Rosie O’Donnell’s Adopted Daughter Moves In With Birth Mother
Rosie O’Donnell’s adopted daughter, Chelsea, 18, who was reported missing last week before she was picked up by police in Barnegat Light, New Jersey a day later, is leaving home again, but this time with a plan. The 18-year-old is moving out of the talk show host’s home to live with the woman who gave birth to her.
A representative for O’Donnell has confirmed the news, stating, “Chelsea made a decision when she turned 18 that she wanted to go to her birth mother. This was her choice.” Chelsea’s birthday was this past Monday, August 24. O’Donnell adopted Chelsea during her three-year marriage to ex-wife Kelli Carpenter, which ended in 2007.
