Brooke Mueller is back in rehab — as Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife continues to deal with The National ENQUIRER’s blockbuster exclusive that her former husband is HIV Positive!
In an exclusive interview with ENQUIRER Editor-in-chief Dylan Howard, Charlie had discussed Brooke’s reaction to learning of his hidden illness.
“She was sad for me,” Charlie said, “but then realized that I’m a pretty tough customer, and she knew that I would handle it and do whatever I had to.”

Sources told The ENQUIRER, however, that Brooke has now suffered two serious relapses in the wake of The ENQUIRER’s scoop.
The insiders added that a determined Brooke has committed to a six-month stay in the treatment center.
Brooke married Charlie in 2008, and they later had twin sons, Bob and Max — who are currently being watched over by Brooke’s mother and brother, according to ENQUIRER sources.
