The saga between Rosie O’Donnell and her adopted daughter has taken yet another turn — one that could be permanent.
On Wednesday, a rep for the TV personality told Access Hollywood that O’Donnell’s daughter Chelsea “made a decision” to live with her birth mother.
“This was her choice,” O’Donnell’s spokesperson said.
Gossip Cop reports that Chelsea — who ran away from home earlier and spent time with a convicted drug offender she met on Tinder — turned 18 on Wednesday and decided to move to her birth mother Deanna Micoley’s home in Wisconsin.
Micoley drove from Wisconsin to New York to pick up the emancipated teen, and the two rode back to the birth mom’s house, where Chelsea will remain.
The news comes eight days after authorities discovered Chelsea at the home of 25-year-old Steven Sheerer, who was arrested for child endangerment on Aug. 21. O’Donnell posted an alert to her website and Twitter about Chelsea’s disappearance after the teen first went missing on Aug. 11.
