Charlie Sheen, Brooke Mueller Appear in Court over Custody of Twin Boys

By Nottage and Ward on April 19, 2011

KTLA reports that infamous actor Charlie Sheen and his estranged third wife Brooke Mueller appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom on Tuesday morning, April 19, 2011, for a custody battle regarding Max and Bob, their 2-year-old twin boys.

The couple filed for divorce in November 2010, but the divorce is not expected to be finalized until May of this year. A custody agreement was reached before the divorce filing in which Mueller was awarded primary physical custody of the boys. However, the couple recently has argued over child visitation arrangements. In March, Mueller was granted a temporary restraining order after she alleged Sheen had threatened to kill her, resulting in a court order that removed the children from Sheen’s home.

It was expected that Sheen would request to have full custody, arguing that Mueller had suffered a drug relapse and thus not fit to care for their children. Mueller reportedly checked into a drug rehabilitation center recently and it is believed that her mother is caring for the boys. On Friday, April 15, it was reported that Mueller refused a drug test, despite the fact it was required under the terms of her child custody agreement with Sheen.

The custody battle took place in private, despite Sheen’s request that reporters be allowed a presence at the proceedings. Mueller had requested privacy, stating that publicity would not be in the best interests of their children. The results of the proceedings were sealed by the judge, and neither Sheen nor Mueller commented on the outcome when leaving the courtroom.
