Rosie O'Donnell Shares Photo of Her Son After Daughter Chelsea Moves Out
O’Donnell took to Instagram on Wednesday to document some fun in the sun with her children.
“My son,” she captioned a picture of her 15-year-old, Blake, kayaking on the Hudson River and smiling at the camera.
She also tweeted a similar photo, writing: “My son in the Hudson.”
O’Donnell’s adoptive daughter Chelsea, 18, went missing in August after going off her mental illness medication. New Jersey police found her at the house of alleged heroin addict Steven Sheerer, 25, who has been charged with sending her a nude photo and endangering the welfare of a child.
Sheerer’s attorney told the Associated Press that his relationship with Chelsea was consensual and that they began dating on the dating app Tinder, on which she identified herself as 19.
“He was involved with a minor, and Rosie’s concern has been and always will be the health, safety and well-being of her daughter,” O’Donnell’s publicist, Cindi Berger, said in a statement to PEOPLE. “Rosie is profoundly appreciative for the work the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office has done and the diligence of the local police.”
Chelsea successfully pleaded with a judge to lift a no-contact order between her and Sheerer on Friday. She has also moved out of her family’s New York house and into the home of her biological mother, Wisconsin resident Deanna Micoley.
