An insider from the LACPS tells HollywoodLife.com that Brooke’s stint in rehab and Charlie’s brush with domestic assault won’t affect their parental custody
Here’s the good news for Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller: despite your recent screw-ups: they’re not going to lose their kids!
An insider at the LA Department of Children and Family Services tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that the couple’s twins, one-year-old sons Max and Bob, will remain in the couple’s custody as long as they play by the department’s rules.
“Charlie Sheen is on what we call his ‘honeymoon period’,” says the source of the Two and A Half Men star, 46, who was charged with assaulting his wife at Christmastime. “He’s going to be minding his P’s and Q’s right now.
As for Brooke, 32, the insider says that her recent trip to rehab won’t affect the department’s open investigation. “What most likely will happen – because she’s voluntarily getting clean – is when she gets out of the facility, we could give ‘voluntary family maintenance’ to the mom and ‘voluntary family reunification’ to the dad, because he was the abuser.”
But there will be ramifications if Brooke and Charlie if they break the rules. “The department could either issue a non-detain petition and request a court hearing – meaning the kids stay with the parents, but the parents have to go to court, or they can detain the children and take them away from the parents since they had agreed to follow certain rules and didn’t do so.”
