Jodie Sweetin quickly pours cold water on the rehab rumor which emerged while she's in the middle of divorcing her husband Morty Coyle and heading to a custody battle. The actress who once battled meth addition says she actually works in an L.A. recovery center.
The "Full House" star reveals she serves as a clinical logistics coordinator at the treatment facility, and her employer allows her to live temporarily in a studio apartment on the property as she moves out of the house she shared with her estranged husband.
"I work for the center and they have been really generous in helping me with a place to stay as Morty wanted me out by the end of the month," she tells TMZ. "The owners of the facility said I could stay here as I got things figured out."
Sweetin seems to hint that her estranged husband may be the culprit behind the false rumor. "Breakups are hard and certain people don't make them easier. People get weird and stalkerish ... You never really know someone until you break up with them," she says.
She filed for legal separation on June 19 after one year of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. She is seeking primary physical and legal custody of their daughter Beatrix, while Coyle is asking a judge to grant him joint custody.
