UPDATE: 2:00 p.m. PST — The judge overseeing the case was unable to hear Mueller’s request on Wednesday morning because another case was being heard. Lawyers for Charlie Sheen and Mueller are expected to go before the judge in the afternoon session.
Charlie Sheen‘s third ex-wife Brooke Mueller‘s lawyers are headed back to child dependency court in yet another attempt to strip Denise Richards of temporary custody of her twins, Bob and Max – a move which the child protective services will oppose, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
Richards and Sheen aren’t expected in court for the proceedings. Mueller recently checked into the Betty Ford Clinic for a 30-day treatment stint, marking the 20th time she’s entered a treatment facility to seek help for substance abuse.Mueller wants the twins to live with her brother in Orange County, which would be extremely disruptive to the little boys, an insider explained to Radar.
“The Los Angeles County of Department of Children & Family Services will again oppose the boys being removed from Denise’s care. Max and Bob are in preschool and would be uprooted from their schedule and routine, if Brooke gets her way. The transition of the boys from Brooke to Denise’s house has been very smooth, and they are both extremely happy. They go to school, go on field trips with their class. That would all change if Brooke’s request is granted. It makes no sense, and Brooke’s sole motivation is that she is concerned about her $55k a month in child support,” thesource exclusively told RadarOnline.com.
Although Mueller is seeking to regain custody of her twins, the judge shot down the same request by Mueller last week.
