Brooke Mueller Sues Rehab Clinic: They Sold Me Down the River

Filed under: Brooke Mueller, Charlie Sheen, Celebrity Justice

Brooke Mueller
is suing the rehab facility she trusted for treatment, claiming the facility SOLD confidential medical information to the media … TMZ has learned.

Brooke’s beef is with the The Canyon rehab facility in Malibu — where she secretly sought help in February 2010 –  at the peak of her domestic violence case against Charlie Sheen.

According to the lawsuit, days after she checked in, news broke that Brooke was seeking treatment for substance abuse  … and Brooke claims rehab staff members leaked the info.

TMZ broke the story after the leak … someone was sending Brooke’s patient admissions document to members of the media … including TMZ, and the form very specifically outlined Brooke’s problems.  TMZ never published info from the document.

Brooke claims it was all a crass money grab from staffers at The Canyon — and now, she’s suing for undisclosed damages, claiming her right to privacy has been violated.

A rep for The Canyon had no comment, although as we first reported, after the leak The Canyon officials said they would conduct their own internal investigation.
