“Addiction-plagued ‘Full House’ star Jodie Sweetin checked into rehab after dropping her bid to get full custody of her youngest daughter,” claims RadarOnline.

Picking up a story from sister outlet the National Enquirer, the webloid says the actress “has entered a $50,000-a-month residential treatment facility.”

RadarOnline notes that Sweetin, who has struggled with drug addiction in the past, “denied to The Enquirer that she was entering rehab” — but that didn’t stop both publications from shamefully running with the story anyway.

Sweetin is NOT a patient receiving treatment in rehab.

She is WORKING for one.

The former child star says she serves as a clinical logistics coordinator for an L.A. treatment center, and has been staying in an apartment on the property as she looks for a place to live following her recent split from husband Morty Coyle.

We repeat: Sweet is not in rehab.

As for custody arrangements, Sweetin tells TMZ she’s now seeking joint custody of 2-year-old Beatrix to ensure the little girl has both parents in her life.
