Brooke Mueller has been rushed to an L.A. hospital on December 7 after a drug overdose, reports TMZ.

According to the site, Brooke  who was once married to actor/loose cannon Charlie Sheen  was taken from her home in Tarzana, Calif., to a hospital at 11:42 a.m.

TMZ's sources say that Brooke has been using drugs heavily for the past several weeks, with people close to her getting "deeply concerned."

Brooke is said to now be conscious and responsive, although the drug that she was on is unknown.

Meanwhile, Brooke's rep denies that drugs were involved. "An assistant thought Brooke was non-responsive while she was napping and hastily called an ambulance," says the rep. "As a precaution, Brooke was brought to a local hospital and discharged after an hour. She was diagnosed with exhaustion and dehydration and is now fine and resting at home. That's it."

Brooke has reportedly had more than 15 stints in rehab. She was photographed leaving Mr. Chow's restaurant in Beverly Hills last night. 

Our thoughts are with Brooke as she continues to recover.
