Brooke Mueller, Charlie Sheen’s wife, was in rehab for alcohol abuse when she was pregnant with their twins. exclusively reports that Brooke sought help when five months pregnant after she was confronted after bottles of booze were found in her car.

When one of the couple’s twins was born with a heart problem, the couple argued bitterly and Charlie told Brooke the medical problem was her fault for drinking while pregnant.

On the night of Charlie’s arrest on Xmas morning for allegedly assaulting Brooke both had been up all night drinking heavily.  Although Charlie has been to rehab twice, he has not publicly admitted his Yuletide relapse.

"They both have drinking problems," a source close to the situation said.

"And neither of them should be drinking."
