Reports have been swirling that Charlie Sheen's ex, Brooke Mueller, had given up their twins, Bob and Max last week because of "suspected drug use" at her home.

TMZ reported that the 4-year-old twins were taken Thursday night from Mueller and were staying with Sheen's other ex-wife, Denise Richards.

Now Mueller's rep is clarifying what's been happening.

"Despite reports to the contrary, Brooke is currently at UCLA Medical Center where she has been since being admitted May 3," rep Steve Honig tells USA TODAY in a statement.

"Brooke will be there for several more days, and will likely transition directly into a residential treatment facility to get help for prescription drug abuse."

He confirms that Bob and Max are with Richards, adding, "Brooke misses her children, and wants to get healthy so she can resume her life and get back to being a mom."

Us Weekly reports that Mueller's most recent rehab stay was in December of last year, where she was treated for an addiction to Adderall.
