Mueller ‘wants kids out of Richards’ home’

Brooke Mueller

Brooke Mueller’s lawyers are reportedly heading to court today in an effort to remove her four-year-old twin boys with Charlie Sheen from the home of his other ex-wife, Denise Richards.

Brooke’s ex-husband Charlie Sheen agreed to have Denise look after four-year-old Bob and Max for the time being. They were removed from Brooke’s care last week due to her addiction problems.

The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services decided Brooke's home was an "unsafe environment" because of her suspected drugs use.

Charlie and Denise both attended an emergency hearing in Los Angeles Monday on the matter and the court agreed to give her temporary custody.

According to TMZ, Brooke is upset by the court’s decision and wants the children placed with her brother while she is in rehab.

A source told the website a lawyer is going to court today in effort to remove Bob and Max from Denise’s home.

Brooke is said to be fearful Charlie’s alleged temper could put the boys in danger.

Last week Charlie released a statement showing his solidarity with authorities on their decision.

“Charlie supports the actions of the Department of Children and Family Services,” the star’s publicist told Radar Online.

“He knows Max and Bob are safe and in a stable, loving environment with Denise and the boys’ sisters. Charlie will fully cooperate and fully participate in all proceedings.”

Brooke was classed as 5150 under the Californian Welfare Institutions Code. This means she was considered to be a danger to herself and others by a peace officer or clinician due to her unhinged mental state and was involuntarily confined.

It is not clear whether child services and the courts will allow Brooke to resume care of her boys when she leaves a treatment facility.
