitalized last week for pneumonia. She was released this past Monday. Her lawyer tells Us, "She is still recovering from her recent infection and pneumonia."

Mueller still cannot communicate with Sheen, 44, due to a protective order provided to her following an alleged domestic incident Christmas Day.

But Sheen, along with the help of nannies, are looking after their 10-month-old twin sons, Bob and Max.
