Former "Full House" child star Jodie Sweetin adamantly denied being in rehab this week, instead claiming she just works at the Los Angeles facility she has been spotted at recently.

Sweetin, who played middle sister Stephanie Tanner in the family sitcom, told TMZ she is currently living in a studio apartment on the rehab's property following her separation from third husband Morty Coyle.

"I am absolutely NOT in rehab. I work for the center and they have been really generous in helping me with a place to stay as Morty wanted me out by the end of the month," Sweetin, 31, told TMZ. "The owners of the facility said I could stay here as I got things figured out."

Sweetin struggled with a meth, ecstasy, and cocaine addiction for years and wrote about her battle in her 2009 memoir, "unSweetined."

"I was a selfish, self-serving, insecure, angry, and fearful person living a double life. I covered up my problems by pretending to be happy and saying that everything was fine," she wrote.

Sweetin and Coyle, who have 2-year-old Beatrix together, got married in March 2012 in a private Beverly Hills ceremony, but didn’t announce their union until a year later. Sweetin was previously married to Shaun Holguin from 2002 to 2006. She was married to Cody Herpin from 2007 until 2010. The couple had a daughter named Zoie together.

Sweetin told TMZ she is not planning to file for sole custody of Beatrix because she wants her daughter to "have both of her parents in her life."
