Brooke Mueller has reportedly gone to rehab.
The real estate investor - who is married to actor Charlie Sheen - is currently being treated at a drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre in the US and not visiting a spa as it had previously been claimed.
'Entertainment Tonight' reported: "Sources confirm that the Hollywood mom is now seeking treatment at a drug and alcohol rehab centre in North Carolina."
The star left hospital on Monday (25.01.10) after suffering from pneumonia.
It had been alleged she was heading away for a spa break to relax after Charlie - with who she has 10-month-old twin sons Bob and Max - was arrested over domestic violence charges on her on Christmas Day (25.12.09).
However, sources now claim she is seeking professional help.
It has also been claimed Brooke caught pneumonia because of her alleged addiction to drink and drugs.
Gossip website TMZ reported: "Sources tell TMZ the pneumonia Brooke suffered last week was a secondary situation - her immune system had become so weakened by substance abuse that she became susceptible to infection."
Earlier this week, Brooke's mother Moira Fiore was trying to work out what would be the best course of treatment for her daughter, to help her build up her strength and recover quickly.
She told People magazine: "I picked her up Monday night and brought her to a friend's house in Los Angeles where we will stay until we decide what we are going to do and where we will go."
A restraining order taken out by Brooke following the alleged incident has meant her husband has been unable to contact her, apart from during her spell in hospital, when she appealed for the order to be lifted.
However, Charlie has reportedly been allowed to move back into his family home to look after the two babies while Brooke is being cared for.
Her attorney Yale Galanter told E! Online: "Brooke can't be there right now because the children have germs, so as soon as she gets healthier, she will move back into the home."
Brooke and Charlie are due to appear together in court on February 8, to discuss the terms of the restraining order.
