Denise Richards is reportedly taking care of Charlie Sheen’s children with Brooke Mueller because he has a “crazy work schedule”.

The actor’s ex-wife is currently looking after his kids with former spouse Brooke Mueller after she was seeking help for drug addiction.

Apparently Charlie is adamant his offspring are in Denise’s home while he carries out work commitments.

"He loves those kids," a source told People magazine. "But he's got a crazy work schedule, filming two shows a week and would rather they spend time with Denise and their daughters than with a nanny at his empty house."

Brooke is expected to spend a few months at the Betty Ford Center after she reportedly overdosed six times in two years.

Authorities are getting involved with the informal setup as Brooke allegedly wants her children to be cared for by her sibling.

"Brooke is angry that Denise may take the kids," a friend of hers explained. "She's decided she wants the boys to be with her brother and sister-in-law.

"Brooke is determined to get her life back and get the help she needs."

A court hearing is reportedly scheduled for June. On May 7 2013 a Los Angeles county juvenile court judge agreed granted Denise temporary custody of four-year-old twins Max and Bob, a decision supported by Charlie.

"Denise told Charlie that she wished she could take them," an insider revealed. "Someone needed to step up."

Denise, 42, has two daughters, Lola and Sam, with Charlie, and adopted another daughter, Eloise, on her own.

She has quietly cared for Brooke’s kids on several occasions during her battle with drugs.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Pisces:

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
