Chelsea is the second of Rosie’s five children. Son Parker was adopted in 1995, followed by Chelsea in 1997.
Rosie started dating her first wife Kelli Carpenter when Chelsea was a baby and they adopted son Blake in 1999. Kelli gave birth to daughter Vivienne.
They split up in 2007 and shared custody of all four children.
Rosie went on to marry Michelle Rounds in 2012 and they adopted a baby girl Dakota in January 2013. Dakota is now part of a custody battle as the pair split early this year.
Chelsea’s disappearance comes just a few months after Chelsea’s biological mother claimed the controversial comedian took advantage of her drug addiction to ‘steal’ her newborn child away from her.
Deanna Micoley accused O’Donnell of stealing her baby girl who is now 17 and claims that she is back in contact with her daughter who now hates the multi-millionaire.
Deanna claimed, “I believe Rosie O’Donnell knew that I was in no condition to sign away my parental rights to my daughter. She did the worst thing one woman can do to another woman – take her child!”
Deanna claimed in the interview that she and Chelsea have been in contact through Facebook and text.
It was during these exchanges that Chelsea allegedly revealed she is having problems with her adoptive mother.
Deanna stated, “Chelsea has told me she had issues with Rosie. I believe Rosie has abandoned her. Since about the age of 12, Rosie basically shipped off Chelsea to different boarding schools.”
