The Curious Case of Charlie Sheen
This has got to be one of the most bizarre (and heart-breaking) custody battle stories ever. Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen has two daughters with former Bond girl Denise Richards. After their divorce, Sheen married socialite Brooke Mueller and fathered twin boys with her. Three years ago, Charlie filed for divorce from Brooke as well, and now former wife Denise finds herself caring for four Sheen kids (their two girls and his two boys with Brooke) even though Charlie and Denise have not reunited. Not surprisingly, Denise and Brooke do not get along, yet Denise plays mum to her kids because Brooke has been in and out of rehab (22 times at last count) and the toddler boys are not safe in Brooke’s care. The latest in this terrible tale is Denise’s claim that she is unable to continue fostering Brooke’s boys — allegedly because they have been “violent” towards her own daughters, after recent interactions with their birth mother. Just days ago, an emergency meeting was held at the Child Protective Services office in Los Angeles, where authorities mediated a heated discussion between Denise and Brooke. Charlie Sheen — the only common factor in this whole mess — did not attend.
