Charlie Sheen's estranged wife Brooke Mueller is convinced the star will bounce back following his New York hotel meltdown, branding the actor "a survivor".
The Two and a Half Men star was hospitalised in the early hours of Tuesday (26Oct10) after trashing his suite at the city's Plaza Hotel, following an alleged adverse reaction to medication.
The incident came just nine months after Sheen was arrested following a fight with Mueller in Aspen, Colorado during which he allegedly threatened to kill her.
Sheen has since returned to Los Angeles, claiming media reports of the incident have been overblown, and Mueller insists he won't be fazed by the scandal.
In an interview with U.S. TV show Extra, she says, "Charlie is a survivor, he knows how to handle himself."
Addressing the hotel incident, she also backs up her husband's version of events, adding, "You know how things get blown out of proportion."
