Thank goodness Charlie Sheen has one responsible ex-wife to watch his children.
Social workers removed Sheen's 3-year-old twin sons from the home of ex-wife Brooke Mueller on Thursday and granted temporary custody of the boys, Bob and Max, to ex-wife Denise Richards, reports E! News. It's the second time Richards has ridden to the rescue; in December she also cared for the boys while Mueller was in rehab.
The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services reportedly had investigated Mueller's home for a year before finally deeming it unsafe. TMZ reports the reason is Mueller's continued use of drugs. E! News says the removal was because Mueller is frequently absent for long periods of time.
One source told E! News that Mueller "hasn't lived in her house for a few weeks. They don't know where she's at. It's been so bad."
A court hearing is expected next week to determine a more permanent custody arrangement.
Sources close to Sheen confirmed that the twins are with Richards, who is the mother of his two youngest daughters. No official word was given as to why Sheen was not granted temporary custody. But really, is anyone surprised considering his history of drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence arrest, wild parties and general crazy behavior?
