Chelsea O'Donnell is leaving home again. Instead of running away this time as she did a couple of weeks ago, she is leaving adoptive mom Rosie O'Donnell to live with her birth mother.

Rosie O'Donnell's spokeswoman Cindi Berger commented on the situation.

“Chelsea made a decision when she turned 18 that she wanted to go to her birth mother. This was her choice,” she said, adding that Rosie O'Donnell won't be issuing a comment.

Chelsea O'Donnell's birth mother, Deanna Micoley, previously accused Rosie O'Donnell and her first wife, Kelli Carpenter, of stealing Chelsea from her.

Just this past March, Micoley said in an interview, “I may not have been the best mother back then. I did drugs and I have a criminal record because of it. But I surely didn’t deserve to have my baby stolen from me!”

Chelsea O'Donnell made the decision to live with her birth mother just a week after she was located in the home of an alleged heroin dealer she met on Tinder. Chelsea suffers from an undisclosed mental illness and was reportedly not taking her meds at the time she went missing.

Rosie O'Donnell issued a statement via her rep when Chelsea O'Donnell was located at the home of Steven Sheerer in New Jersey.

“Rosie is relieved to have Chelsea back safely but is obviously very concerned about her well-being.”

Rosie must now be heartbroken that the daughter she adopted and no doubt loves is returning to her birth mom.

It will be interesting to see if Kelli Carpenter comments on Chelsea O'Donnell's decision to leave Rosie and live with her birth mom.
