As Charlie Sheen‘s wife Brooke Mueller recovers in ICU at a Los Angeles hospital from an infection following oral surgery, Brooke’s father Jon Fiore exclusively speaks out to RadarOnline.com about what really happened between Mueller and Sheen on Christmas Day, how Brooke is doing now, and where the couple’s twins are.
“That incident in Aspen was a scary thing,” Fiore told RadarOnline.com exclusively. He has been married to Mueller’s mother Miora for six years and considers Brooke his daughter. “It does not happen a lot, but it was true, she was definitely attacked, that is not made up, there was no reason for any of that to be made up.” While Jon and Miora did not witness the incident when Sheen allegedly threatened to kill Brooke (Jon and Miore have their own house in Aspen), they quickly rushed to the scene.
“The police were there,” Fiore recalled. “Everything was just like it was in the police report. We just took care of Brooke and the kids. It was a trying time.”
As for his son-in-law, Fiore only wishes him well, including cheering Sheen on at this weekend’s SAG Awards where he is nominated for Outstanding Male Actor in a Comedy Series for his work on the CBS show Two and A Half Men.
“I hope he wins this weekend, not because he’s my son-in-law but because I think he’s great and all the same people win and Charlie should have won a long time ago.”
As for Brooke and Charlie’s marriage, Jon is leaving that decision up to them and offers his support either way. “It really is up to Brooke and Charlie; you can’t get in their head. I would like to see what ever they want. If they’re both in love with each other and positive and they want to work it out that’s great. We support them.”
While Brooke has been in the hospital, the couple’s twins Bob and Max are being taken care of by her mother and a nanny. “The babies are in great hands,” Fiore added.
For now, Brooke is simply “taking it one day at a time.”
Fiore confirmed that she is “responding well to the hospital care” and “just keeps getting stronger and stronger.”
