"No mom is perfect," she tweeted to a follower. "We all do our best."
The comedian added, "When someone you love is drowning in the rapids - you throw everything you can into the water - hoping they will grab on - stay afloat #Believe."
The man in question, 26-year-old New Jersey resident Steven Sheerer, pleaded guilty to endangering the welfare of two children, ages one and three, and was put on probation for possession of heroin, serving 53 days in jail in 2013.
Family members did not suspect foul play with regard to Chelsea's disappearance but rather believed that she ran away from home and voluntarily went to Sheerer's home in the Shore area of The Garden State.
As of now there has been no evidence of drug use and criminal charges are reportedly not warranted at this time.
A source close to the situation told ET that Chelsea, who reportedly suffers from mental health issues, first met Sheerer online.
