Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter has reportedly moved in with her heroin dealer boyfriend.
Radar Online reports that 18-year-old Chelsea has given up her Hollywood lifestyle completely to be with Steven Sheerer, the 25-year-old man she was found with in August after Rosie O’Donnell reported her missing.
The outlet describes Sheerer’s home as “ramshackle” and said it “looked like a saloon from all the discarded beer bottles inside two large plastic recycling cans.”
It has been a tough time for the O’Donnell family, to say the least. Chelsea reportedly struggles with mental illness, according to O’Donnell’s Twitter page when she was pleading for help finding her daughter.
Chelsea also spoke with a judge in Sheerer’s favor after he was arrested and charged with third-degree distribution of obscenity to a minor and third-degree endangering the welfare of a child, since Chelsea was only 17 at the time she went missing.
Entertainment Tonight reported that Chelsea and Sheerer met on Tinder and she lied about her age, saying she was 19. He had no knowledge that she was underage.
Sheerer was charged in 2013 with third-degree possession of heroin with the intent to distribute, third-degree possession of heroin, third-degree endangering the welfare of a child and possession of drug paraphernalia. He served 53 days in jail and two years’ probation. ET also confirmed that he pleaded guilty to possession of heroin in 2012.
It’s unclear if Sheerer is still selling drugs.
Prior to moving in with Sheerer, Chelsea moved in with her birth mother, Deanna Micoley. O’Donnell’s spokesperson, Cindi Berger, was sure to say this was Chelsea’s decision.
According to reports, O’Donnell was the one who pushed for Sheerer’s arrest after she saw a photo of Sheerer’s crotch on Chelsea’s phone. But Chelsea has begged the judge on Sheerer’s behalf not to take action because she wants to be in a relationship with him. Sheerer still could face up to five years in jail, however, if he is found guilty of the charges involved with being with Chelsea while she was underage.
