Charlie Sheen files for custody of twin boys from ex-wife Brooke Mueller, see why

Carlos Irwin Estévez, popularly known as Charlie Sheen, is an American actor and film producer born September 3, 1965 in New York, United States.

Sheen has been at the center of numerous controversies, with reports of his alcohol, drug abuse and marital problems, as well as allegations of domestic violence flooding the internet.

Indeed, every action has consequences, in March 2011, CBS and Warner Bros. terminated Sheen’s Two and a Half Men contract.

This termination trailed his derogatory comments about the series’ creator, Chuck Lorre.

Ever heard of the “Charlie Sheen effect “?, the term was christened after Sheen publicly announced that he was HIV positive.

The shocking revelation made on November 17, 2015, resulted in a vast increase of online search queries for HIV prevention and testing. That was how the term the Charlie Sheen effect was coined.

In 2010, Sheen was the highest-paid actor on television, earning US$1.8 million per episode of Two and a Half Men.

Emergency request

Sheen has been married three times and has five children and one grandchild.

Recent reports have emerged on how the actor launched a bid to gain full custody of his teenage twins in the event that his ex-wife Brooke Mueller fails a drug test, according to court documents.

With the emergency request granted to the actor on Thursday, he will assume sole legal custody of 14-year-old, Bob and Max, but, there is a condition attached to it.

The outcome of his legal claim hinges on whether Mueller tests positive for drugs or alcohol. If she does, he will “immediately” assume legal custody of the two boys.

The court order read: “Brooke shall test for drugs and alcohol (1) as often as required by her probation officer, (2) within 24 hours of a written request (email or text) from Charlie or his attorney, and (3) at a minimum of once per week regardless.”

It also states that Mueller’s “custody/visitation will be terminated immediately following any positive test”, with any “missed test will be considered a positive test.”

Under terms agreed by the parents, Mueller would also have to hand over the “names, addresses and telephone numbers for all her regular, historic sources of controlled substances” to Sheen’s attorney.

The pair agreed to the stipulations in formal documents in November 2022 and August 2023. However, the Hollywood star was given permission to file an ex parte motion, which means it can be granted without his ex’s response.

Sheen celebrates six years of sobriety

As earlier mentioned in this article, 58-year-old Sheen has fought addiction in the past. But recently, he celebrated six years of sobriety and recently said he sees himself as a ‘single dad’.

Meanwhile, Mueller, voluntarily checked herself into a rehab clinic after battling against addiction.
She took the bold step in 2019.

Sheen has hinted that her struggles are far from over as he has been raising the teenagers.

“I’ve mostly been raising my 14-year-old boys,” he told People magazine on December 11.
“Their mom has been trying to figure some stuff out on her end, so she’s not in the picture too much right now.”
