Brooke Mueller 'to win child custody in next year'
Brooke Mueller is apparently likely to get custody of her twins back, if she can prove she's sober.
The socialite has twins Bob and Max with her actor ex-husband Charlie Sheen.
Brooke has struggled with alcohol and drug addiction for some time, and her kids were taken from her in May, when she was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold at the UCLA Medical Center.
She was later admitted to rehab and custody of her twins was given to Denise Richards, who was also previously married to Anger Management star Charlie.
Now TMZ claims Brooke could be on track to winning back custody, as long as she proves she's successfully overcome her addictions.
According to the website, this development could happen "over the next year".
"Sources connected to the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services tell us - officials have agreed to return custody of Brooke and Charlie Sheen's 4-year-old twins Bob and Max little by little over the next 6-12 months, starting with monitored visitation, but only after several conditions have been met," TMZ writes.
The first condition is reportedly that Brooke will continue to attend AA and NA meetings when she is released from the live-in rehab facility she's currently staying in next month.
Others include obeying doctor's orders and showing consistent improvements.
Apparently officials will monitor her over the next six months before considering the introduction of visitation.
If Brooke shows signs of improvement, parenting time will reportedly increase until she shows she's ready for custody.
It was recently reported Denise is very keen for the children to stay with their half-sisters Sam, nine, and Lola, seven.
“The twins are a part of Denise’s family, and they love being with their sisters,” a source told Radar Online.
“It’s a very happy household. It gets a bit chaotic, but Denise can handle it.”
