UDPATE 1:24 P.T. — RadarOnline.com has learned that in a twist to the latest custody battle development, Bob and Max, four, and their temporary guardian, will now be moving in with their mother, Brooke. After a week of drama, the drug-troubled ex of Charlie Sheen finally got all she wanted.
Scott Mueller went to a Los Angeles court on Friday morning -- with the blessing of the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services — and was granted custody.
He will get the children tonight, a source has confirmed.
Scott had supervised visits with the children over summer, we’ve also learned.
The move followed Sheen’s second ex-wife, Denise Richards, indicating that she could no longer care for the troubled boys because of their “violent” behavior.
“With a heavy heart,” Richards laid out the painful story of how the boys came to find refuge with her and daughters Sam, Lola and Eloise.
But she detailed how recent contact with their mother, Mueller, had transformed them from “kind and loving” young boys to “zombie-like” boys who exhibit “extreme violent mood swings” and “violent behavior.”
According to Richards, her daughters had been "strangled, kicked in the head and stomach, scratched, bit, slapped, punched in the face and head" and spat on by the boys, as have the family dogs.
One night, she claimed, they even broke into their baby sister’s room and relieved themselves in her tub, flinging their feces all over her bathroom.
“With no authority to make decisions on their behalf, I feel my hands are tied in providing them the proper help, support, and care that I feel as a parent that they need,” the Wild Things star wrote.
For now, however, they’ll be living with Scott.
