A family lawyer tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that because of Brooke and Charlie’s addiction problems, they’re in very real danger of losing their children
If Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen do separate in the wake of the messy domestic dispute that occurred over Christmas, child services won’t be so quick to grant Brooke custody of her one-year-old twins Max and Bob. Now that she’s checked herself into the Two Dreams Outer Banks drug and alcohol rehab facility in North Carolina for alleged crack addiction, a court may rule that she isn’t a fit mom.
“Child Protective Services look at a few things, including the past history of parents and the current happenings,” Los Angeles-based family attorney Michael G. Dave explains exclusively to HollywoodLife.com. “It obviously doesn’t look good that she’s checking into a facility that looks like rehab because that seems like she’s still using.”
Even though there has not been a divorce discussion between Charlie, 44, and Brooke, 32, Dave says that if the court finds Brooke to be an incompetent mother, the couple might be forced to split.
“It’s a thin line. Charlie should be nervous,” Dave tells us. “If there is a social services issue with Brooke, they are going to step in – and the only way Charlie can thwart them from taking charge is if he files for divorce and takes custody of the kids. Then again, they could both be deemed unfit.”
Worst case scenario? If the Two and a Half Men star and Brooke are both found to have relapsed, their boys will be placed with relatives. If there are no relatives found suitable to act as guardians, Max and Bob will be placed in foster care.
If Charlie and Brooke want to keep their kids, they seriously need to get it together before they appear in an Aspen court Feb. 8.
