Charlie Sheen does not intend to go to court to seek custody of his twin sons, Bob and Max, despite ex-wife Brooke Mueller’s relapse and arrest for drug possession, according to sources close to the actor.
Sheen bailed out Mueller after she was arrested over the weekend inAspen,Colorado, and charged with felony drug possession and a misdemeanor charge of assault. That sparked speculation that he would seek sole custody of his two children with Brooke, especially as the terms of their custody agreement mean that both the parents must undergo regular drug testing.
Apparently, Charlie Sheen has decided that it would not be in his sons’ best interests for him to pursue any changes in custody.
Sources close to the situation say that despite her addiction problems, Brooke is a good mother to their two-year-old twins. It seems that as well as bailing her out, Charlie has decided to help Brooke as much as he can.
A complication with Brooke Mueller having custody of Bob and Max is that both her family and medical professionals feel that she needs to go to an inpatient rehab for at least nine months. Brooke has battled an addiction to crack cocaine for most of her adult life, and has been told that she must enter a long term treatment facility, immediately, if she is to beat this and survive.
So far, Brooke has refused any such treatment. She still wants to call the shots.
The twins primary caregivers remain who they have largely always been: nannies and Brooke’s devoted mom and step-father.
It was a nanny who was looking after the two-year-old boys the night Brooke Mueller went clubbing and got arrested for drug possession and assault.
Charlie Sheen flew home from Columbia after news of the arrest, to help care for the twins with Brook’s parents and now he says he just wants her to get the help she needs.
