Rosie O’Donnell tested positive for marijuana during her bitter custody battle after taking a drug test to try and prove she was clean and sober, a report suggests.

The 53-year-old TV star reportedly submitted a hair follicle to be tested in the midst of her legal dispute with ex-wife Michelle Rounds over their two-year-old adopted daughter, Dakota. 

She agreed to give the sample after her former partner accused her of ‘regularly smoking weed’.

But, according to the National Enquirer, she failed, and is said to be ‘furious’ with the outcome.

A source told the magazine: ‘It came back positive for drugs. She’s been trying to hide her drug use for a long time, and she didn’t realize that marijuana stays in your system for a number of months.’

The insider said the results could be revealed during their next court appearance, which is scheduled for Wednesday, and could blow her chances of getting custody. 

IT consultant Rounds, 43, is seeking full custody of the pair’s daughter because she doesn’t agree with O’Donell’s parenting style, claiming she lets her children do whatever they want. 

In the divorce documents she blasted O’Donnell for ‘drinking a bottle of wine every night’ and condemned the fact she lets her 19-year-old son throw alcohol-fueled parties. 

A representative for the former host of The View however told TMZ in April: ‘This is a distorted perception of Michelle’s reality. It’s sad in every way.’ 

Rounds, who was married to Rosie for three years before their official February split, also told Entertainment Tonight that if she raised their child, the living situation would be in a healthier’ and ‘more protective’ environment.

‘I just want my child to have the best possible environment to grow up in, a normal life. Right now she’s got 24/7 nannies over there at Rosie’s house. I don’t want my child to have a 24/7 nanny,

‘She leaves the baby overnight with nannies, she has the monitor in the nanny’s room.’ 

The pair broke up two weeks after O’Donnell left The View to focus on her family and her health. 

Earlier this month it was revealed that the comedienne cancelled her second adoption because the birth mother said the unborn baby faced health complications. 

Rounds has recently been spotted in LA with model Carmen Ortega. She insists she doesn’t want any money from the dispute.
