Denise Richards has been cleared of abusing Charlie Sheen's children after investigators concluded there was no case to answer.
Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) have closed their investigation into the Wild Things actress after Charlie's ex-wife Brooke Mueller accused her of abusing her four-year-old twin sons.
Denise, 42, was investigated by the DCFS after Brooke claimed she physically abused and neglected the twins, as well as Denise's own children with Charlie - Sam, nine, and Lola, eight, - and her adopted daughter Eloise, two. But the agency have now concluded there is no case to answer.
A source told website RadarOnline.com: "Child welfare officers quickly established that there was no merit to Brooke's claims and found that no follow-up investigation would be necessary.
"The department, under California law, had to officially look into the claims. Denise was cooperative. The case is closed."
Denise secured temporary custody of Bob and Max in May after 36-year-old Brooke was hospitalised for drug abuse.
But she recently withdrew as their guardian because of their alleged behaviour towards her daughters and they are now living with Brooke's brother.
