This week, Chelsea moved out of O’Donnell’s home to live with her biological mother and told that “everything is fine” with her. But since Chelsea has displayed sort of questionable judgment as of late, her decision to leave home naturally seems like cause for concern at first glance.
The teen was found hours after Rosie posted the alert at the home of a 25-year-old she met on Tinder.
Rosie O’Donnell/via Twitter Chelsea O’Donnell went missing for a week earlier this month before being found in the home of a New Jersey man. He faces charges of child endangerment and distribution of obscenity to a minor. Rosie’s publicist has confirmed that the comedian’s father, Edward Joseph O’Donnell, has died of cancer at age 81.
When the former “The View” star made a public plea after Chelsea’s August. 11 disappearance, she mentioned Chelsea is mentally ill.
“I believe Rosie O’Donnell knew that I was in no condition to sign away my parental rights to my daughter!”
The insider also claims the comedienne refused to give Chelsea her birth certificate or social security card. “Chelsea made a decision when she turned 18 that she wanted to go to her birth mother”, a rep for Rosie told.
Although Rosie O’Donnell is said to have “good relationship” with her daughter, a source revealed to People that Chelsea was always a little uncomfortable that O’Donnell is her mother. “This was her choice”.
Rosie O’Donnell lives in South Nyack, New York, about 25 miles north of New York City, and police there had been involved in searching for her daughter since Sunday.
