Jodie Sweetin, best known for role on "Full House," vehemently denied rumors that she entered rehab this week.

The actress had reportedly checked into rehab for substance abuse while also dropping her bid to obtain full custody of her youngest daughter Beatrix.

However, on Wednesday, Sweetin called TMZ and explained that she was not being treated in rehab, but that she does work for a treatment center.

Furthermore, the actress made allegations against her ex implying that he had started the rehab rumor in order to get custody of their daughter.

Married just under two years, Sweetin and Morty Coyle, her third husband, announced their divorce earlier this year.

While she formerly revealed a problem with drugs and alcohol, Sweetin said that her ex is plotting against her in "weird and stalkerish" ways.

"Breakups are hard and certain people [her ex] don't make them easier," Sweetin said, according to TMZ Live. "People get weird and stalkerish… You never really know someone until you break up with them."

The former child star went on to explain that she was working for the rehab and that her employer had offered her a place to stay following the divorce from Coyle.

"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," said Sweetin speaking to TMZ. "The owners of the facility said I could stay here as I got things figured out."

Meanwhile, Sweetin and Coyle welcomed daughter Beatrix in 2011, and Sweetin was seeking sole custody of the child. The actress already has one daughter, Zoie, with ex-husband Cody Herpin. The 31-year-old was also married to Shaun Hoguin, but they never had any children.

The actress was cast on "Full House" as Tanner in 1987. The beloved television series also starred John Stamos, the Olsen twins, and Bob Saget, and ran until 1995.
