Rosie O'Donnell's Daughter Chelsea Moves in With Her Biological Mother
It comes just two weeks after she vanished from her mother's home in Nyack, New York. She was found just over a week later.
Rosie O'Donnell's daughter Chelsea has left the comedian's home to move in with her biological mother.
It comes just two weeks after she vanished from her mother's home in Nyack, New York. She was found safe just over a week later.
Rosie's rep, Cindi Berger, said in a statement to INSIDE EDITION on Wednesday: "Chelsea made a decision when she turned 18 that she wanted to go to her birth mother. This was her choice."
Chelsea O'Donnell turned 18 on Monday.
Before Chelsea was found safe on August 18, her biological mother, Deanna Micoley, told INSIDE EDITION that she wanted the teen to live with her.
"I want her home with me where she will be understood and loved unconditionally," said Deanna, pictured below. "I'm so worried."
Chelsea was adopted by O'Donnell and her former wife, Kelli Carpenter, as a baby.
Earlier this year, Micoley came forward to say she was Chelsea's biological mother, telling National Enquirer: “Rosie O’Donnell has my daughter. She took her.”
Micoley, who lives in Wisconsin, claimed that Rosie illegally adopted Chelsea in 1997. Micoley said she was high on drugs and Chelsea’s biological father put the baby up for adoption.
“l don't believe I signed my rights and if I did, I was under the influence and I never wanted to give my daughter up for adoption,” said Micoley.
Rosie's spokesperson said in a statement to INSIDE EDITION earlier this year: "It is awful that this woman decided to go public... Rosie LEGALLY adopted Chelsea."
"As an advocate of adoption, Rosie is grateful to all birth mothers everywhere and she hopes that the National Enquirer did not pay this woman."
