The custody battle so far has been a long process of accusations, counter-accusations and much bitterness betweeen the warring parents. But a source close to Sheen and Mueller reports that the former couple are now putting their differences aside for the sakes of their sons. They are apparently hoping to reach a custody settlement ahead of their scheduled family court appearance.
Their attorneys appear confident that a settlement can be reached before June 9, and and insider has been quoted as saying “it’s almost a done deal. There are a few very minor details to work out, but both sides are expected to tell the judge that the matter has been settled ahead of time.”
In April, after Brooke relapsed, Charlie Sheen went to court in an unsuccessful attempt to gain temporary custody of the boys while his ex was in rehab. The judge made no change in custody at that time because Brooke had enrolled in an outpatient facility and was getting treatment for her addiction issues. In the meantime, the boys were cared for by their maternal grandmother – usual for them.
Now, Charlie sees the boys every other weekend and as long as Brooke is sober, and actively working on her recovery, Charlie won’t seek any changes in custody, according to the source.
“Charlie’s first concern is for the boys’ safety. Brooke is still in her outpatient rehab program, and she will provide proof of that at the next court hearing.”
