Chelsea O’Donnell, who went missing earlier this month, left home once again, this time to go live with her birth mother.
Rosie O’Donnell’s adopted daughter turned 18 this week.
According to TMZ, Chelsea O’Donnell’s birth mother Deanna, who gave her up for adoption in 1997, drove from Wisconsin to New York to pick Chelsea up on August 24, the day she turned 18 and is legally an adult.
Rosie O’Donnell allegedly cautioned Chelsea against leaving with Deanna and TMZ reports that the comedian has cut her off financially.
Deanna’s response to all questions about her daughter has been the same: “Leave my daughter out of Rosie’s stuff.”
Chelsea O’Donnell was found on August 18 in the company of 25-year-old Steven Sheerer.
Steven Sheerer was charged on August 24 with third-degree distribution of obs**nity to a minor and third-degree endangering the welfare of a child, as Chelsea was only 17 at the time.
The man found with Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter Chelsea has been arrested for endangering the welfare of a minor.
Chelsea O’Donnell, 17, was missing for more than a week when police discovered her at a New Jersey residence with Steven Sheerer, a convicted drug offender.
It wasn’t immediately known how Chelsea O’Donnell came to be with 25-year-old Steven Sheerer, and there was no indication of foul play.
However, since Chelsea’s recovery, Rosie O’Donnell gave police permission to search the cell phone her daughter had been using.
According to police, “evidence of inappropriate communications over the last several weeks between Sheerer and the minor,” leading to his arrest on August 21 for third degree endangering the welfare of a child. It’s unclear what exactly the messages contained.
Steven Sheerer is being held in an Orange County jail on $40,000 bail, and could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
The man was previously charged with child endangerment in 2012, as well as heroin possession.
Rosie O’Donnell ranted on Twitter earlier this week about Steven Sheerer’s criminal history and alleged inappropriate behavior with her daughter Chelsea.
Rosie O’Donnell tweeted about Steven Sheerer, the man her daughter Chelsea was found with on Tuesday evening, revealing his criminal past.
The comedian linked to a 2012 article about Steven Sheerer getting charged with third-degree possession of heroin, third-degree endangering the welfare of a child, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
According to ET, Steven Sheerer was found with 17-year-old Chelsea O’Donnell at a house in the Shore area of New Jersey on August 18.
Rosie O’Donnell had previously revealed that Chelsea, who suffers from mental health issues, had been missing for a week.
